Our signature annual fundraising event is our Farm-To-Table Dinner. For 2016, the dinner will be on Friday September 9 at 6:00 p.m. at Lone Hawk Farm, near Longmont in the heart of Boulder County’s farming community.
With views of open fields and the Front Range, we think you couldn’t find a more idyllic setting to enjoy good company, and good wholesome food while supporting the vital work of Children First.
This year, we’re partnering with Bay Windows Catering to create our scrumptious feast and they’ll be working closely with Lone Hawk Farm to craft dishes from the day’s harvest featuring fresh organic produce straight from the fields.
Tickets are $85 per person and include dinner, two alcoholic beverages, and soft drinks. There will be a cash bar. Festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. with appetizers and socializing. Tickets are available through Eventbrite – don’t wait – we’re hoping this will be a sell out and we want to see you at this year’s event.
Of each ticket sold, $35 comes directly to support the very necessary services Children First provides and so I’m thanking you in advance for your continued support for our mission.
Our Keynote Speaker this year is Mike Butler, Public Safety Chief for the city of Longmont.
