Amber Gilley Works Toward Creating Local Veteran’s Memorial

Amber, a broker in our Hillsboro branch office, was inspired to establish a veterans memorial in Cornelius after her friend Kenny Leisten was killed in Iraq in 2004. She and her supporters have been actively pursuing the cause, and the City Council recently voted to rename Arboretum Park to Veterans Memorial Park. Now Amber and other park supporters are trying to raise enough money to fund the installation of a permanent memorial at the park. Community support has been growing swiftly and fundraising plans are well underway to bring in the estimated $7,000 – $12,000 needed.

Amber is organizing a Spaghetti Dinner & Silent Auction on April 12 at the Forest Grove Armory. To learn more about this fundraiser, or to support this endeavor, please contact her at 503-481-1615 or email

Amber, we appreciate your dedication to this wonderful cause and to your community as a whole. We’re proud to have you on the Prudential Northwest Properties team!
