Love Golf? Sign up for the Herm Gilliam Memorial Golf Tournament for Kids this Summer!

Join us on Monday, August 29 at the Riverside Golf & Country Club for a fun-filled afternoon of golf, contests, awards, lunch and dinner. More than a great afternoon of golf, the Herm Gilliam Memorial Golf Tournament for Kids is a fundraiser that helps change lives and build futures for 6,000 youth each year.

A member of the Trail Blazers 1976-77 NBA Championship Team, Herm Gilliam served on Janus’ Board of Directors and chaired our Scholarship Fund. With his passing, the community lost a true friend and one of its greatest treasures.

Don’t miss out on being part of a great event that honors Herm Gilliam and supports at-risk children, youth and families. Click here for registration form.Golf Tournament

Celebrating 20 Years with Janus

When Candy Lowe started her first job for Janus at Oak Bridge Youth Shelter in Washington 20 years ago, she had no idea that it was the beginning of a long term career. She also didn’t know how much she would like working with youth and that she had a talent for it. When you meet Candy, it isn’t hard to see why. She has a big, friendly smile that would make anyone feel safe and welcome.

A Message from Janus’ Executive Director, Dennis Morrow, on the Orlando Tragedy

Like all of you, I have been profoundly and personally impacted by the tragedy in Orlando. It attacks at a visceral level everything that we at Janus believe in and support—for our youth, for our staff, and for our Board as well as for our own family and friends. We have been preparing for participation in Portland’s Gay Pride Parade event with many youth and staff from our different programs taking buttons that proudly identify them as being from Janus and of supporting PRIDE for all. It is hard to fathom the level of hatred that exists among humans—especially when the target of that hatred is so many of our youth…every night Janus provides safety off the streets for nearly 100 youth and 30-40% of them identify as LGBTQ. And the age of those murdered represent both the ages of our youth…and many of our staff.

Spanish Flair for Dinner in the Vines this August

This August, Dinner in the Vines will feature a unique, Spanish dinner thanks to the talents of Crown Paella Chef and owners, Scott and Emily Ketterman. The husband and wife team honed their skills at Paley’s Place, Michelin two and three-star restaurants in Spain, Simpatica and Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch in Carmel, California. The evening’s four-course dinner begins with an assortment of tapas, and culminates with paella cooked in huge, authentic pans outdoors. The most important ingredients for their paella—rice and saffron—is sourced directly from Spain. Hear from Scott Ketterman on what inspires his traditional Spanish cooking and from ArborBrook owners—Dave and Mary Hansen—on the pairing of the wines that will be served for each course. Make your reservation today! Invite1.pdfDinnerinVinesRes1.pdf
