La Jollans Sally and Greg Ricchiuti hosted a salute to the firefighters of Station 9 in honor of September 11 at the La Valencia Hotel on Sept. 10. The community came out to raise funds for a renovation at the station (built in 1969) and connect over their memories of 9/11.

Guests had dinner together and ended the evening by bidding on the works of local artist Erik Skoldberg and dancing to the music of the Wayne Foster Band. The fire-station project has a half-million dollar price tag, and the Ricchiuti’s have raised $90,000 to date. More fund-raisers are planned. The project calls for an expansion of the station’s sleeping quarters, and the addition of a fitness and training center and fitness room.
