BRECKENRIDGE — The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center will host the eighth annual Colorado Avalanche Information Center Benefit Bash on Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge.

Mountain enthusiasts are invited to rally together and support the CAIC in its continued efforts with avalanche forecasting and education throughout Colorado. This winter kickoff party features live music from Missed the Boat and beer from New Belgium Brewery. Don’t miss out on the benefit’s massive silent and live auctions, plus thousands of dollars worth of door prizes and giveaways.

“With winter ramping up, it is important that the CAIC continues to receive support so it can provide valuable information for those venturing into the backcountry,” said Aaron Carlson, executive director of the nonprofit Friends of the CAIC.

‘Critical Fundraising Event’

“The Benefit Bash continues to be our most critical fundraising event. It wouldn’t be possible without the support of our 125-plus sponsors, as well as the 1,200 guests and 55 volunteers. It is truly amazing to see the community come together to support our avalanche center.”

Tickets are available for pre-purchase for $40 at http://www.friendsofcaic.org. Entrance fee includes one door prize ticket, two beer tickets, dinner, access to the silent auction and live music by Missed the Boat. People are encouraged to buy tickets in advance, as this event sells out every year.
