Plea for the Return of Cherished Super Bowl Ring Lost in Gilbert


Christopher Washington, a retired NFL player with a storied career that includes a stint with the San Francisco 49ers and a victory in the 1989 Super Bowl, has issued a heartfelt plea for the return of his cherished championship ring.

Washington suspects the treasured item was lost while he was running errands in Gilbert, Arizona, earlier this month. Despite retracing his steps alongside his wife, the ring remains missing, sparking a hope that a good Samaritan might come across it and understand its immense personal value.

The ring, a symbol of Washington's journey through football from his youth to the professional leagues, is irreplaceable to him and his family. They are offering a reward for its return, emphasizing that its significance far surpasses any monetary value.

Washington's appeal is directed to anyone who may find the ring at several specified locations in Gilbert, encouraging them to reach out via email @ [email protected] to facilitate its return.

Gilbert's Spring Concert Series Finale: An Evening with Americana Sensations Dorsten

The Gilbert Spring Concert Series is poised for its grand finale on March 28, featuring the award-winning folk-rock/Americana ensemble, Dorsten.

The group, a brother-sister duo, has carved a niche for themselves in the music industry, drawing inspiration from acclaimed artists such as Florence + The Machine, The Lumineers, and Kaleo.

Their collaborative dynamics, with Sophie Dorsten's entrancing vocals and Alex Dorsten's instrumental prowess, have earned them a place alongside national touring acts and prominent music festivals.

As the Water Tower Plaza undergoes renovations, this season's concert series has found a new home in the Heritage Marketplace's greenspace, offering a picturesque backdrop for Dorsten's performance.

Attendees are invited to enjoy this free event from 6:30-8:30 p.m., bringing along blankets or lawn chairs for comfort. The concert not only promises an evening of exceptional music but also serves as a testament to Gilbert's commitment to fostering a rich cultural and artistic community.
