Great bocce tourney this year
Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation gives a hearty thanks to our sponsors and the 40 teams that participated in La Bella Festa! Bocce Tournament on Father’s Day. It was a beautiful day and we raised thousands of dollars to help people in crisis situations in Eagle County. Participants enjoyed meeting new people, tasting cool Italian ices on the courts, playing lots of bocce, listening to the music of Walter Ammon, and eating Italian hors d’oeuvres and dinner. Our sponsors this year were Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, Vail Summit Orthopedics, Maximum Comfort Pool and Spa, Colorado Capital Bank, High Country Copiers, Boles Construction, Walls and Floors/The Paint Bucket, First Bank of Avon, Land Designs by Ellison, Colorado Business Bank, Merv Lapin, Car Quest Auto Parts, Ace Hardware, EPS Design and Printing, The Vail Daily, NRC, Orrison Distributors, Gran Crue, The Gourmet Cowboy, Eagle River Wanter and Sanitation, The Vail Mountaineer, and KZYR. We are especially grateful during these economic times for their commitment to our community. A special thanks goes to the Vail Daily for letting the public know of our efforts through articles, photographs and ads. The winning team and recipient of a $1,000 prize was Select Surfaces. Captained by Rob Davis, they generously donated $500 of their prize money back to Swift Eagle. The second place team was Walls & Floors-The Paint Bucket. The prize for Best Costumes went to CarQuest. Pella and Chris Eklund and Howard and Barbara Rothenburg were fashionably sporting Italian gondolier-style outfits complete with hats. The Best Loser Award went to the Hammond family of Avon.If you are interested in finding out more about Swift Eagle, please give us a call (Dave Haakenson at 970-845-7655) or go to http://www.swifteagle.org.
