Annual CAIC benefit is Saturday

Daily staff report

BRECKENRIDGE — The Friends of the CAIC are hosting the seventh annual CAIC Benefit Bash, a benefit for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, on Saturday at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge. Mountain enthusiasts are invited to rally together and support CAIC in their continued efforts of avalanche forecasting and education throughout Colorado. This winter kick-off staple features live music from Shakedown Street, an array of tasty food from local restaurants and incredible beer from Colorado’s own New Belgium Brewery. Don’t miss out on the Benefit Bash’s massive silent auction, live auction and thousands of dollars worth of door prizes and giveaways.

About CAIC

CAIC strives to minimize the economic and human impact of snow avalanches on the recreation, tourism and commerce industries. Colorado was dangerous and unfortunately deadly throughout the 2013-14 winter season. Colorado has one of the most dangerous snowpacks in North America and typically accounts for one-third of all avalanche fatalities in the United States. With the winter ramping up, it is important that CAIC continues to receive support so it can provide valuable information for those venturing into the backcountry. The center could not operate without the support of its friends and regular users through funding opportunities such as Saturday’s Benefit Bash.
