Warmer days are around the corner, which means we are getting closer to the Community Foundation’s early summer fundraiser for Archuleta County nonprofits, the 19th Hole Concerts. This year’s beneficiaries are the Ruby M. Sisson Library Foundation, the Cornerstone Project, San Juan Back Country Horsemen, and the Early Childhood Council of Archuleta County.

The 19th Hole Concerts are community fundraisers that feature local musicians and local nonprofits each Thursday evening in June, 5:30-7:30 PM, at the Pagosa Springs Golf Club. The cover charge is a $10 donation which supports the four nonprofits. Corporate sponsors cover event expenses, allowing all proceeds at the end of the series to be pooled and distributed equally to the featured organizations. The collaborative approach to the concerts is vital to their success. Last year’s concerts raised more than $2,600 for each participating organization!

The Ruby M. Sisson Library Foundation will be represented at the June 6th concert. The Foundation was formed in 2018 to help raise funds to support the programs, resources, services, and facilities of the library. This year, they will complete their largest capital campaign, Mountains of Opportunity, to expand and renovate the Ruby Sisson Library. They will be joined by musical guests Jason Rose and Denise Chaney of the Jackson Mountain Ramblers.

The Cornerstone Project is a nonprofit with a mission to support survivors of human trafficking. Through education and advocacy, they work to offer restorative, alternative solutions to help survivors reintegrate into society with hope and purpose. The Cornerstone Project will be part of the June 13th concert along with musical guest Bo DePeña.

San Juan Back Country Horsemen works to ensure public trails remain open and accessible to recreational livestock and pedestrian use. They solicit donations to fund the trail work needed to stabilize areas in dire need of repair. They will be highlighted at the June 20th concert with musical guests the San Juan Mountain Boys.

The Early Childhood Council of Archuleta County was founded to support families of young children by supporting and sustaining a comprehensive, high-quality, accessible early childhood system that prepares children for success both academically and personally. They will be featured at the June 27th concert with the music of Bob Hemenger.
