Nearly 1,000 people gathered at Seward Park on June 28 for the 24th annual Walk for Rice fundraiser to benefit the Asian Counseling & Referral Service food bank. With 814 registered participants, ACRS raised $182,486 with some pledges still uncounted, and was on target to meet its $200,000 goal. In addition, 2,850 pounds of food was donated to the food bank.
