Rory is a Redlands native and has been involved in many aspects of small-town life. Growing up, he was active in the YMCA All American Youth Circus and is looking forward to bringing some of his acrobatic skills to the dance floor. He has volunteered with countless organizations and loves to donate his time and skills to worthwhile causes.
Rory currently runs Haden Events, a local catering company. His zeal for the arts is matched only by his passion for food and entertaining. You will often see Rory running around, but he always has a moment to ask how you’re doing, and he genuinely cares.
Although new to the symphonic crowd, he has quickly embraced the camaraderie of its many volunteers and looks forward to infusing some unique style into the Gala and the organization.
“As a Redlands native and a supporter of the arts, I feel it’s important to introduce a new generation to the amazing benefits the Redlands Symphony offers,” Rory says. “I want to be an ambassador for the Symphony and all the exceptional cultural programs our community provides.”
