Janus Hosts Fifth Annual Dinner In The Vines

(Janus Board Member Tom Fink)

Clouds, wind and the threat of rain couldn’t keep away 154 excited guests at the fifth annual Dinner In The Vines held August 29 at ArborBrook Vineyards in Newberg, Oregon. For the first time the event was held under a tent, a beautiful addition to the ambiance and protection from the elements as our attendees enjoyed some of the best food and wine the Northwest has to offer all while supporting the youth and programs of Janus.

Chef Jenn Louis of Lincoln Restaurant, Sunshine Tavern and Culinary Artistry, prepared an exquisite four-course dinner and Dave and Mary Hansen, owners of ArborBrook Vineyards, paired each course with an ArborBrook wine.

This event would not have been possible without the generous support of ArborBrook Vineyards, Chef Jenn Louis, our corporate sponsors and all 154 guests! Thank you for your contributions to this wonderful evening.

Five years ago when he moved to Portland and was involved in grassroots social justice work, he learned about Janus’ work in the community and applied for a Crisis Intake Specialist position at Harry’s Mother, our Runaway Youth Services program. Since then, Sina has continued to help develop a trauma informed approach to the work done within his cohort, build relationships with youth and families and offer referrals to other partnering agencies. We talked to Sina to find out more about what he does in his current position.
