Evans Chaffee Construction Group has chosen the Vail Valley Charitable Fund as beneficiary of the company’s 8th Annual Kickball Classic and Pancake Breakfast.

Evans Chaffee Construction Group made its final decision based on the perception that the valley really needs help with the basic needs at this time such as food, medical help, etc. In addition to helping the Vail Valley Charitable Fund and hence the valley’s medical needs, Evans Chaffee Construction Group will also be running a food drive for the Salvation Army at the event. The event will be held on Aug. 15 at the Eagle-Vail Pavilion and surrounding fields.

The Vail Valley Charitable Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission of providing assistance to individuals and families who live and/or work in Eagle County and are experiencing financial crisis due to a medical catastrophe. Proceeds raised through the Evans Chaffee Construction Group Kickball Classic will be restricted by the charitable to assisting families with young children suffering from acute and chronic illnesses.

“This is a great opportunity, not only to raise funds for our grant program, but to educate others about the complex needs of our friends and neighbors battling serious illnesses,” said Vail Valley Charitable Fund Executive Director Karen Simon. “We’re going to have a really fun tournament while keeping the children and their families in our minds and hearts.”

Past beneficiaries of the Kickball Classic and Pancake Breakfast include the Youth Foundation, Samaritan Center of the Rockies, Meet the Wilderness, Success at Six, First Descents, CASA, and the Resource Center.
