NOCO 20/30 MAKES GRANTS, PLANS SUITCASE PARTY
By NCBR Staff – August 23, 2010
FORT COLLINS – The Northern Colorado Active 20/30 Children’s Foundation has selected its grant recipients for 2010: The Center for Family Outreach; CHAMP; Child Advocacy Center; Child Advocacy Resource Education; Junior Achievement; Student Recovery Program; La Familia – The Family Center; Mountain Wilderness; NFCBA Coats & Boots Program; Partners Mentoring Youth; Project Self Sufficiency; Respite Care; SAVA; Teaching Tree; TEAM Fort Collins, and Turning Point.
NOCO 20/30 was started in 2007 by five young entrepreneurs looking for a way to give back to their community. Its mission is to provide young adults with opportunity for personal growth, friendship and leadership development, while improving the quality of life for special needs children in our regional community. It has grown to 36 members, and has made grants totaling more than $350,000 to Northern Colorado charities.
These grants are driven by the organization’s unique fundraising events including the Kentucky Derby Party, Christmas for Kids, and the marquee event, the Suitcase Party. Attendees come with bags packed in case they win the evening’s raffle and are whisked away to an exotic destination on the spot.
The 2010 Suitcase Party takes place this Friday, Aug. 27 from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Water Valley/Budweiser Hanger at 5833 Langley in the Fort Collins/Loveland Airpark.
