Community helps Grand Kids Fall Festival

Grand Kids would like to express our appreciation to everyone that helped to make our 10th annual Fall Festival fundraiser a success. We held the event at Grand Park for the 2nd year in a row and cannot say thank you enough to Clark Lipscomb, Grand Park, Winter Park Market and Colorado Adventure Park. The event would not have been possible without their donation of the venue, raffle prize, tractor, hay, bouncy castle, beer, apples and much, much more. For the first time in years we held a silent auction as part of the event; this was a resounding success due to the fantastic items donated. For some of those items we would like to thank: Powder Addiction CatSkiing, Vandelaar Family, Beaver Village Condominiums, Power World Sports, Snow Mountain Ranch/YMCA of the Rockies, Fraser Valley Metropolitan Rec. District, Granby Ranch and A Maze N Mazes. We would also like to thank , Stephan Petersen, Amissa Kitzberger and Rachel Rayburn who donated their time and talents in making items for the auction.The money raised allows our organization to provide enhanced educational and co-curricular programs to the children enrolled at Grand Kids. The support of the following sponsors is truly gratifying: Real Estate of Winter Park, Town of Winter Park, Hydro Construction Co., Smokin’ Moe’s Ribhouse and Saloon, Gelman & Norberg, LLC, Conroy Excavating, Fraser Medical Clinic, JVA, Handymatt, LLC, East Grand Fire Department, Mountain Park Concrete, Town of Fraser, Sky Hi Daily News, Wild Horse Catering Company, McConnell Printing, Channel 17, Boxwell Construction, Dailey Insurance Agency, Day and Associates PC, Fraser Valley Ace Hardware, Gasthaus Eichler Hotel and Restaurant, Hernando’s Pizza & Pasta, Mountain Moon Yoga, Rocky Mountain Moonshine, The Seven Sisters, Winding River Resort, Winter Park Dental, Subway, Rudi’s Deli, McDonald’s of Winter Park, Grand Mountain Bank, The Lions Club, Vacations Inc., Ziggy’s Donuts, Mountain Parks Electric, City Market, Brian Johnston and Frederike Hofstra.We would like to say a HUGE thank you to all the parent volunteers who spend countless hours putting together and staffing the event. Finally, without the support of the community we wouldn’t be able to host this event year after year; Thank You!Heather GreenPresident of the Board, Grand Kids
