We need your help! 

We are excited to be planning our signature event, Party in the Park, at Como Park on July 29. This is our largest community gathering of the year and we hope everyone can join us.  

One way you can help with this event is donate to the silent auction. The auction is a popular event and an important fundraising component. We can use your help to solicit donations. Whether you ask for a gift card, a service, or a product, your participation is critical to a successful auction and to raising funds to support the RIS mission.  

As always, a Gift-in-Kind form is required with donation
