Message from RISE’s Executive Director:

We’re a local non-profit that services our houseless neighbors in the Reno/Sparks area.

I’m contacting you regarding the 10th annual Toast and Taste of Summer event being held June 15th, 2017 at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa from 6p – 9p.

We are raising funds to expand our food, clothing, and housing programs so we can better assist struggling families in the area to transition into a healthy and independent life.

The event features a fabulous roundup of the area’s top restaurants alongside fine wines and micro beers. Showcased photography from award-winning artist Keoki Flagg and a silent auction will round out the evening. Some of our current sponsors include KOLO News Channel 8, The Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, Whispering Vine, 40+ wineries and breweries, and 20 local restaurants. The event is expected to attract over 500 supporters and participating business will be prominently featured in the event program.

Can you help our silent auction by donating items or experiences? Any donation you provide is greatly appreciated and may be tax-deductible (please consult with your tax advisor).

Thank you for your time and please contact me with any questions or concerns.
