RPNA co-managing partner, Nick Roxborough, was honored by United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles at the 20th Annual UCP Golf Tournament on June 6. More than 300 people attended the tournament and gala dinner that followed, raising approximately $400,000 for the organization.
As the former President of the Spastic Children’s Endowment Foundation, having served as the Chairman of the Board of Directors and currently winding up his term as Chairman of the Board of Governors, Nick has been deeply committed to supporting the UCP Family and their mission for the last 28 years.
A highlight of the evening was a special video tribute to Nick by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who acknowledged Nick’s accomplishments and impact on the city of Los Angeles:
“Today, I’m pleased to honor a very special leader and friend, a man who is not only instrumental to the work of UCPLA, but who exemplifies a spirit of service that makes Los Angeles such a special city.
Nick Roxborough has been a dedicated supporter of UCPLA since 1988. And over the decades, he has given his time, his talent, and his advocacy for an important cause. Whether it’s fighting for equal treatment
in the workplace or equal access to affordable housing, Nick always answers the call to lift up those who need the help, to reach out to those who need a hand, and to speak up for those who need a voice.
I’m so grateful for all that Nick has done for L.A., and it is a privilege to help you recognize his incredible accomplishments, which have made a tremendous difference in the lives of so many people.
You are a great friend Nick, thank you for all that you’ve done, and thanks to all of you for your tireless work to make our communities livable for all those who call it home.” — Eric Garcetti
UCP provides the finest and highest quality services and care to under privileged people with disabilities, allowing them to live life with dignity, surrounded by a loving community. The organization is one of the most frugal and efficient charities in California, with about 91¢ of every dollar raised going directly to client care, not to administration.
The partners and entire staff at RPNA congratulate Nick on this well-deserved honor.
“This honor could not go to a more deserving man,” says co-managing partner and long time friend Drew Pomerance
who presented the award to Nick. “We are thrilled that UCP has recognized what we see every day at RPNA: Nick’s unmatched dedication and passion, and a work ethic second to none.”
RPNA continues to pride itself in supporting and encouraging its employees and colleagues who find time to support those less fortunate but no less deserving.
