About us

On December 31, 1990, Champagne Ball founder Mathew Weber went out to celebrate New Year’s Eve. He hit a local hot spot where he waited in long lines to get a drink. He couldn’t find his friends or a place to sit.

He still remembers his sense of disappointment that night and his thought that New Year’s Eve should be a special night. People should dress up, spend time with their friends and not stand in lines all night. And, most important, people ought to have fun!

The next year Weber threw a New Year’s Eve party at the East Bank Saloon, 115 people showed up and the Champagne Ball was born. Twenty-seven years later the Champagne Ball has outgrown three venues including the Portland Marriott and The Governor Hotel (The Sentinel) and since 2000 the event has made its home at the Hilton Portland.

The Champagne Ball staff and volunteers, together with the team at the Hilton Portland will work very hard to ensure your New Year’s Eve is special. We look forward to seeing everyone dressed up and having fun at the 27th Annual Champagne Ball.

Oregon Active - Champagne Ball

Party With A Purpose

The Champagne Ball proudly supports Oregon Active, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides and facilitates Adventure Therapy (AT) Programs for children and adults in our community battling cancer and other life challenging conditions. They provide an outlet for participants and their families to discover their passions, fulfill their dreams, and create memories that will last forever.

A portion of proceeds from the Champagne Ball directly benefits our Pay It Forward Project. We believe the best way to help someone is to put them in a position to help someone else. We developed the “Pay It Forward Project” so that once our participants fulfill their dreams, they get to join the Oregon Active team and grant the dreams of the upcoming participants. This revives their sense of purpose, which is often the most valuable thing they lost with their condition.
