On Thursday, January 9, 2020 we honored the late Ms. Fran Ricketts and Mr. Gerald (J.J.) Smith at our annual “An Evening with Our Community Stars’ event. More than 120 people joined us at the Shenandoah Valley Golf Club to celebrate our honorees legacies of giving back with an entertaining evening of music, food, drinks, and tributes.
It was an incredible evening as Dr. Byron Brill, Dr. Tracy Fitzsimmons, Mr. Stuart Williams and Mr. Phil Glaize delivered incredible tributes to Mr. Smith, and the Community Foundation of the Northern Shenandoah Valley thanks them wholeheartedly for their contributions to this event. One of the evening’s other highlights was watching the moving tribute video the Community Foundation produced to honor the legacy of service provided to C-CAP and the entire community by the late Ms. Fran Ricketts.
We’d also like to thank Barry Lee, from 92.5 WINC-FM for lending his talents to serve as our Master of Master of Ceremonies.
“An Evening with Our Community Stars” supports our annual campaign, ensuring the Community Foundation of the Northern Shenandoah Valley can continue to grow its programs supporting charitable giving and nonprofits in the Northern Shenandoah Valley.
