Riverton Elko GM Superstore and The Star Hotel are excited to present the Riverton Home Town Hero Award for the rest of the boys’ basketball season. During half time, Riverton Elko will recognize someone in the community for going above and beyond what is asked of them. Riverton will present a $100 check to a local non-profit origination of the recipient’s choice as well as a $100 gift card to The Star Hotel.
Friday night’s recipient was Lisa Reed. Lisa has been married to Jake for over 17 years and has two girls, Sidney & Macey. She helps run their family business, Ruby Mountain Water. Lisa also has her own business as certified public accountant, specializing in tax and small business. She volunteers for many organizations, a few of which are the Boy & Girls Clubs of Elko, Elko County 4-H, Nevada Youth Soccer League, and one that is near and dear to her heart, Sweeties with Diabetes. Lisa’s youngest daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes one year ago. Lisa and her family recently attended the JDRF walk in Reno where their family raised almost $10,000 and their team raised $14,000. Lisa has chosen for us to donate $100.00 to Boys & Girls Club of Elko, but their 2 businesses will also match this with $100 to Elko County 4-H and NV Youth Soccer.
We would like to thank Lisa for all that she does!
