That's not all partner!

The Bash is more than just boots and good times. It's a celebration of local youth, families, and volunteer Big Buddies throughout the Roaring Fork Valley whom we work with through our mentoring programs. This event typically raises over one-third of our annual operating budget and is critical to sustaining our four youth mentoring programs - offered at NO cost to the community.
