The Telluride Rotary Club wants to thank the community for a wonderful 7th Annual Wells Fargo Red Ball Express. The balls needed an assist due to heavy snow but fun was had by all.
Congratulations to the three winners Abby Hamblin, Telluride, Matt Stricker, Maryland and Austin Koenig, Telluride.
Special thanks to our sponsors Wells Fargo Bank, Telski, Peaks Real Estate and Sotheby's, The Daily Planet, The Telluride Watch and the Town of Mountain Village. Without their support this event would not happen.
The Youth Groups raised approximately $18,000 and the Club raised approximately $10,000. Clubs that participated were the Telluride LaCrosse Club, Telluride Mountain School, TASP, Rotary Interact, Wright Stuff, Telluride Mountain Sprouts and Telluride Academy.
Thank you to Rube Fellicelli for announcing, Fruen Jr. for photographing, Johnathan Greenspan for judging and Chris Binner's daughter Beth Viergever for helping where needed and to all the Rotary volunteers who gave up their skiing day to help. If I have missed anyone my apologies.
Once again the community came out to support a worthy cause. Thank you again to all for making this another successful Red Ball Express event.
