THANK YOU for making our Annual Event & Fundraiser a smashing success!

To all our wonderful supporters:

THANK YOU for your generous and ongoing support of the Central Colorado Conservancy! With your help we raised nearly $33,000 at our Annual Event and Fundraiser on September 29 at Hutchinson Ranch. This funding provides valuable support to our programs and projects.

Our theme this year was HOME GROWN and we could not be more appreciative of the support we received from our friends and neighbors who call Central Colorado home.

Together we: Celebrated the lands and waters that provide ecological, social, and economic benefit to our community; Invested, through the incredible generosity of our event sponsors, auction donors, and attendees, in our work to ensure everyone has a chance to experience the place we love and live; and came together to Conserve this special place we call home.

We had such a wonderful evening with the help of Hutchinson Ranch, Kalamatapit Catering, Tenderfoot Farm, Elevation Beer Company, Vino Salida, Ellen’s Flowers, musician Tricia Parish, and auctioneer Rylie Behr. Plus, our fantastic volunteers helped us set up and clean up!

Thank you to Dan Gibbs, executive director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, for his wonderful keynote address.
