We have a couple of exciting announcements about the 2018 UCP Friends Breakfast.
EVENT THEME: "Pursuing Passionate Purpose"
First of all, the theme will be “Pursuing Passionate Purpose.” This theme is inspired by the life and legacy of Bill Porter (1932-2013) – a Portlander who experienced cerebral palsy. He was an award-winning salesman, son, and friend… and an accidental icon.
Despite being told he was unemployable, Bill was one of The Watkin’s Company’s most successful door-to-door salesman. Bill’s determination to just go to work, pay his bills, and take care of his family caught the attention of a writer at The Oregonian. Next, he appeared on ABC’s 20/20 and TNT released a made for television movie about him (Door to Door).
Bill wasn’t looking for attention; instead, he was pursuing his purpose and in doing so, he created a legacy that will benefit others in our community for years to come.
We will also be sharing other stories of people in our community who are passionately pursuing their purpose.
Keynote Speaker: UCP Mom and City Commissioner, Chloe Eudaly
