Bright Future Foundation hosts fundraising dinner in Beaver Creek Aug. 8

BEAVER CREEK — Join the Vail Valley’s Bright Future Foundation and the Beaver Creek Resort Company for a special fundraising dinner and auction on Aug. 8 at Splendido at the Chateau. All proceeds from the evening go toward funding for Bright Future Foundation programs. The event includes gourmet cuisine paired with exceptional wines and a semi-silent auction with prizes that can make many travel dreams come true.

“This fundraising event is truly special to us; we are so grateful to have such a supportive community,” said Sheri Mintz, executive director at Bright Future Foundation. “With the amazing food and wine paired with Splendido’s intimate atmosphere, this is sure to be a successful event for the Bright Future Foundation.”

The dinner will consist of a four-course meal and wines prepared by Splendido at the Chateau’s Executive Chef David Walford. Additionally, a special four-course semi-silent auction will take place during dinner. Items to be auctioned include a week’s stay on an island south of Brazil with up to 14 friends; a ski vacation in Hokkaido, Japan; a Manor Vail parking pass; a NASCAR VIP experience; and an amazing five-night wine and all-inclusive golf holiday at La Estancia de Cafayate in Salta, Argentina.

“With international vacations to once-in-a-lifetime experiential opportunities, I look forward to some spirited bidding and a great turn out for the Bright Future Foundation’s annual fundraising dinner,” said Lissa Tyler, vice president of the Bright Future Foundation’s board of directors.
