Helpful Hands 2nd Annual “Evening Under the Stars” Raises Almost $25,000

At RLH, we tend to “get our hands dirty” for the charities we support.  This year, Helpful Hands’ 2nd Annual “Evening Under the Stars” fundraiser was held at the home of our president, Richard Haines.  Our team constructed a dance floor and stage on the property, where a live band played and everyone enjoyed dancing under the stars.Helpful Hands Logo

We’d like to extend a big Thank You to supporters of the evening.  Together, we raised almost $25,000 for Helpful Hands.

Helpful Hands is a charity that looks to provide opportunities for children to develop life skills, to experience life equal to their peers, and to provide encouragement during a time in their lives when it is most needed.  The charity has sponsored children to attend the Oviedo Police Department’s Summer Camp and has joined with the Steinway Society for its annual Piano Gifting, giving talented children their first piano and lessons.
