Steamboat CycleART raises funds for Trails
The inaugural Steamboat CycleArt auction was a spinning success. The event was hosted on June 17th at the Depot Art Center. With over 120 in attendance, attendees were able to bid on eighteen silent auction and five live auction items. The auction items included beautiful bike-inspired artwork by local artists, as well as a new Niner Mountain Bike. Proceeds benefited Bike Town USA and the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund (TMEF). The TMEF was established at the Yampa Valley Community Foundation and aims to take on the responsibility of maintaining the new trails being created with the backing of millions of dollars in lodging tax funds. The CycleART event raised $3,671.00 for the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund. The TMEF has a goal to generate $1,000,000 in the next ten years.
