It was RICF's pleasure to host Rep. Edgar Gonzalez, Jr. to our Hawthorne Clinic. Executive Director Paul Coronado and Senior Caseworker, Petra Villa, received Rep. Gonzalez, along with Hawthorne Race Course General Manager, Tim Carey, Lisa Duarte, Katia Orozco and Jack Kelly.
When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.
