The 33rd Annual PBL Christmas Luncheon, Friday December 13th at the Oregon Zoo

October 17, 2019

The individuals of Portland Business Luncheons invite you to the 33rd annual PBL Christmas Luncheon at the Oregon Zoo on Friday December 13, 2019, 11:15-1:30. This year’s speaker is Oregon native Katy Spangler Crane.

Katy is a loving mother, grandmother, friend and neighbor and is a decades-long leader and mentor in the Portland business and faith community.

Having grown up on the East side of Portland, Katy attended Duniway Elementary, Cleveland High School and then on to Lewis and Clark College where she met her husband Doug Crane.

While starting her nursing career at Emanuel Hospital in the newly formed Burn Center, she and Doug also started their family.

After a difficult time for their marriage, Katy moved on from nursing to join Doug in the family business where she designed and produce educational curriculum which helped corporations transform their corporate culture.

Katy later became involved with Friends of the Children – a non-profit that works with at risk children matching professional mentors who guide children from 1st grade until they graduate from high school.

After this Katy & Doug felt led to move to Washington DC for 1 ½ years. During this journey they experienced Jesus in a fresh way and it changed the trajectory of their lives.

Currently, Katy is active with friends in Washington DC and attends Cedar Mill Bible Church in West Portland. She and Doug also host a community group focused on Jesus and his teachings every Thursday night at their home. The now famous “Jag Night” started over 15 years ago with a group working on a 1967 E-Type Jaguar.

Every day since the crisis that almost destroyed their marriage in 1983, Katy has been walking with Jesus and living out her true faith.

Last call for the 32nd Annual Christmas Luncheon, Friday December 14th, 2018

December 12, 2018

Portland Business Luncheons presents the 32nd Annual Christmas Luncheon with keynote speaker Robert King. Friday, December 14th, 2018 from 11:15 am to 1:30 pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton.

Robert King is a retired Commander of the North Precinct of the Portland Police Bureau. In 1991 while on duty, Robert was stabbed by a suspect and survived. Ironically this one traumatic event began a 27-year friendship with Wendell Birkland who was Robert’s attorney through the investigative process.

Their friendship became a catalyst for Robert to become active in racial reconciliation in the community.

Robert has worked with community members and police colleagues to create a space for encouraging diverse people to navigate through differences and see similarities in each other’s humanity.

A Northeast Portland native, Robert attended Central Catholic High School and graduated from Portland State University. Robert and his wife Marci have three grown children. Robert credits his faith in Jesus with the nurturing love he was shown by his Mexican grandmother as a child.

This Christmas season, come be inspired by a message of hope, healing and love from a man who is deeply grateful to have served his community for many years, and who continues to pray for the safety, health and healing of the lives he served.
