ORE is putting on the first annual Sustainaball!! This is a fundraiser for the non-profit and will be a silent and live auction with a murder mystery dinner theme! This night will be full of fun as they auction off silent auction items from local businesses who have generously donated their time and money to make ORE the organization it is today. The live auction will have items like luxurious vacations to Costa Rica with air fare included, a week’s stay in a tree house community in Costa Rica and in a local one up Elk Basin. There is also a guided historical day tour of Gunnison county from our favorite history professor Duane L. Vandenbusche. Other items that will be auctioned off are golf trips on Dos Rios and stays in the only B&B in Gunnison, a guided mountain bike ride with a renound rider from the valley, Yoga on top of Painter Boy lift and much more! This night will be full of awesome costumes and a live performance of a skit of the murder mystery. This will be held on August 9th at CBMR starting at 6PM. All proceeds from ticket sales and auctions go to the non-profit ORE for funding on current and future projects and programs!
Helping and watching the process it takes to put on a major fundraiser like this has taught me a lot! There is a lot of input with the board of directors and the major members of the community who invest their time to ORE to make it an awesome sustainable organization. I have learned all of the ins and outs of putting on such a big event. All of the helping hands make a difference and with all of the hard work of the board of directors, us interns and the great people who run Ore, this event will be such a success!!
