We have some truly amazing friends. 240 of them decided to celebrate the organization at our 6th Annual Blue Jean Ball. Our speaker – Ali Premo – talked about the impact Riverside has had in her family. I had the welcome opportunity to sit with her and her husband and parents and hearing about their experiences made me (and everyone else in the room) proud to be part of this organization. Oh, and yes, the music – Ray Bailey made the trip with his band all the way from Los Angeles – was tremendous. The warmth of the crowd and the interest in helping us meet our goals were evident. And, we raised $174,000 in one night and you can be sure it will be put to good use.
