ST. GEORGE – On Nov. 5-6, Dick Nourse and his son Dayne, who is battling Osteogenisis Imperfecta, are coming to host a fundraising event for the Red Rock Center for Independence.
The Red Rock Center for Independence assists individuals who may be experiencing challenges living independently. They not only assist individuals who were born with a disability, but they also assist persons who find themselves in need due to issues related to ageing or conditions that may arise from a physical injury. Established in 1989, the Center has helped thousands of people overcome obstacles to remain independent.
“The Red Rock Center for Independence is really a sleeping giant in the community and is making a huge difference in the lives of those who may need a little help,” said James McFadden. “As strong advocates for the Americans with Disabilities Act, they ensure everyone has access to the world around them. My son was born with a disability and I know that someday he may want to live on his own. It’s nice to know there’s an organization out there that can help him do that. Besides, you never know when you might find yourself in a situation where you need assistance, too.”
On Nov. 5, join the RRCI at the Holiday Inn for their annual Silent Auction and Dinner Hosted this year by Nourse and his son. Dress is semi-formal. Chef Imi will be presenting his signature cuisine and there will be live entertainment by inspirational singer/songwriter Justin Hines and comedian Mike Beers. Cost is $45 per plate. Call 435-673-7501 to make your reservations.
On Nov. 6, Justin High will perform inspirational music at Tuacahn. Hines will be flying from Canada to perform. Born with Larsens syndrome, he has traveled the world with his message of hope. To hear Justin’s music and learn more about this event, visit www.meetjustin.org.
