"[As a High School Leader] my favorite experience was learning how to teach and work with 6th graders."

Another Successful Event!
Hundreds of supporters joined us on September 26th to raise money for 
Outdoor Lab! 

As guests arrived at the Lucky Penny Ranch in Evergreen that afternoon, they were greeted by Outdoor Lab Interns and live music by Mt. Evan's very own Jason Harding and the band, Original Recipe. As the day progressed, guests enjoyed yard games, including a very intense corn-hole tournament, as well as food provided by Moe's Original BBQ and drinks from a secret bar! 

After a very entertaining live auction, all who attended got to enjoy some dancing and live music by Denver's 6 Million Dollar Band! It was a night filled with fun--and some good exercise--that I'm sure all who attended will not soon forget! 

THANK YOU to all who showed their support to Outdoor Lab by either attending, sponsoring, or donating to the Foundation for this event. We could not succeed without each and everyone of you!
