Age of Aquarius
When and where is the Wonderball Gala?
The Wonderball begins at 6:00 pm on Saturday, October 7 at the Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Portland, OR 97232.
Where should I park?
Parking will be available on surrounding streets or in the Oregon Convention Center Parking Garage entrance on Lloyd Blvd. for $10.00. Go to JoyRx.org/GalaParking to view a map.
What is the suggested attire?
The evening will take you on a trip through the vibrant colors, sounds, and styles of the Age of Aquarius, inspired by Woodstock. We suggest playful cocktail attire accented with bright colors, and bold patterns and prints. For a lighter touch, consider incorporating beaded jewelry or era pins. Visit JoyRx.org/Aquarius for inspiration.
What if I have special dietary needs?
Please email Madison Burke at MBurke@JoyRx.org by October 2nd.
What is Pre-Registration?
When you pre-register your credit card information with CCA, you’ll enjoy a fast and easy check-in the night of the Wonderball.
How do I pre-register?
It’s simple! Just go to JoyRx.org/WonderballGuest or contact Madison at MBurke@JoyRx.org.
Why does CCA use Mobile Bidding?
There are a number of reasons to use mobile bidding:
Do I have to register separately for Mobile Bidding?
No! Registering for the Wonderball will also grant you access to the silent auction. Be sure to provide the same cell phone number the night of the event as when you register.
I have a friend who wants to come to the event but is not very good with computers or texting. Is there someone who can assist them?
Yes! We’ll have designated volunteers serving as "Bid Buddies" at the Wonderball. They are happy to help anyone who needs assistance with bidding, or who does not have mobile access.
What if I cannot bring a smartphone or tablet to the event? Can I still bid on packages?
If you have an older cell phone that has text message capability, you can register it at check-in the night of the event. This will allow you to receive outbid notifications via text message, but you will need to find a CCA volunteer "Bid Buddy" to place bids for you.
When can I start bidding?
If you’re registered in advance with your cell phone and email you may be notified of the opportunity to begin bidding early. Otherwise you will receive a text notification upon checking in at the event.
What is the after party?
The after party starts directly following the Wonderball at Spirit of ‘77 and will continue past midnight with plenty of dancing and delicious late-night snacks..
Admission and one drink ticket is included for anyone who attends the Wonderball. Additional guests are welcome to join us after paying a cover charge at the door.
Making a Gift During the Special Appeal
Can I make my Wonderball Gala Special Appeal gift in monthly installments to CCA?
Yes, simply tell our volunteers at the registration/checkout table that you would like to fulfill your gift by making monthly payments.
I work for a company that matches my gift. Can I do this?
Yes, please let our volunteers at the registration table know how we can help you complete your matching gift request. Our team will be happy to answer any other questions you may have!
