Attending RGA fundraising events is a great way to support a cause you are passionate about while connecting with like-minded individuals and making a difference in your community. Government funding covers only 77% of the cost for Ray Graham Association to support people with disabilities. Each year, with the support of community leaders like you, we raise 1.8 million dollars. 87% of every dollar donated gives people the chance to make every day enjoyable and meaningful. Participating in our special events is a fun and social way to network with others who share your interests and values. Are you more of a hands-on person? Volunteers are always welcome for any event. If you’re interested in volunteering or have a question, email Donor Data Manager & Strategist Maddie Loper.

Upcoming Events

Sunflower Happy Hour
The Sunflower Happy Hour is from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, May 6 at Arrowhead Golf Club. Join us for a cocktail-fueled celebration of women and girls with disabilities. Space is limited, so buy your tickets today! With raffle prizes, opportunities to give back, and 88% of every dollar raised going directly to people with disabilities, there’s no better way to ring in springtime. At the end of the happy hour, we’ll have a short Kentucky Derby “watch party.” Feel free to don your fanciest fascinator or head-turning hat for a little added fun.
Golf Classic

The Robert F. Spahn Memorial Golf Classic at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, May 22 at the River Forest Country Club. We sold out in 2022, so reserve your spot today!
