PORTLAND, OREGON, USA, March 4, 2015 / -- Local sustainable event and new sustainable savings coupon book helps non-profit Trash For Peace expand their visibility and programs with local kids. Trash For Peace, which teaches urban kids about recycling and healthy eating, will be featured at a fundraiser and publishing event at German-influenced gourmet cuisine Slide Inn Restaurant on March 27, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event, which is free to the public, will be MC’d by popular local comedian Curtis Cook and include door prizes, free coupon books, an old school DJ in the Jade lounge and opportunities to donate directly to Trash For Peace.

Publisher, Raymond F. Quinton said, “I love what Trash For Peace does and what they stand for. They give urban kids a chance to have some hands on involvement with recycling and sustainability, and they get to see how to grow that involvement into business opportunities.”

The event, sponsored by LoanStar Home Lending and Global Marketing Concepts, will feature free copies of the new Sustainable Savings coupon book and be highlighted with an exclusive auction for a Tesla Model S 3 Hour Chauffeured Dinner tour--as well as door prizes, from local sustainability focused businesses.

Trash For Peace, founded by Executive Director Laura Kuchner, works with schools to teach kids how to build recycling bins from recycled materials, teaches kids zero waste, healthy cooking techniques, and has plans to expand their coffee roasting project with a solar roaster to teach youths how to run a sustainable business.

The Fundraiser and publishing event will be hosted by German-influenced gourmet cuisine restaurant Slide Inn at 2348 SE Ankeny and will run from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. All attendees will have an opportunity to purchase special-menu food and drinks, learn about Trash for Peace, receive a free coupon book, and can learn why they should NOT sell smart phones and laptops and should securely donate them at the event through Free Geek. Attendees will have an opportunity to make contributions to Trash For Peace direct. “We’ve put together a fun, Celebrity Apprentice-style fundraising program that will be MC’d by local, popular comedian Curtis Cook,” Quinton said, “The idea is to have folks learn about sustainable options, securely donate smart phones and laptops, have fun, purchase food and drinks, and make direct donations as they want to a great organization. Quinton added more fun to the mix by providing music and dance from 9 to 11 p.m. DJ FunkHaus will be spinning old school 70s and 80s dance tracks in the Jade Lounge next door “No party would be complete without Earth Wind and Fire,” Quinton said, “Music makes people feel good, and we want to thank everyone that attends with some great dance music.”

Presenting Sponsor LoanStar Home Lending SVP of Marketing and Business Development, Kenn Bartley said, “We want to do our part and support the businesses and community who care about our future. We are demonstrating that sustainability can be fun, too!
