50th Anniversary Celebration

Join us May 14 at La Mar Restaurant

as we celebrate 50 years of helping families in the Bay Area!

Help us honor the legacy of our founder, Ella Rigney, our former
executive director, Fr. David Lowell and family, and the more than
20,000 families you have helped us serve over the years.

This event will be different from our galas in the past to ensure your
well-being, and will include a special cocktail reception and
fundraiser. Our capacity is limited but your support is limitless!

You are a part of Raphael House’s rich history and successful
programs. We can only do this important work with you by our side,
and so we look forward to celebrating with you!
