Clambake at Cafe Nell Benefits Q Center

What better way to celebrate an anniversary than to be transported to a beach, with the warm sand beneath your feet, a cocktail in hand and a seafood feast to dine on…

Always the ultimate hosts, the team at Cafe Nell wants to share their dream anniversary with everyone, while also raising money for a local cause! The two-year old neighborhood brasserie is hosting its second annual summer clambake on Sunday, September 12th to benefit both Q Center and Basic Rights Oregon.

“This is the party of the season,” says Darren Creely, co-owner of Cafe Nell. “As the success of last year’s event shows, there’s nothing like a clambake to bring Oregonians together.”

The Northwest neighborhood restaurant will transform its parking lot into a sandy beach, with an outdoor bar, a clam feast, live music, a raffle and more. A portion of all proceeds from the party will benefit Q Center as well as Basic Rights Oregon (BRO). Once the party wraps up, the donations continue. Cafe Nell will donate the sand to parks around the area through the local non-profit, Children’s Relief Nursery.

The party goes from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. and is 21 and over only. A $45 donation is suggested at the door, and includes food, drinks and entertainment. Legacy Health will provide free parking at NW 20th and Lovejoy, only a block away from the restaurant. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling the restaurant at 503-295-6487 or emailing [email protected].

This year’s sponsors are still rolling in, but rest assured that only the most delicious and intoxicating people & organizations will be involved.
