Summer is wrapping up, and kids head back to school today. We are rolling into the fall season, and the VBR Foundation is asking for your help as we prepare for two fundraising events. Our golf tournament and holiday party are coming up before the end of the year.

If you have something that you could donate to our silent auction, let us know. Please fill out the attached  Donation Form   and return it to mike@vbr.net . These donations will help us achieve our mission “ To assist the community and association members with need-based financial assistance, not-for-profit support, education, and disaster relief .”

Our silent auctions have helped us give away $37,000 in 2018 to support our community, association members, and nonprofits needing financial assistance. Our Holiday Party raises funds specifically for the VBRF scholarship program, which awarded $24,000 to Eagle County students in 2019! Your generosity is vital to our efforts.

Thank you,
Erica Kirk
