Two benefits were held over the weekend for LIFT-UP, which operates seven food pantries from Parachute to Aspen.

Residents donated 270 pounds of turkey for LIFT-UP during Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s second annual Turkey Tram-a-Ganza.

Guests who donated turkeys were registered to win prizes. Dorothy Snearly of Glenwood won Funday passes; Leslie Reece of New Castle won an Annual Thrill Pass to the park; and Kathy Thissen of Glenwood Springs won day passes for the Iron Mountain Hot Springs.

At Iron Mountain Hot Springs, people attended an event coordinated by the Roaring Fork Young Professionals that collected 544 donated food items.
