Rise will celebrate its 50th anniversary with several special events hosted throughout 2021 and into 2022. Check back here in the coming months to see what is planned for our friends and supporters.
Additional information for each event, including registering, sponsorships, tickets, etc., will be available online as we get closer to the individual events.
Here are some other special events planned --
Celebrate Rise! Fundraising Gala
Be sure to save the date for our Celebrate Rise Fundraising Gala on November 4, 2021, when we celebrate 50 years -- hopefully, together in person!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rise changed its 2020 Celebrate Rise to a virtual online event held on October 26, 2020. If you weren't able to tune in to join us then, you can watch the 28-minute program here!
With gifts from generous sponsors and donors, we raised more than $95,000!
During the online program, we also honored this year's Rise'ing Stars and Champions of the Mission. You can watch their awards video here.
We also met a great guy, Steven Eull, who exemplifies hard work and generosity. Meet Steven in this three-minute video.
Memorial reception honoring Truc Pham will be rescheduled in spring of 2021
We hope you will join us for a reception to remember and honor Truc Pham who was director of Rise's welfare-to-work programs for more than 20 years and died in January 2020.
The original memorial reception was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we hope to reschedule it. A new date and location will be announced this spring.
Give to the Max Day, Thursday, November 18, 2021
Mark your calendars again for this annual 24-hour give-a-thon -- a great way to support your favorite nonprofits online. In 2020, Rise received $2,308 in donations to support program services. Check us out.
