Myrlie Evers-Williams at Caldera's "Stories of Change" Luncheon

CHANGE FOR GOOD: At "Stories of Change," a benefit luncheon for the Caldera arts program, held Wednesday at the Portland Art Museum, national civil rights champion Myrlie Evers-Williams told a very attentive audience her own personal story of change and how she worked to become a "blessing" to both her family and others throughout her life and career.

She was speaking on behalf of the year-round arts mentoring program that is a blessing to under-served students in Central Oregon and Portland. Caldera had had asked Williams (who has just joined their board) to be the keynote speaker for the sold-out luncheon. And, boy did Myrlie deliver.

As did the luncheon that attracted the likes of film director Gus Van Sant and piano man Thomas Lauderdale.  But the one person who seemed to enjoy the luncheon the most was none other than Caldera founder, Dan Wieden, of Wieden + Kennedy fame, who goes by the name "Papa Bear" whenever he's on the Caldera campus.
