Thank you for success of Zack Peterson fundraiser

In early August, we made an appeal to the Grand County community to assist us with a fundraiser for Zack Peterson in his recovery efforts. A drawing was established and donations of lodging, timeshares, air travel, a ski package, and Rockies tickets were offered as prizes. Thank you to everyone who expressed their thoughts and prayers, shared their support through other venues, and who bought more than 500 tickets which resulted in a fund exceeding $6,000 for Zack. Jim and Suzi Peterson are extremely grateful for your support and donations and on their behalf, we offer many thanks to all the retailers and friends who advertised our posters and shared word of mouth to help promote this cause. Thank you to all our patrons who dined and drank and partied safely throughout the holiday weekend. We would like to extend special thanks to: Moose Stop Video who were our first volunteers to sell tickets Shelley Mattfeld on behalf of Devil’s Thumb Ranch who-donated a 2008-2009 Season Nordic Ski Pass Rustic Urn and owner Gina Knochenmus who sold tickets, won a prize and re-donated for a second drawing Diann Butler who sold $1,000+ in tickets and on behalf of Destinations West donated air travel Mary and Tom Goodfellow who also sold $1,000+ in tickets and donated their timeshare in Marco Island, Florida Maureen Delsing who donated her voice and sold $500+ in tickets during the first night of the benefit at DHL B&K Distributing who donated 4th row Rockies tickets Scott Hastings who announced prize winners No Name Band and all its worldwide members who rocked the house and played to a great crowd for three nights Sheila Brown and our terrific staff at the Daven Haven Lodge who promoted the fundraiser and provided excellent and tireless service throughout the event The Barnes FamilyCarey, Greg, Dustin, Patrick
