A Night at the Riviera: Sign Up Parties

We had so much fun planning a Night at the Riviera, we thought, “Why stop with just one party?” So, this year we are introducing sign up parties to take place after the Night at the Riviera. Numerous congregants have offered their homes, time and money to host various parties that you can sign up to attend. 100% of the money that you donate to attend these parties goes to WJC. The concept is simple – take a sneak peak at the parties below and choose which ones you’d like to attend. Do you need to know anyone hosting the party in order to sign up? Nope! Do you need to know anyone else attending the party? Nope! This is your chance to meet new people while partaking in an activity that you love, would like to try or just sounds like fun. Sign up sheets will be available at the Night at the Riviera. There are a limited number of spots for each party so get there early to make sure you sign up for the parties you want to attend before they fill up.
