Hip Hip HurRAH - After Hours is 10 and we threw ourselves a Birthday Bash to celebrate! 

Friends new and old, from near and afar came to help celebrate RAH's 10th Birthday Party on June 4th at the La Crescent Event Center. It was a great night of music, drinks, chicken-q, drinks and reminiscing about good memoRAHies. We had over 105 people come to help us celebrate a decade of doing good in the world.
Posters of our major accomplishments over the past decade adorned the room, including:
