2015 Partners Party

Click HERE for more pictures of event!

On November 5th, friends and colleagues gathered at the West End Ballroom to celebrate the achievements of Guardian Partners and help us build our programs by raising nearly $40,000 in sponsorships, ticket sales and gifts. Thank you to everyone who came and helped make the 2015 Partners Party such a memorable night. Your support is vital and helps us continue to prevent and identify abuse, neglect, and exploitation of vulnerable Oregonians. If you would like a digital copy of any of the photos, email Leathan at leathan@guardian-partners.org
