Join other lovers of the Poudre River for an informal mid-week, after-work benefit for the Poudre River Trail Corridor, Poudre Learning Center, and Poudre Heritage Area! The event, set for Wednesday, August 30th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., includes fancy foods and drink from Kenny’s, live entertainment by The Briana Harris Collective jazz quartet, and a special performance by Young Chautauquans. Enjoy the refreshments, river program exhibits, and entertainment close to the River and in the company of others who appreciate the groups whose wonderful work on the river benefits us all.
The Poudre River Trail and Greenway Corridor is an incredible northern Colorado asset that adds immeasurably to
our quality of life, recreational options, and economic vitality. A unique and steadfast public private partnership of
community volunteers, non-profit board members and local governments has developed and supported this
amazing outdoor amenity for the past nearly 25 years.
Such success only happens with the support of local residents and businesses who offer their time, talent and
treasure to secure and sustain this special outdoor space and experience. The Poudre River annual fundraiser – a
joint undertaking by three organizational partners — provides a simple evening benefit of information,
entertainment and refreshments – a change for supporters to gather to reflect back and dream forward – to
enhance and preserve the river feature for generations to come. You can help as a supporting sponsor of this
