Recent and Upcoming Events

Plans are currently underway for our 2017 annual Taste the Tropics fundraising event – more details to come.

The 2016 annual Taste the Tropics benefit dinner took place on Saturday, October 15 at the Mercy Corps Global Headquarters, located at 43 SW Ankeny Street, Portland, OR 97204. Attendees enjoyed great food and live entertainment, music with local DJ Michael Morris, children’s station with hands on art, and guests presentations.  A silent auction and brief oral auction were held to provide opportunities for much needed contributions.  Event proceeds were used toward facilitating mobile medical teams run by local clinicians in Haiti during our most recent trip in December 2016.
