“Let’s Do a Show” might have been the inspiration behind the Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, Inc.’s All-Star Cabaret, but “We Can Do This” became the often quoted mantra of the production. Agents from the North Portland office, Stella Kopperud and Johanna Keith, both vocalist performers themselves knew there must be more talent among fellow agents, so they spread the word and Voila – the 1st Annual All Star Cabaret-2008 was conceived!

No small task to say the least, Stella and Johanna brought the idea to the Foundation Representatives of the twelve company offices. After deciding to go ahead with the idea came the reality that there was a lot of ground work to make the event come to fruition. Leaders emerged with Roger Mosser taking on the marketing role, Sally Baker coordinating the silent auction, Mardi Davis coordinating volunteers and Ross Seligman as music coordinator. Aladdin Theater, in Portland’s eastside, was booked for the August event and performers came out of the woodwork as news of the opportunity spread. Volunteers and performers came from every office with acts of singing, dancing, skits, comedy along with jazz and rock bands. The event was even more successful than initially hoped as it raised over $13,000 to support the Windermere Foundation. Working together to plan and execute the event not only raised money, but also it triggered camaraderie amongst the agents and staff of all the offices.
