Anonymous donor to help fire victims

AVON – An anonymous donor will boost the total from a Thursday fund-raiser for victims of a Monday fire that destroyed a condominium building.
The fund-raiser for the fire victims is tonight at the Northside Coffee and Kitchen in Avon starting at 5 p.m. Cost for the spaghetti dinner event is $10 at the door, and people are welcome to donate more.
Vail attorney Nancy Adam Thursday sent the Vail Daily an e-mail stating that one of her clients will contribute $1 for every $2 raised this evening, up to a maximum of $5,000.
The May 28 fire at the Chambertin condominiums destroyed that complex and badly damaged at least one neighboring building. There were no serious injuries, but residents lost everything in the blaze – one victim stated she got out with just the clothes on her back and shoes on her feet.
While residents lost their material possessions, what they need now is cash, since those residents don’t have anywhere to store stuff.
To learn more about helping the Chambertin fire victims, attend this evening’s event at the Northside, or call the Vail Valley Salvation Army, 970-748-0704.
