Board of Visitors Flower Girls lend a hand at Ryan House

Flower Girls

The Board of Visitors Flower Girls learned first-hand what it means to give back to the community by spending time recently at The Board of Visitors Ryan House, a pediatric respite and palliative care facility.

The Flower Girls were able to interact with patients and learned about Ryan Cottor, the inspiration behind The Board of Visitors Ryan House.

“The event at The Board of Visitors Ryan House helps those in need and educates the young women selected to be Flower Girls for our Annual Charity Ball about The Board of Visitors commitment to serving the most vulnerable in our community,” said Sydney Fox, chairman of The Board of Visitors.

Established in 1908, The Board of Visitors is the oldest charitable organization in Arizona. Its members volunteer to raise funds to serve the healthcare needs of women, children and the elderly.

The BOV has donated more than $17 million to local charities to help improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in the community.
