Legacy of Love

ValleyLife raises $55K for underfunded programs for people with disabilities.

A crowd of 161 attended ValleyLife’s Legacy of Love fundraiser at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel on Oct. 1. The evening raised $55,190 to underwrite the organization’s unfunded programs such as physical and speech therapy, grief therapy, nutritional coaching and the arts program, which includes both visual and performing arts.

The cocktail hour featured a silent auction and raffle reception with a special cocktail hosted by Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Dinner opened with a performance from Wheels of Expression, a group of members who are in wheel chairs, dancing to “What a Wonderful World.” The ValleyLife Glee Club and Dance Troop performed to “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” bringing guests to their feet. In addition, Alma Guilford, parent of a ValleyLife member, presented a touching story of her son and his connection to ValleyLife.

JoAnn and Tim Holland were the honorees, and provided the evening’s closing remarks. Following their comments, C.C. Ryder and celebrity impersonator Scott Keo as Michael Bublé entertained. Nancy and Ron Kinnard, and Marla and Scott Berger co-chaired the event, and Connie Colla served as the evening’s emcee.

ValleyLife provides serves to individuals with disabilities by enriching their lives with rewarding experiences and opportunities.
