Excellence in Climbing (Bid Soon and Often!)

The American Alpine Club will hold their annual Excellence in Climbing Awards on Saturday, June 3rd.  This event benefits TWO Golden institutions–the American Mountaineering Museum, and the American Alpine Club Library.

The Excellence in Climbing Awards will include a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, entertainment, scrumptious food, awards, and an after party with live 80’s music by The Goonies.

The highlight of the evening will be inducting the 2017 Hall of Mountaineering Excellence (HoME) awardees: Sean Patrick, David Morton and Melissa Arnot Reid, Sean and Timmy O’Neill, and former AAC President Doug Walker. These deserving climbers have achieved greatness in the mountains and returned home to give back to their communities. We will also be recognizing the 2017 Cutting Edge Award winners: Scott Bennett and Graham Zimmerman.  BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW.

The online auction is open right now, so start bidding.

This is the last day of school for Jeffco public school students, so be on the lookout for giddy kids!

Don’t forget GoFarm’s Spring Happy Hour, from 4-6 this afternoon at Connects Workspace in the Armory Building.  Good chance to learn more about Community Supported Agriculture or just generally celebrate spring.
