SCRG volunteers for CAIC fundraiser

On November 14th, 11 members of the Summit County Rescue Group worked as volunteers for the second annual Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) benefit bash at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge. The event, put on by Summit County locals Aaron Carlson and Joe Vandal, included live music by Rocket Rooster, a silent auction, door prizes, beer and food.

Carlson and Vandal began the event last year, after a long-standing Boulder fundraiser for the CAIC was canceled. The CAIC depends heavily on grass roots funding to maintain its season-long schedule of avalanche forecast online bulletins and hotlines.
