Wild West Day
For 32 years, parents have been helping Eagle County public schools raise funds by putting on the wildly popular Wild West Day at 4 Eagle Ranch neat Wolcott, CO. This one-day event singlehandedly raises money for the public schools hosting one event, therefore streamlining the efforts for asking for donations, silent auction items and people can give once to help all the public schools.
“Before COVID-19, Wild West Day raised $200,000 annually, much-needed funding split equally between our public elementary schools. Despite losing three years of momentum due to the event’s cancellation because of COVID we hope to gain back the traction, camaraderie, and fundraising benefits of Wild West Day this year,” says Tessa Kirchner, Vice President of the Education Foundation of Eagle County (EFEC).
Check out the family fun at 4 Eagle Ranch from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. which includes fun and games like potato sack races, pie and slime eating contest and more. There is also a raffle and you can purchase tickets at HPSRaffleWebsite.org and a silent auction going on via the WildWestDay.org website.
