Local Philanthropist Receives Recognition

The second annual Night at the Ranch fundraiser benefiting the Boys & Girls Club drew more than 250 guests and co-chairs Steve Blue and Leif Hanson reported that over $150,000 was raised last month.

Honoree Hans LaRoche, a 12-year club employee, inspired those in attendance with his passion for his role as the club athletic director.

“Steve and Leif scored another home-run and we couldn’t be more grateful. The money that was raised will touch so many of our kid’s lives through programs we might not otherwise have been able to offer,” said Executive Director Pam Estes.
