Over $110,000 Raised at Circle of Care Dinner

Gori Julian & Associates is pleased to announce that the Riverbend Head Start and Family Services' 24th Annual Circle of Care Award Dinner, held in Beth and Randy's Gori's honor, raised over $110,000 for local children.

Themed "Raising the Bar", the evening notably recognized the Gori's positive impact on the community through their professions, volunteerism and philanthropy. The fundraiser was held on May 11 at the Lewis and Clark Community College Commons, where 238 guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner, a silent and live auction while celebrating the contributions made by Riverbend Head Start & Family Services and Beth and Randy Gori.

"Beth and I are so extremely honored to have received the Circle of Care Award from an organization that reflects our values on family and has such a strong impact on this community," said Randy Gori, founding partner at Gori Julian & Associates. "I want to thank the businesses who sponsored the event, the guests who made donations and attended the dinner, and of course, Riverbend Head Start & Family Services for all that they do. My family and I truly enjoyed the evening, and are so grateful to have been a part of such a great cause."

The lead sponsors of the evening included Gori Julian and Associates, P.C., Intren, MRHFM, LLC and O'Connell, Tivin, Miller & Burns, LLC. Through sponsorships, reservations, auction earnings, raffle and donations, the event generated $110,435. Proceeds from the Circle of Care directly benefit the children and families enrolled in Riverbend Head Start & Family Services' programs. Without the community's support, the organization would not be able to provide its critical services, which build solid educational foundations and empowered families.
