Hearts of Gold Gala cancellation

The May 2nd Hearts of Gold Gala was cancelled due to COVID-19 and the concern for the safety and well being of our patrons. Hence your participation in the fundraising campaign and online auction is evermore critical to over 100 residents with mental and developmental challenges who call Riverside Foundation home. We ask that you please make a gift at the level of your would-be ticket and paddle raise. Our goal is to raise $150,000, for the Work and Activity Center.

In the fall, the Work and Activity center will be moving locations and expanding Riverside Foundation’s programing designed to improve residents’ skill sets, independence and fulfilling lives. Funds will be used to purchase; computers, iPads and supplies for teaching lifelong skills, special furniture designed for limited mobility and handicap equipment, and work training and recreational offerings.


These changes demonstrate Riverside Foundation’s commitment to its residents and continuing to make it A Home Like No Other.


WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please join us in making this campaign a success.


Thank you for your support.
