The University of Portland chapter of A Moment of Magic was established in 2018 as one of the first West Coast chapters. Located on the beautiful Bluff overlooking downtown Portland, Oregon, we are excited to be in our second year of operation. This year, we hope to continue to strengthen and expand our relationship with local hospitals, non-profit organizations and families in the Pacific Northwest. We accept donations at any time and update our social media regularly with upcoming events, fun content, and pictures. Follow us to keep up with our chapter as we spread magic here in Portland!
