Our 45th Anniversary Benefit Bash!
On October 14 Rimland clients, family members, staff, friends, and supporters came together at Rimland’s headquarters to celebrate the organization’s 45th anniversary.
Festivities included a preview of the first annual Visionary Outsider Art Show, a wine pull, a new video about Rimland’s history and programs, upbeat jazz standards by the David Jennings Trio, and a beautifully catered menu of tasty delights.
Master of Ceremonies Judy Hsu (of ABC 7) hosted the evening’s program with skill and humor.
Rimland CEO Pamela Watson offered words of welcome and gratitude to the attendees, and board member Bill Egan charted the organization’s development over 45 years and shared stories from Rimland’s history.
Also during the program, Rimland bestowed special recognition on three of the organization’s most faithful associates for their longtime partnership and service: Ann Moltz, a Rimland parent and volunteer who directs Rimland’s art program; Dave Work, a Rimland employee since 1975; and community development partner Lycrecia Parks, Director of Portfolio Management at the Chicago Community Loan Fund.
And a good time was had by all!
