for Ralph event. Submitted photo.
This years' "Reach for Ralph" event went off with great success. Bridget Ulrich, Development and Communication Specialist at Hammer, said,"Everybody had a great time. It went really well!"

It was the fifth consecutive event of its kind. Last year, Hammer raised $75,000 and this year they are hoping to have surpassed last year. The event featured live jazz music, “nostalgic food” by SEVEN, over 100 silent auction items, nine live auction items, a classic car show, a vintage photo shoot (for the guests) and was hosted by KARE 11’s Rena Sarigianopoulos. There were about 400-450 attendees.

The amount of money that was raised is still being evaluated and will be in about two weeks.
