Thank you for making the 5th Annual Jane Barnes Revue a great success!

The “Jane Barnes Revue,” which was sponsored by Holly McHone Jewelers, and featured local eats from North Coast Food Web, tasty cocktails from North Coast Distilling, and beer from Fort George Brewery and Buoy Beer Co., was a sold-out, record-breaking year.

New and veteran “Gentleman Janes” strutted down the 24’ cat walk; this year’s lineup included the debut of Cole Jannush with Farmers Insurance, also known as Montana Duke and Jorge Gutierrez, Executive Director of the Lower Columbia Hispanic Council as Danessa Rosewood.   Jade Kiosse of Astoria Country Club and Rob Meadows of Hits 94.3, KRKZ were among the "Gentlemen Janes" that returned to the stage!

The Jane Barnes Revue also featured a live auction that included many, one-of-a-kind adventures.  Have you ever wanted to hike Saddle Mountain with Pete Gimre or see Astoria from the perspective of the KMUN radio tower?  How about enjoying the great outdoors exploring Camp Kiwanilong followed by a catered picnic lunch for 10?  Maybe you have been wanting a cocktail party with the one and only Patsy Oser reading some of her favorite pages? Auctioneer Mary Blake led the bids, with items going for $200, $500, and $1500.  ADHDA and our “Gentlemen Janes” would like to thank all who came out and celebrated with us for the 5th Annual, topsy-turvy fundraiser.
