“What a fun time” was mentioned by many, as the United Way of Northern California held its annual Fund Raising “Celebrity Waiters Dinner and Auction” at the Riverview Country Club. With a long list of celebrities from the Redding business, professional, and service community, including our own Doni and Kelly, over 300 guests enjoyed an evening of laughs, challenges and good auction opportunities with prizes and gifts ranging from a weekend of golf to a vacation resort holiday on the coast. One of the highlights was a 9-minute run by newsman Mike Mangas, who ran around the first hole and back in the dark in just over 9 minutes, and of course the great “rap dance” by our conservative Weather Man…guess who? With Chita Johnson helping “DJs” Billy and Patrick, this was a great Redding event. Hats off to the organizers, and to all the organizations that work on a daily basis to assist the needy in Northern California. A great time for all.
