The Friends of the Riford Center hosted major contributors and supporters under starlit skies to unveil its new courtyard on June 10. The design committee was headed by longtime board member Sherry Ahern and newly elected CEO Ruth Yansick. Laird Plumleigh from The Studio of Laird Plumleigh, created the design.

The landscaping was done by Justin Williams of La Jolla Landscape and Design, and the fountain’s ceramic artwork was completed by Reggie Dawes. Guests enjoyed “an exquisite bill of fare” by Chef Urs Baumann, and “enchanting music” by Rosie Goldstein. Major contributors to the renovations included Jacquie Woods, Jack and Judy White, Lynne and Mason Rosenthal, and Dr. Lee and Rhonda Vida.

Wine and appetizers will be served at a public opening for the courtyard, 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, June 24. RSVP to (858) 459-0831.
