RICHMOND — During World War II, Sue Gaiser Graham worked on Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bombers, aircraft that helped the Allies win the war. Soon, her work coveralls will go on display at Richmond’s Rosie the Riveter Park, donated by her son and daughter-in-law.

Home Front Festival and Rosie Rally

 

Rosie Rally What to wear

Saturday August 12, 2017 - Richmond CA

Thousands will gather at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park for the 3rd annual Home Front Festival and Rosie Rally. Participants will dress as the iconic Rosie the Riveter, a character from a Westinghouse poster recruiting women into the war effort during WWII.  Join us as we defend (and break!) the Guinness World Record for "The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as a Rosie the Riveter.” This record now stands at 2,229 Rosies- Help us to honor real WWII "Rosies" and make history (again!)

DINNER RESCHEDULED TO AUGUST 30

In light of current concerns for everyone’s health and local government recommendations, we have rescheduled our 20th anniversary annual benefit dinner for August 30, 2020. We want to protect our community and especially not jeopardize our Rosies’ health (certainly our super stars of the event!).

I sincerely ask you to buy your tickets today. Rosie the Riveter Trust relies heavily on the funds raised from this annual dinner to keep our programs afloat and our park thriving. Our Board and I look forward to seeing you on August 30 - same time, same place!

My very best,
