A week before the subdudes headline the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, they make a special appearance to benefit the Little Red Schoolhouse in Breckenridge.The second annual June Jam raises funds for the construction of a new preschool and day care center in Vista Point off of Wellington Road. A crew is currently framing the building, scheduled to open next summer.The facility will more than double Little Red’s capacity – from 30 kids to 80. It also will add a program from infants and toddlers.”Hundreds of kids in the county need day care,” said Michele Hart, vice president of Little Red’s board. “It will help alleviate the need and provide a warm, nurturing, loving environment that we hope to share with the community.”Currently 180 people are on Little Red’s wait list, said Alison Ernest, director.The June Jam is the biggest fundraiser for the new school. Last year it raised $6,000.In the last 18 months, Little Red has raised $1 million, including donation of the land for the building, but it still has about $250,000 to go, Ernest said.”We thought the subdudes would attract a wide range of people,” Hart said. “Everyone appreciates their music.”-Kimberly Nicoletti
