Quotes from previous events:

"Lane Powell is proud to partner with Climate Solutions in efforts to position the Pacific Northwest as the go-to region for innovation in clean technology.  Last year's inaugural fundraising event for Climate Solutions was a who's who of companies and individuals working to create the clean energy future.  We look forward to continued participation in this new annual tradition." 

     ~ David Van't Hof, Lane Powell (Portland event 2009)

"We felt that the 1st Annual Climate Solutions Portland event was a great success. As sponsors we saw tremendous value in having our company recognized as a key supporter of the important work Climate Solutions is doing in the state of Oregon. We were impressed the number of people that attended the event and we expect that the 2ND Annual Climate Solutions Dinner will have an even bigger impact.”
