Pendleton/Timbers Blanket Design Contest
The Portland Timbers have partnered with the iconic Pendleton Woolen Mills to launch a special design contest where fans can create their own Timbers centric designed blanket, with the winning design being sold at both Timbers and Pendleton retail locations. Proceeds from the sale of this one-of-a-kind designed blanket will benefit the “Fields For All” initiative which helps build youth soccer fields and futsal courts each year in the greater Portland area.
The contest will work in two parts. During the initial entry period, anyone can submit a design. From that initial pool of entries, two finalists will be selected and posted on the Timbers Facebook page, with voting beginning on Monday, June 8, 2015 and ending on Friday, June 12, 2015. The design with the most votes will be created into a blanket.
