HCCA’s first annual High Country Farm to Table Dinner, a Save Red Lady Campaign benefit, held last week, proved to be an enormous success thanks to some very special sponsors, generous donors, our very gracious guests, an incredibly beautiful location, awesome volunteers, super delicious food and absolutely amazing weather. Keep an eye on our events page for the next one!

Sincerest thanks to our sponsors: Elevation Beer, Mountain Spirits Liquor, Big B’s, Town of Mt CB, Children’s Discovery Ranch, RMBL, Donna Walker, First Ascent Coffee Roasters, Mountain Roots Food Project and Rain Crow Farm for providing the essentials. An outstanding silent auction was made possible by the generosity of: Crested Butte Film Festival, Townie Books, Montanya Rum, Big B’s Juices and Hard Cider, Mountain Oven Bakery, CB Nordic, Stone Cottage Winery, Studio 3, Chopwood Mercantile, Monica Ariowitsch and Suzanne Pierson. Our volunteers: musicians Allen Smith and Zach Wolfe, Kate Wessels, Honeydew Murray, Dan Oliver, Ann Gibson, Hilary Henry, Sandy Shea, Claire Karban, Alli Melton, Richard Forbes, Jack Mangan, Brian Smith, Kristen Osbourne and our Red Lady, Steph White were superb in their manner and efforts, all the while wearing smiles and the glow of contributing their time and energy to this important cause.

Our deepest gratitude and heartfelt thanks go to Chris Sullivan and the Mountain Oven Bakery crew, and our local farmers, for the most beautiful and delicious food- locally grown and lovingly prepared, sourced from Thistle Whistle Farm, Rain Crow Farm, Weathervane Farm, Homestead Meats, Twisted Root Farm, Dig In It, and Delicious Orchards.

Our 2015 Save Red Lady Campaign is well on the way to reaching its fundraising goal of $50,000 to fund our important work to keep Red Lady mine-free while proactively addressing the legacy of acid mine drainage in our watershed.  To help us reach that goal, click HERE to make your contribution now.
