Janus Hosts Third Annual Dinner in the Vines

The 2013 Dinner in the Vines, one of Janus Youth Programs' largest fundraisers of the year, was held September 7 at ArborBrook Vineyards in Newberg, Oregon. Now in its third year, this special event has grown to more than 125 guests, providing an opportunity to enjoy some of the best food and wine the Northwest has to offer 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 featuring local, organic ingredients from our own Food Works Farm.  Each course was paired with an ArborBrook wine and enjoyed while listening to live jazz. The beautiful fruit-filled vineyards, warm temperatures and setting sun rounded out the perfect backdrop for the evening. Dave and Mary Hansen, owners of ArborBrook Vineyards, donated a generous 20% of evening wine sales to Janus.

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.
