DooWop Denny launches summer season with FDRD

Daily News staff report

The Summit County Seniors and the Summit Mountain Biking group are hosting the third annual Friends of the Dillon Ranger District Fundraiser Party on June 20 at the Summit County Senior and Community Center in Frisco near the County Commons building.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with the fresh sounds of Mountain Breeze (Carol and Dave Wedgwood) entertaining during cocktail hour, followed by dancing with DooWop Denny from 7-9 p.m.

Friends of the Dillon Ranger District is providing ice, ice water, napkins, small paper plates and cups for the water and drinks. Participants should bring their own drinks and appetizers and desserts to share.

Both the Summit Seniors and Summit Mountain Biking club have adopted a Forest Service trial for maintenance this summer through the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District nonprofit that helps the U.S. Forest Service accomplish on-the-ground and field work to improve the national forest.

“In addition to the hours of physical volunteer labor that our members will provide to move rocks and dirt, dollars are also needed to plan these projects and buy necessary materials, hence the purpose of this fundraiser,” program manager Sarah Slaton wrote in the latest newsletter.

Tickets cost $20 per person with tables of eight available and encouraged to fill. The plan is to have 18 tables or 144 attendees. It’s expected to sell out quickly.

Purchase tickets from Bonnie Guthrie by calling (970) 468-0405, email or mailing P.O. Box 1981, Silverthorne, CO 80498.

Checks should be made payable to the Summit County Seniors with “FDRD Fundraiser” in the memo line. Credit cards cannot be accepted. The ticket price is tax-deductible as a charitable donation to FDRD.
