House of Ruth Maryland’s 16th Annual Spring Luncheon features special guest Victor Rivas Rivers. A veteran film star, best-selling author, renowned advocate for violence prevention, and the first Cuban-born football player to land a tryout with the Miami Dolphins, Victor Rivas Rivers has achieved extraordinary success in numerous arenas. But given his violent upbringing, few of those achievements were ever likely. If not for a handful of individuals who were willing to take a stand on his behalf, Rivers doubts he would be alive today. Reserve your table or tickets now to hear his compelling story of triumph over trauma.
