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.

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.
