WildSnow is international, but we do live in Colorado… So let me play favorites for a moment and tout one of the best avalanche center fundraisers you can find anywhere.
Friends of the CAIC is proud to host the Fourth Annual CAIC Benefit Bash, a benefit for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC), on November 12th, 2011 at the Breckenridge Riverwalk Center. We invite you to help support the CAIC in their efforts. The evening will be filled with live music, an array of tasty food, incredible beer from New Belgium Brewery, and great people. We will be hosting another massive silent auction, while throwing door prizes to the crowd.
Purpose of the CAIC is to minimize the economic and human impact of snow avalanches on the recreation, tourism, and commerce industries. They succeed in achieving their purpose through a dual mission of forecasting and public education. The center operates on a limited budget and needs your support in order to continue this important work.
The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization created to support the CAIC, while contributing to avalanche awareness and education throughout the State of Colorado. They achieve this mission through donations, grants, and fundraising events.
If you think avalanche forecasting, education, and awareness is important in Colorado, then this party is for you. Tickets are available at www.friendsofcaic.org in advance for $30 and the day of for $35 at the Riverwalk Center. Your entrance fee includes one door prize ticket, two beer tickets, food, and entertainment from Green River Vibe.
