For Richmond had a highly active year in 2015 that includes preparing more than 500 local residents for construction trade careers, fighting for local hiring in connection with the massive upcoming Berkeley Global Campus project, helping revitalize a local park and also boosting local opportunities in youth education.

To celebrate last year’s achievements and to discuss what’s to come this year, the nonprofit is holding a free Community Reception and Dinner at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, at Lovonya DeJean Middle School in Richmond.

“We’re gathering the community together, with our compliments, to highlight our recent work in 2015 and upcoming initiatives in 2016,” said Kathy Chouteau, the nonprofit’s spokeswoman.

About 400 people are expected to attend, Chouteau said.

This year’s dinner will include a testimonial from Kennedy High student Elexis Webster, who received sponsorship from the organization in 2015 and who will participate in For Richmond’s College Connection Program this summer.

For more information about the Community Reception & Dinner on Jan. 14, contact Executive Director Kyra Worthy at (510) 260-0290 or email kyra@4richmond.org.
