On Saturday, Red Ribbon Project will host the Eagle Music Festival, its annual fundraiser, at The Dusty Boot in Eagle from 2 to 10 p.m.

Funds raised support work in local schools to promote conflict resolution and stress management to decrease risky behavior leading to overall healthy choices.

Red Ribbon Project helps build healthy, resilient kids today for a strong community tomorrow. The Eagle Music Festival includes food and drinks as well as dancing. There will also be a silent auction with items including a Vail Resorts Epic Pass, Golden Bear jewelry and a Street Swell long board.

Local bands include Rewind, First Chair, The Platonics, The Burnsville Band, Custom 20, Artist Unknown and The Martinellis playing everything from rock ‘n’ roll to blues from the ’70s through today.

Youth Education

The event kicks off the beginning of Red Ribbon Project’s Youth Education programs in local schools. The evidence based programs address substance abuse prevention, healthy relationship building, coping with adversities and improving communication.

These programs promote healthy alternatives to risky behavior by teaching resistive skills, developing greater self-confidence, enabling students to effectively cope with anxiety, increasing knowledge of consequences, and enhancing cognitive and behavioral competency to reduce and prevent health risk behaviors.

Red Ribbon Project also offers free HIV testing three to four times a year for the community.
