Letter: Thanks for Cozens event success


To the Editor:

The Taste of History on Saturday, Sept. 7 was a wildly fun and successful fundraiser for Cozens Ranch Museum in Fraser, and for the Grand County Historical Association.

We are grateful for two generous over-the-top Gold-Level Sponsors, C Lazy U Ranch, the Fraser River Valley Lions Club and the Rendezvous Foundation. Additionally, we could not run the Champagne Brunch without our stalwart infrastructure sponsors, Winter Park Resort, Winter Park Chamber, Greg Gallavan of Amaze’n Mazes and Michael Turner of Grand County TV 18. We appreciate the cooperation with the Town of Fraser, the Sky-Hi News and McConnell Printing and Design. Top Restaurants in the Fraser Valley donated delectable treats: Casa Mexico, Cooper Creek Square, DaVinci Restaurant, Deno’s Mountain Bistro, Drive By Pie, Fontenot’s Fresh Seafood and Grill, Hernando’s Pizza Pub, Mountain Rose Cafe, Rise and Shine Cafe, Rudi’s Deli, Showboat Catering, Smokin’ Moe’s BBQ, Strip & Tail, Wild Horse Catering, and our champagne donor, the new Winter Park Wine and Spirits.

Dozens more businesses and individuals — too many to list in this letter — donated energy, auction items, and gift certificates. Thank you all! We deeply appreciate our local artists who generously gave tremendous artworks to make our auction a success, including Ken Ball, Kate Christianson, Suzie Royce Cruse, Pem Dunn, Diane Fisher, Frank Loomis of Frank’s Log Furniture, Jean Gillis, Merilyn Hunter, Marie Johannes, Patty Madison, Kay Rhoads, Carolyn Sunderland, Karen Vance, Kent Van Meter, and Barbara Williams.

At the event, the fabulous “Tight Like That” musical trio played, Thank you! Not to say that we could have done the Taste of History Champagne Brunch without the many volunteers who set up and worked the event. Maximum accolades to Mary Amann, Francie de Vos, Betsy deVries, Mikey Gallavan, Ann Heckman, Sandra Naylor, and Carolyn Sunderland. And thank you to those who joined in on the days leading up to the event. Thank you to our lucky winners of door prizes, our kind purchasers of auction items, and to all our guests.

Staff and Board of Cozens Ranch Museum and the Grand County Historical Association
