Give! Happy Hour at the Bristol Brew Pub Sunday


The 2016 Give! campaign is halfway over and we need your help to reach our year-end fundraising goal at Rocky Mountain Highway! Please make a tax-deductible donation – the first $4,600 contributed will be matched dollar-for-dollar by grants from our wonderful local business partners, Classic Homes, Faricy Boys Jeep & Chrysler, and Edelweiss German Restaurant, and the RMH Board of Directors. And don’t forget that everyone who donates $25 or more to Rocky Mountain Highway will be entitled to receive one free mixed drink at the 3 Hundred Days of Shine distillery in Monument!

You can also support our work by purchasing a pint of Give! Black Lager at the Bristol Brewing Pub at the Ivywild School or Old Chicago restaurants in Colorado Springs and Pueblo and designating a portion of the price to benefit Rocky Mountain Highway.

We’ll be set up at the Bristol Pub on Sunday, December 4 from 4-6 pm – please drop by to join us for a microbrew or two and free live music.

Finally, our last concert of the season is coming up on Sunday, December 11 at The Gold Room in downtown Colorado Springs – the Snow Ball, a Give! Benefit Concert for the Rocky Mountain Field Institute, the Shift Thrift Store and Rocky Mountain Highway.

This year’s Snow Ball features Chicago’s Cornmeal, a bluegrass jamband that seamlessly blends lightning fast tempos and impeccable harmonies into an unrivaled live performance. The Colorado College Bluegrass Ensemble opens and the music starts at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door, and can be purchased on-line at eventbrite.com or in person at Mountain Equipment Recyclers. The Black Rose Acoustic Society will also be offering discounted tickets for sale at their annual Christmas Concert on Friday, December 9 at the Black Forest Community Club, this year featuring The Instant Family (Charlie Hall, Phil Volan, Joleen Bell & Marianne Danehy)! Many thanks are due to our friends at The Mining Exchange for helping to make this special night possible!

Together, we can make a difference!

With gratitude,

Steve Harris, Executive Director
Rocky Mountain Highway
