RCC_ReggieOn Friday, October 2, 2015, over 650 supporters attended the “Reggie’s” 20th Anniversary Gala. Governor Charlie Baker served as the honorary event chair, Mayor Marty Walsh joined us to formally congratulate our award recipients, and over $150,000 was raised for the Bob McIntyre and Frank Mooney Endowment. The awards ceremony was followed by a performance by The Manhattans, and the evening ended with guests dancing to hit music, provided by a DJ. Many thanks to those of you who attended and supported this milestone event!
