Fundraiser set for Colorado Avalanche Information Center

The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center will host the eighth annual fundraiser for the center on Nov. 14 in Breckenridge.

Mountain enthusiasts throughout the state and those visiting from elsewhere are invited to rally to support the Colorado Avalanche Information Center in its continued efforts of avalanche forecasting and education.

“With winter ramping up, it is important that the CAIC continues to receive support so it can provide valuable information for those venturing into the backcountry,” Aaron Carlson, executive director for the Friends of the CAIC, said in a prepared statement “The Benefit Bash continues to be our most critical fundraising event.”

This winter kick-off party features live music from Missed the Boat and beer from Colorado’s New Belgium Brewery. There will be silent and live auctions, thousands of dollars worth of door prizes and giveaways.

Tickets are available for purchase for $40 at Advanced purchases are recommended as this event sells out every year. Entrance fee includes one door prize ticket, two beer tickets, dinner, access to the silent auction and live music.
