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,
