2024 Love Night

 

Every year we host an event called Love Night where we raise money and donate it to a deserving cause or someone in need from the community. This year the money will go to Ruben Gonzalez (58). About 5 years ago he was given a choice whether to adopt or give his twin grandkids to a foster home due to the mom being unable to take care of them. He decided to adopt them and have been living with him since then. One of the twins is being diagnosed due to a physical problem he suffers from and is currently attending several doctor appointments. 1 year after adopting the twins he had to make another difficult decision of adopting a 3rd child. Now he has two 8 year olds and one 4 year old living with him in a small trailer in Somerton, AZ. He has a chronic lumbar condition and he is unable to work. He only lives off the little help he gets from programs available and whatever hand outs family can afford to give. All the kids’ clothes are also hand me downs from family or stuff he can afford from garage sales, swap meets or goodwill. Giving the money to Ruben could help better feed the kids, help him buy clothes for school, pay living expenses and other things the kids might need.

 We would like to invite you to our very special event on February 22nd in support.
