WHAT: "One Year Later" will be a community event that looks back at April 16th, 2011, and pays tribute to a community that has rebuilt itself over the past year. Kris Weiss, Director of Marketing for Ray Price will provide the opening address for special tribute program, as well as state and local representatives will be there with a slide show. This will be followed by celebrations with entertainment and food.
WHEN: The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Ray Price, Inc. on South Saunders Street -- just 5 days after the official one-year mark of the tornado touching down.
WHERE: Ray Price, Inc., at 1126 South Saunders Street., Raleigh, NC.
WHY: "Here at Ray Price, Inc., we were fortunate, but not all of our neighbors were," said Ray Price. "Our goal is to recognize what we collectively went through. There were people who lost their lives and their homes in nearby communities (Stony Brook and Caraleigh), and many of our own neighbors lost their businesses."
