Hundreds dine out for MS
BEAVER CREEK – More than 350 people ate at the Dusty Boot Wednesday to raise money for a local nonprofit that aims to keep people with multiple sclerosis active.
Dusty Boot owner John Shipp will match funds raised at the Dine Out for MS benefit for Edwards-based Heuga Center.”It was an amazing show of support for a cause that touches the lives of so many people – multiple sclerosis,” Heuga Center President Brian Hutchinson said. “The Dusty Boot, local community sponsors, and the number of people who came, shows tremendous support for The Heuga Center’s mission to better the lives of people and families struggling with MS.”
More than 20 local businesses donated door prizes, media support, food and beverages to the benefit.”The turn-out couldn’t have been better, and I feel proud of my employees, sponsors, and all who patronized the Dusty Boot for this cause,” Shipp said.
In the past year, the Heuga Center has conducted more than 60 programs serving more than 7,000 people and families living with MS, Hutchinson. For more information, contact The Heuga Center at 926-1290 or visit http://www.heuga.org.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
