NORTH RIVERSIDE – Helping Hand Center celebrated its 60th birthday with their 30th annual Golf Outing July 21 at the Riverside Golf Club.

In addition to golf, participants also enjoyed games and a chance to win prizes, including a new car. Cocktails and dinner awaited golfers after finishing 18 holes, as well as entertainment and a live auction.

The event raised over $47,000.
