eUpdate - April 25, 2018

Join me at RYSE's annual 'Be a Kid' fundraiser April 27th!
A fun evening 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 eight years ago. 

This annual "Happy Hour" event lets you experience the interactive programs that RYSE youth enjoy on a daily basis. There will be music, dancing, karaoke, art, cooking, and amazing food and cocktails. This year's theme is a ' 90s House Party,  a fun flashback to the 1990s.

"Be a Kid" is a great way to meet and mingle with neighbors while raising funds for a great cause, the young people of West County. This event is for adults age 21 or over. 

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