Four of Thunder River Theatre Co.s building founders believe that it is important for TRTC to open their new theatre debt-free. To that end local philanthropist Jim Calaway, Alpine Bank CEO Bob Young, TRTC Board Member Dick Stephenson, and the Kruidenier Charitable Foundation teamed up and pledged an additional $50,000 each. The goal behind their additional pledges is a simple one establish a challenge grant for TRTC to take to the community, have it matched, and open debt free. TRTC needs to raise approximately $400,000 to pay for everything, including land and all the expenses associated with opening this facility. This generous $200,000 challenge needs to be matched by the community by April 1, 2006. Starting today, every dollar donated to TRTC is really worth $2. There are several ways to donate and have your name forever associated with this beautiful building. Visit or call 970-309-5398 for even more information.
