Iron Mountain Hot Springs hosts LIFT-UP benefit

The Iron Mountain Hot Springs and Roaring Fork Young Professionals are teaming up on Friday, Nov. 20, for a Benefit on the Riverbank for LIFT-UP. From 6 p.m. to midnight, pool guests can soak in Glenwood’s newest hot springs, listen to music and enjoy food and drink specials. It’s all for a good cause: to help LIFT-UP assist as many people as possible during the upcoming holiday season.

Guests can save $5 on admission and pay just $10 by bringing at least one nonperishable food item for the LIFT-UP food pantries. Without a food donation, admission is $15, $5 of which goes to the nonprofit.

“The holidays are right around the corner, and this is when LIFT-UP needs our help the most,” said Bret Pfost, general manager for the Iron Mountain Hot Springs.

Attendees can try out all 16 of the hot springs soaking pools, with temperatures ranging from 99 to 108°F, plus the freshwater family pool and jetted spa during the event. DJs Ryno and Altizzi from Audio Entertainment will provide the pool party atmosphere with tunes ranging from ’80s to pop music to country, with a few nostalgic songs mixed in.

The Sopris Café will offer hot peppermint mocha and well drinks for $5, plus Coors Light and Blue Moon on tap and glasses of wine for $4. Alcohol will be served until 10 p.m. A special “Thanksgiving in Your Mouth” flatbread pizza, with brie cheese, cranberries, pecans and basil, will be available for $5. Guests can register to win day passes for the Iron Mountain Hot Springs at the café, and the DJs will announce winners on the hour all night.

“This is the first time we’ve hosted this type of event, but we’re planning more for next spring and summer,” Pfost added.

LIFT-UP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing humanitarian assistance in the communities it serves, with food pantries in Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, Rifle and Parachute.
