Gevurtz Menashe Partners With DoveLewis & Oregon Dress For Success

This fall, Gevurtz Menashe was a proud sponsor of two great local organizations: Dress For Success Oregon and DoveLewis.

In September, we partnered with DoveLewis animal hospital as an official vendor for the 20th annual Dogtoberfest, at Lucky Labrador Brew Pub, benefitting the organization’s blood bank. Our support included sponsored giveaways and information about pet protections and estate plans. The event featured community volunteers who washed, dried, and wrangled hundreds of dogs while their owners enjoy live music and Lucky Lab refreshments. All proceeds from the event benefited the DoveLewis Blood Bank.









This month, under the leadership of shareholder, Saville Easley, our firm partnered with OWLS and Dress For Success Oregon by participating in their annual fashion show fundraiser. Shareholders Shawn Menashe and Paige De Muniz each modeled professional attire from local Portland clothing boutiques  Mabel and Zora and The Lion’s Den Man’s Shop. This year’s fashion show raised over $5,000 for Dress for Success Oregon and garnered hundreds of articles of clothing through the event’s “Suit Drive.”
We continued our support by attending the organization’s annual Empowerment Breakfast on Wednesday, October 8th at the Sentinel Hotel. This year’s breakfast helped raise funds to support Dress for Success career development program which helps low-income women transition out of generational poverty.
