Silverthorne party rewards Clean-Up Day participants

SILVERTHORNE – Residents and companies planning on participating in the annual Town Clean-Up Day in Silverthorne Saturday will be rewarded with a $5 discount on their End of Spring Fling tickets so they can celebrate after a long day’s work.Clean-Up Day will be from from 8 a.m. to noon. The Spring Fling will be from 6-10 p.m. at the Silverthorne Pavilion.The End of Spring Fling is a second annual beach party that kicks off the summer as guests dress up in their favorite beachwear, dine on a tropical buffet and compete for great prizes in contests for limbo, hula and best outfit.One guest will win a trip for two to a sunny, surprise location. “What a great way to kick off the summer,” said Maggie Butler, pavilion coordinator.”After spending a day helping to clean up the town, folks are invited to relax and reward themselves at a tropical beach party. This event is especially timely for teachers who are wrapping up the school year, parents and neighbors, or businesses looking to reward employees or clients. We have so many great prizes, from golf outings to vacations,” Butler said.The Spring Fling was established last year as an annual event dedicated to raising funds to improve the Silverthorne Pavilion’s performing arts capabilities.Last year, more than 20 local business owners used the Spring Fling as a easy and inexpensive gift to reward their employees and clients while helping raise almost $2,000 to help purchase microphones.This year’s event is dedicated as a fundraiser to assist with the purchase of an attractive, permanent outdoor marquee to help advertise pavilion productions.Many local nonprofits rely on using the Silverthorne Pavilion for free to stage low-cost productions for the community.When pavilion audience members have been surveyed as to how they learned about a production at the pavilion, almost 10 percent responded that they saw it listed on the current, temporary banner at the corner of Highway 9 and the pavilion entrance.Based on designs approved by the town’s community development citizen’s board, a permanent marquee sign is estimated to cost around $25,000.Mountain Vista Bed and Breakfast owner Sandy Ruggaber has donated $1,000 in the name of her late husband, Robert F. Ruggaber.The town is also seeking grant support. All revenues raised from the Spring Fling will be protected in an account earmarked specifically to raise funds for the marquee project, Butler said.A dinner ticket is regularly priced at $25. Aside from the Clean-Up Day discount (which requires a hand stamp), the pavilion is offering a $20 discount for tables of eight or more.A nondinner ticket is available for $15.Tickets may be purchased by credit card over the phone by calling (970) 262-7370.
