Riford gets rocked

More than 250 people came out for the second annual Rockin’ at the Riford open house and fund-raiser Sunday, May 18. Guests and members enjoyed food by French Gourmet, tarot card readings, caricature drawings, music and good company.

The event was held to raise much-needed funds for operational and maintenance expenses, as well as to increase membership.

Sherri Ahern, board member of Friends of Riford, said the event pulled in $10,000.

“It was a wonderful event that attracted a diverse crowd of all ages,” Ahern said.

The Riford Center, located at 6811 La Jolla Blvd., offers health and fitness activities, social and recreational programs, educational speakers and lecturers, and individualized services such as health insurance counseling, legal aid and referrals to other resources for adults.
