Richard Celebrates His 50th!

A Special Party and Raffle
This is the 18th annual celebration to honor kitchen worker Richard Hare and his big heart for Edgewood. He holds a "Richard's Birthday Raffle" every year by selling raffle tickets in the Commons during the lunch mods for a $1 donation. This year there will be FIVE special gift cards given as prizes. Winners will be drawn on Thursday, October 19th (his birthday) during lunch mod 6. The gift cards are donated by Richard and all the money collected in ticket sales go to Second Harvest Food Bank. Richard has told us his goal is to raise $1000 for Second Harvest! 

In the past, Richard was honored with the "Be Like Mike Award" from NBC-15 Share Your Holidays for his ongoing commitment to Second Harvest.

In addition to his annual raffle, the school will host a birthday party for Richard during mod 6 on October 19. Family members and administration will have lunch with him and faculty/staff will be invited to come to the Commons to sing "Happy Birthday." Students in the Peer Ministry class have helped to plan this event.
