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.

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month

Robin Miller, a Case Manager in our Washington Program, was 21 years old when she was sexually exploited. “In 1993, I was trafficked from a club in Portland up and down the West Coast and in six states.” It took me six years to finally get the courage to leave my trafficker in 1999, but healing from the abuse took more than a decade more, in part, because there was no coordinated system of care available to support survivors,” she said. Robin gave this testimony before the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners last year. Once again, the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners adopted a proclamation on January 17, 2019 recognizing January as Human Trafficking Awareness Month in Multnomah County.
