Grand County Pet Pals shared that it raised $25,000 for the animal shelter and Grand County Rural Health Network received more than $14,000 to support its various health care programs, such as vouchers for mental health care.

Through Grand County Gives, the local arm of Colorado Gives, Middle Park Medical Foundation and the Grand Lake Area Historical Society will receive bonus money on top of their donations after winning a raffle for the funds.
