Blue Jean Ball

Riverside’s Blue Jean Ball Brings Community Together

On Friday, October 14, 2016, longtime Riverside supporters and new friends gathered at The Sheraton Needham to celebrate Riverside’s community-based mental health services. Guests of the Blue Jean Ball came out in their best blue jeans to enjoy cocktails, dinner, an inspiring program, live auction, and great blues and R&B music from Louisiana’s Classie Ballou!

This year’s Blue Jean Ball was an incredible reminder of the strong community support we have for Riverside and the people we serve. Together we raised nearly $200,000 that will help us to expand our capacity to serve more children, adolescents, and adults. Thank you to everyone who attended!
