At the IMAGINE fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 16, our community came out in full force to support three local nonprofits dedicated to children's health, well-being, and safety: River Bridge Regional Center, Early Childhood Network and Cooking Matters. Local celebrity chef Susie Jimenez provided the delicious menu, The Starlettes got everyone dancing, wine and beer were enjoyed, and great deals were grabbed up on the silent auction tables. Numerous caring donors, sponsors and volunteers contributed to create a fantastic evening for more than 300 guests. IMAGINE raised more than $20,000, funds which will go towards supporting healthy, safe and well-cared-for children. We wish to sincerely thank our many wonderful volunteers who made this success possible, as well as the following generous individuals and businesses: Land Rover Roaring Fork, Sopris Liquor & Wine, ANB Bank, Bishop Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning, Costco, El Jebeverage, Epicurious Fine Foods, The Floral Boutique, Rifle Brewing Co., Roaring Fork Liquors, Shamrock Foods, White River Bar & Grill, and of course Susie Jimenez with her catering company Spice It Up.Within a warm, child-friendly environment, River Bridge provides hope and healing to neglected and abused children and their families through counseling, advocacy and investigation services. Early Childhood Network promotes the availability of quality, affordable early childhood education, and provides child care information and resources. Cooking Matters connects children in need with nutritious food and teaches families how to cook healthy and affordable meals. We are thrilled and grateful to be a part of this very special and caring community.Sincerely,Blythe Chapman, River Bridge Regional CenterJonathan Godes, Early Childhood NetworkCooking Matters - No Child Hungry
