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.

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.
