Where do we even start trying to describe the absolutely wonderful and inspiring night we had at Spring Forward on May 24. A gorgeous setting (thank you, Botanical Center of RI!), amazing food (shout out to Ge Ge’s Southern Cuisine!), and our incredible graduating seniors, families, mentors, sponsors, donors and volunteers all under one roof, 110 strong!

We're so grateful for the Bristol Friends of RISE who hosted an fundraiser at Linden Place in December. It was a resounding success on so many levels. Many new friends were touched by Tim Flanigan’s description of founding RISE with Kevin Vigilante, and Eulanda LaFrance’s story of her family’s journey and the ways RISE has touched her life.

We had a GREAT time at the RISE family holiday party. Eighty-five people attended the party at GeGe’s Southern Cusine restaurant in Providence. There was great food, fun crafts and meaningful conversation. It was wonderful to get everyone together before the holidays.
