Riverside Golf and Country Club hosted the 2015 Herm Gilliam Memorial Golf Tournament for Kids earlier this month, welcoming 80 golfers to their beautiful course for a full day of golf, contests, auctions and awards.

In addition to raising funds to support the many services Janus Youth Programs provides to children, youth and families in Oregon and Southwest Washington, the tournament honors the memory of Herm Gilliam, a member of the Portland Trail Blazers 1976-77 NBA Championship Team. Herm was a longtime supporter of Janus and past board member.

Amidst steep competition, the McMenamins Edgefield took home the top trophy for the third year in a row. Congratulations to all the winning teams in this year’s tournament:

1st Low Gross – McMenamins Edgefield: Jeff Bryant, Jay Burk, Curt Morgan, DJ Simcoe
2nd Low Gross – The Standard #1: Blair Filuk, Randy Cater, Mike Walters, Chris Wolfe
1st Low Net – Friends of Herm Gilliam: Lloyd Neal, Adam Richard, Gary Pigg, Ron Weeden
2nd Low Net – The Standard #2: Greg Koleno, Marc Steinman, Drew Hedges, Ned Taylor

A special thank you to our sponsors for their support.

Every day our Outreach Specialists in Washington are busy serving homeless youth who have no one else to turn to. The team of three staff—Keeva Haverkost, Jessica Villasenor, and Jean Withers—work like a well-oiled machine, supporting each other so they can provide high quality service to youth. All of them are passionate about their work. Bettina Boles, Program Supervisor of The Perch and Yellow Brick Road Washington, says of her team, “Each person brings their unique contribution and special reason to work as an Outreach Specialist.” According to Bettina, the team has multifaceted roles— hosting The Perch—our drop-in center for youth—conducting street outreach for Yellow Brick Road, Washington and leading educational presentations that help the community better understand human trafficking and its impact in Clark County.

Sixth Grader Organizes Sock Drive For Janus Youth

Eleven-year old Quentin Brown organized a winter sock drive at his school, Cascade Heights Public Charter School, collecting 582 pairs of socks for our youth. This is his second year organizing the sock drive.

 Last year, Janus awarded Quentin the “Stars for Kids Award” for his contributions to our youth. Each year on his birthday, Quentin asks family members to give him gifts that he can donate to Portland’s homeless youth. Rather than getting toys and games, Quentin gets socks, water bottles, hats and scarfs that he packs up in a bin and brings down to the Janus administrative office. Last year, he even brought a little piggy bank with all of his savings and gave it to Janus. He has been doing this for seven years now. By thinking of the needs of others, he sets an example for his peers, family and community, showing the impact kids have on helping other kids. Quentin demonstrates that acts of kindness can be cultivated at a young age.
