Portlanders doing good
As searchers continue their work, Kyron Horman's parents are hoping to add to the mounting search costs for their missing boy with a fundraising plant sale this weekend.
The sale is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Sleepy Ridge Farms in Mulino, 10 miles south of Oregon City.
The Kyron Horman foundation will collect half the proceeds from the sale of the evergreens, shrubs, native plants and other greenery.
Police have named no suspects in the 7-year-old's June 4 disappearance from Skyline School, but his parents, Desiree and Kaine Horman and his stepfather, Tony Young, continue to plead with the public to help raise funds for the search and keep the story alive.
The farm is at 28995 S. Beavercreek Road. For more information, visit www.bringkyronhome.org or www.sleepyridgefarms.com
Portland's Bradley Angle - the nonprofit that serves survivors of domestic and sexual violence - is hosting its own celebration of the human body and spirit at its annual fundraising event this weekend.
On Oct. 9, The Circus Project will host 'Cirque des Courageuses' - a showcase of aerial arts, acrobatics and music that will support the programs of Portland's oldest domestic violence organization.
Founded in 1975, Bradley Angle became the first domestic violence shelter on the West Coast, the fourth in the United States. Today the agency runs a 24/7 crisis line, transitional housing, support groups and three programs unique to Oregon: an economic empowerment program called Making Cent$, the Healing Roots Center (a culturally specific program for African and African-American survivors), and a program serving the gay community.
The Circus Project is a local nonprofit that uses the power of art to transcend social barriers and inspire personal transformation.
Monica Alexander, the anti-gang activist and grandmother profiled by the Portland Tribune last month, will speak at the event about her own personal transformation away from the criminal justice system and her drug addiction.
The event is set for 8 to 10 p.m. Oct. 9 in the Dolores Winningstad Theatre at the Portland Center for Performing Arts, 1111 S.W. Broadway.
Tickets are $40 and can be purchased through PCPA, Ticketmaster or the Bradley Angle website, bradleyangle.org.
