This year’s annual convention of the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, a grassroots organization representing family farmers and ranchers in Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming, will feature the Harvest Moon Gala, a fundraiser for the RMFU Foundation. The event, on Friday evening, November 19, at the Colorado Springs Doubletree Hotel, will include dinner, games, an auction and a grand prize drawing for a week at a condo in Mazatlan.
The RMFU Foundation is a 501c3 that offers educational programs to not only our members but a broad base of interested people in the Rocky Mountain region,” said RMFU Executive Director Ben Rainbolt. “In these tough economic times, an event like the gala gives people a light-hearted way to make their charitable contributions. We have put together a great selection of prizes and auction items, thanks to the generosity of members and friends.”
Recent Foundation programs include summer leadership camps for school-age members, a Fellows training program for young adults that concluded with a visit to Washington, D.C., and community programs presented in two dozen Colorado counties to provide information on ballot initiatives.
The Harvest Moon Gala is a ticketed event. For more information, call 303.752.5800.
