Thank You for Another Successful AuctionDSC 1454 edited

On April 6th, Riverside held it's 14th Annual Auction. Thanks to our many sponsors, donations, and attendants, the night was a huge success, raising over $91,000. This year's Support A Need campaign raised $16,000 for a new Internship program that will provide paid positions to high school students with disabilities who are transitioning into employment. The remainder of the contribution will be used for our thriving programs to continue their excellent care and commitment to our participants. Auction-goers also received a surprise when Riverside President & CEO, Char Gentes, unveiled Riverside's 50th Anniversary campaign. Everyone in attendance was given a packet of sunflower seeds to contribute to our year-long promotion, "Strong Roots, Still Growing."
