BluSky Restoration hosts Clays for Kids fundraiser, raises $34,000
WOLCOTT — BluSky Restoration, a national commercial and residential restoration, renovation, environmental and roofing company, continued its efforts to give back in the communities in which it conducts business, specifically for families, women and youth, via its Clays for Kids event.
BluSky matched dollar-for-dollar funds at the13th annual sporting clays fundraiser for local nonprofit Ute Springs Experiential Learning Center. Hosted at Sage Outdoor Adventures on Friday, Sept. 30, Clays for Kids raised more than $34,000 for Ute Springs and its programs. This year’s donation was the largest from BluSky Restoration’s Western Slope office.
“Clays for Kids 2016 has been a huge success. We saw a lot of great support and engagement from our mountain communities,” said John Corbin, vice president of BluSky. “Clays for Kids really brings the best out of our mountain folks and is an awesome way for us to enjoy the outdoors, fellowship, laughter and raising money for a fantastic nonprofit.
“Ute Springs is an amazing organization whose programs embody their mission. We are grateful to be in a position to match proceeds to support such a worthy cause.”
This year, Ute Springs will exceed 31,000 contact hours working with kids of all ages. Ute Springs programs focus on enhancing social-emotional leadership and skills through an adventure-based, experiential curriculum in nature.
“The opportunity to work with a local business dedicated to supporting its community has been amazing. BluSky’s generosity and philanthropy will help us to continue to serve Eagle County and beyond,” said Dacia Woodworth, Ute Springs board member.
