This years event will be a very special one as it marks the 25th Anniversary of the Rivera Memorial Foundation, also known as Rivera & Hughes Memorial Park Committee. Through all the trials and tribulations during the 25 year journey, the Rivera Memorial Foundation is still running strong. For that, I give thanks to God first, and then all the volunteer, staff, the New Opportunities Inc., and most important past and present supporters. We extend a very special invitation to all who have been in one way or another a part of the Rivera Memorial Foundation as a participant, supporter, volunteer, committee member or staff to come and join us to give a long waiting and well deserving recognition to our Pioneer Awardees, as well as, our distinguished Community Service and Inspirational Educator Award honorees.

   Tickets can be purchased at our website, or stop by our office at 186 Cherry Street, Waterbury, CT. If you have any questions or want to purchase an ad in our program booklet your can email Jessica Ocasio at for more information.
