EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado ” For over 15 years, the Literacy Project has been helping Eagle Valley residents of all ages improve their reading skills. Its classes, for adults, students and young children, are held at the Avon, Eagle and Gypsum libraries.

The organization currently serves more than 700 students.

The July 28 fundraiser and luncheon will take place at the Members Clubhouse at Red Sky Ranch beginning at 11:30 am. The cost is $100 per person.

The event will feature new fall fashions by Doncaster. Sally Bowers, who represents Doncaster, will donate 10 percent of all orders placed at or after the show to the Project, and also 10 percent of purchases made at her current trunk show, if customers mention the Literacy Project.

“Colors are bold, fun, lady-like and feminine,” Bowers said. “The casual collection is chic, sassy and mountain casual.”

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

At the luncheon, fashions will be modeled by volunteers Carol Campbell, Wendy Yager, Sandy Lloyd, Claire McCarty, Pam Kross and Lin Bercher.

The annual luncheon is the Literacy Project’s major fundraiser. Beaver Creek Resort Company is the main sponsor, and Eagle Valley Library District also is a major sponsor. Other sponsors include Alpine Bank, American National Bank, Eagle Valley Temps, East West Partners, FirstBank of Vail, Roberta Schmidt, Slifer Smith Frampton, and US Bank.
