CALCASA's Ellen Yin-Wycoff and RARCC's Larry McAdara in the lobby of RARCC's new offices


Earlier this week, David Lee, CALCASA’s Director of Prevention Services, and I had the opportunity to make a quick visit to the Riverside Area Rape Crisis Center (RARCC) to check out their new offices.  We also had a chance to meet with their staff and their Executive Director, Larry McAdara. Larry took us on a quick tour of their new offices that features several counseling rooms, a larger conference room for volunteer trainings/meetings, great accessible office space for staff and ample parking for clients and volunteers.
In addition to their regular work, RARCC staff and their Board of Directors are in the midst of preparing for their upcoming annual signature fundraising event, RARCC’s 29th Annual Dinner and Auction Gala, on May 8, 2010 at the Victoria Club in Riverside. This event features over 300 amazing auction items and attracts more than 350 participants each year making it the “premier” event in Riverside.  To learn more about this event and the Riverside Area Rape Crisis Center, check out their website.
