Vail Daily letter: Special community
Vail, CO, Colorado
We would like to express our sincere appreciation toward this wonderful community and the support our family has received over the past year, and past month in specifically.
We always knew we had a special community here in the Eagle Valley but never thought we would be on the receiving end of the spectrum. We have watched groups come together time and time again in support of locals in need, but as said before we never thought we would be the ones in need.
If it were not for the help of the Vail Valley Charitable Fund and so many great friends, we would not be where we are today.
The Charitable Fund aided our family in raising money on behalf of Tim Cochrane (husband and father) after a nine-month battle with cancer. The benefit held at 4 Eagle Ranch was a huge success and we cannot thank those who came and joined us, or sent donations, enough for your generosity.
Unfortunately, Tim did not make it to the fundraiser. But we can honestly say he would have been so very touched by the turnout, as were we.
If you missed it, there was an amazing rainbow outside for most of the evening. We like to think it was Tim watching over us.
So, thank you to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, 4 Eagle Ranch and everyone who came out in support of our family. It means the world to us!
