A community that gives

A community that givesA big thank-you goes to Gary Charlon and Ridge Project, which partnered with the Ridgecrest Area Association of Realtors last week to host a fund-raising spaghetti dinner to assist those afflicted by disasters in Texas and Florida.

This was no small undertaking by dedicated team of volunteers, who served 800 dinners and raised more than $6,000 for the cause.

The endeavor speaks to the big heart of our community and the caring and compassionate individuals who live here. Thanks again, Ridge Project and RAAR. Not only do you make our community look good, but you make us feel better about ourselves, too.
