Richard Peck — The Tear Drop Project

The Tear-Drop Project for Richard Peck was a huge success, thanks to Mike Comer and so many other volunteers. The fund-raiser was held at the infield of the Santa Anita Race Track, which donated proceeds for one race to help Richard. There was a collection of vintage campers, gourmet food, live music and special events. But most important, was an outpouring of love and support for Richard and Nick. See more photos here.
