Join me at RYSE's annual 'Be a Kid' fundraiser April 12
A fun night of music, food, festivities to support local youth
I hope you'll join me at one of West County's most popular evening events, the RYSE Center's "Be a Kid" annual fundraiser

The RYSE Center creates a safe space for young people to learn, heal, and transform their lives and communities. It's served thousands of West County young people since it opened over 10 years ago. 

This annual "Happy Hour" event lets you experience the interactive programs that RYSE youth enjoy. There will be a disco roller rink, food, music, youth art gallery, beer garden, cocktail and wine bar, dancing, giveaways and more! This year's theme is "Glow the Funk Up." 

This event is for adults age 21 or over, and is a fun way to meet and mingle with neighbors while raising funds for a great cause -- the youth of West County. 

I'm a proud founder of RYSE and deeply believe in its work, which is guided by social justice principles.

WHEN: 6 pm to 10 pm Friday April 12
