2017 Black Tie and Tennis Shoes

The 2017 Black Tie and Tennis Shoes Gala was a huge success, thank you to all of the attendees, volunteers, and sponsors for their participation and generosity!

“What a great event Black Tie & Tennis shoes 2017 was! I just love when organizations marry their mission and fundraising event the way NWOBS does with their ropes course. It is seriously an amazing logistical feat and one of the most original event ideas I’ve seen to date.”
-Misty Marquam, Auctioneer


Almost 400 people joined together to celebrate and support Northwest Outward Bound School’s Portland Schools Program and future scholarships. We are overjoyed and inspired by the enthusiasm of individuals who believe in the life-changing experience of Outward Bound. Your support ensures that more students like Camerin Phillip from H.B. Lee Middle School will reach their full potential!
