Fourth Annual Dinner In The Vines Largest Ever

Janus hosted a sold-out crowd for the fourth annual Dinner In The Vines, raising more than $41,000 for the children, youth and families Janus serves every year. More than 150 guests gathered at ArborBrook Vineyards in Newberg, Oregon for our largest fundraiser of the year.

As the sun set over the vineyards, guests savored an outstanding four-course dinner by Portland Chef Jenn Louis featuring local, organic ingredients from our own Food Works Farm. Each course was paired with an ArborBrook wine and enjoyed with live jazz. Dave and Mary Hansen, owners of ArborBrook Vineyards, pledged to donate 20% of evening wine sales to Janus.

This special event has grown steadily since its inception four years ago but 2014 brought the first ever sold-out crowd. Our guests were again treated to some of the best food and wine the Northwest has to offer while generously supporting the youth and programs of Janus.

This event would not have been possible without the generous support of ArborBrook Vineyards, Chef Jenn Louis, our corporate sponsors and all 150 attendees! Thank you for your contributions to this wonderful evening.

Eighth Grader Organizes Race For Janus Youth

When 14-year-old Bella told her mother she wanted to organize her own “Family Fun Run” to benefit Janus Youth Programs, her mom thought, “Why don’t you just run in a race instead?” But Bella had a vision and a strong drive to organize the event herself, which she did on May 20th at the Wilson High School track. Every detail of the event—from garnering donations for swag items, applying for a grant to help offset costs, organizing a bake sale, to publicity—Bella planned with support from family and friends. The event was a big success and raised close to $1,000 for Janus.
