The blustery weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of nearly 200 supporters who converged on the ballroom at Old Ranch Country Club to honor Rick Rackers 62nd Woman of the Year, Tammy Newland.
Ricker Rackers, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, is an auxiliary of the Assistance League of Long Beach.
