This event will raise funds to purchase arts and education resources for our elementary school children -- 88% whom reside in the City of Rochester. RA's daily attendance rate is 95% and contributions make a difference in their educational experience, 

The evening will include a silent auction, a student guided tour, mission moment, awards, faculty features, sponsor highlights and more!

We are pleased to announce that we will be honoring Dr. Marilynn Patterson Grant and the
Nichols Construction Team during this event.


Dr. Marilynn Patterson Grant, a former RA Board member, will receive the Edward and Barbara Cozine Individual Award and is being recognized for helping to make RA a school in which students strive and thrive each day. Through her service on the Board, she shared her exceptional educational experience, incredible intellect, and compassionate heart with our school.

The Nichols Construction Team will receive the Community Partner Award for ensuring that our
children have a safe and beautiful facility in which to learn. Our students love to come to school
each day in an extraordinary school environment, and the Nichols Construction Team went “above and beyond” to make that happen.
