2014 Friend of the Year – Vickii WaltersFriends of RMHC - Vickii Walters

Each year, RMHC of Tampa Bay honors an individual or company who has made a significant impact on our organization.

Vickii Walters has been a long-standing friend and generous donor for the past fifteen years. Vickii has been the creative force behind the Storybook Ball since its inception, and has donated back half of her event production fee for each of those years. She has made each gala come to life through her hands-on talents and that of her crew and husband Victor.

Vickii has trained us well and we feel confident that we are ready to take the next steps that will ensure our ball continues to dazzle our guests and raise crucial funds for the operation of our four houses.
