RHISP Board of Directors Adds New Talent! October 1st, 2011

Management and fundraising for the RHI Sports Program is a year-round activity and is performed by a cadre of unpaid volunteers who believe in the opportunities provided by the RHI Sports Program.


The entire board meets every other month, with officers meeting every month. Members volunteer at sporting events, and take part in the development of many kinds of fundraising efforts–the largest of which is the planning and execution of the Gala each year.
