                   ​Rancheros Dinner & Fundraiser

The Santa Ana River Unit hosted a dinner/auction/fundraiser at the Riverside Rancheros Equestrian Center on July 27. The dinner was highlighted by Al's fabulous tri-tip steak and the dessert table was a glutton's paradise. The dinner was followed by a silent auction and many prizes were awarded to the lucky winners. The SARU wants to thank all who attended and those who volunteered to make this come together. And a very special THANK YOU to our sponsors and all who donated for the silent auction!!!!!!
