Donors aren’t the problem

John Dakin
vice president, communications
Vail Valley Foundation

I wanted to provide a quick clarification on your July 2 cover story regarding the cancellation of the Colorado Stage International Cycle Classic. While the need to pull the plug on the Colorado Stage was indeed financially driven, it was because of a lack of sponsors, rather than individual fundraising. The Vail Valley Foundation uses major corporate dollars to fund our major annual events such as the Birds of Prey World Cup. Individual donors and fundraising support the other efforts of the Foundation, and we are happy to say those dollars remain consistent this year.
