Snowmass Village, Colo.—Feb. 18, 2019—This year, the Rotary Club of Snowmass Village awarded grants to nineteen Roaring Fork Valley organizations. In total, the Rotary donated $38,000 to a variety of local non-profits including The Buddy Program, Challenge Aspen, Aspen Strong, Roaring Fork Conservancy and more.
Funds for the grants were raised at the Rotary’s annual fundraiser, the Snowmass Wine Festival, that is held every September in collaboration with the Snowmass Balloon Festival and the Town of Snowmass Village.
Many of the grants will go towards assisting and supporting the wide-range of benefits that local non-profits provide for the Valley. From youth programming and mentorship to environmental education and mental health support, the grants wish to aid the Roaring Fork Valley’s multi-faceted community.
“We are a small but mighty Rotary Club that, along with Aspen, raises the most funds in our Rotary District. The funds are distributed back to our local non-profits and other vocational charities,” says Julie Ann Woods, president, Rotary Club of Snowmass Village.
