Guests get a jump on their gift shopping at Riford Center event


The Riford Center became a Winter Wonderland on Nov. 12 when it hosted a Holiday Shopping Extravaganza with 14 vendors offering a variety of exclusive items. The event, despite heavy rains, drew more than 60 guests who enjoyed music by Rosie Goldstein, warm hors d’oeuvres from Girard Gourmet, and fabulous shopping. Honorary chair Phyllis Parrish, chair Dottie Stanley, and co-chair Reena Horowitz mingled with the rest of the honorary committee and guests.

“This fundraiser for The Riford Center truly served its purpose in not only raising funds necessary to continue providing excellent programs and activities, but also in reminding our community of the wonderful attribute The Riford Center is,” said Nancy Walters, Riford executive director.
