Breckenridge Dining Passports
The Breckenridge Restaurant Association (BRA) is offering spring dining specials at participating restaurants as a fundraiser for its scholarship program. In 2013 alone, the BRA awarded about $9,000 in scholarships to local high school students. In order to replenish this fund, the $10 donation for the passports will go toward the scholarship program. This also allows the BRA to support other community events and programs, including the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, the Dew Tour, various concerts and events, customer service training and the culinary kitchen at Colorado Mountain College. Breckenridge Dining Passports are each valid for two people and get specials valid now through June 13. Passports are available at the Breckenridge Welcome Center and participating restaurants.
