Thank You for Your Support of Richmond’s ‘Big Fish’

Thank You for Your Support

We Celebrated 25 Years of Guillermo the Golden Trout

We felt the love at our Go Fish! community party the other week. Thank you to everyone who showed up in support our first in-person fundraiser since the pandemic. We met our fundraising goals and had a great time doing it!

Special thanks to artist Andrée Singer Thompson, Mayor Eduardo Martinez, and former Mayor Rosemary Corbin, who spoke and reminded us of the power of artworks such as Guillermo the Golden Trout to express the ideas and vitality of our community.
