Jerri Bracamonte is the city’s Executive Assistant by day and volunteers with Mueller on the Havasu Advisory Committee – which oversees local activities and fundraising efforts.says Bracamonte. “This year the Lake Havasu City Department Reps stepped up and succeeded in increasing participation by adding a couple of new incentives. One incentive included a drawing to have the City Manager, Charlie Cassens, do their job for an 8-hour shift. While the winner doesn’t get the day off, they do get to show him what it is like to work in their shoes for a day.” says Bracamonte. City Employees have been donating to RCUW for over 10 years. Year-to-date contributions of $26,923 reflect 7% of Havasu’s $350,000 goal.
