This Veterans Day how about giving back to a local organization doing a great deal for local and Colorado vets. Come join us for an entertaining evening at our annual Salida Fundraiser. All Proceeds going toward our 2020 Program Schedule. Veterans Expeditions (VetEx) gets over 600 veterans outside every year. On over 40 trips. This is VetEx’s 10th year of operation. Thousands of military vets have been outside with us over the years.  $50 pays for one veteran for one day trip and $250 funds the whole weekend for that veteran.

VIP options available. Dinner and Drinks included with admission, additional cash bar options. Silent Auction with trip packages, local offerings, outdoor gear from our sponsors, and much more! We will be having the inspiring speaker, Nick Watson of Salida Colorado at the event. Nick was recognized as one of the 2014 National Geographic Adventurers of the Year for creating innovative outdoor military veteran programming at Veterans Expeditions. Nick is the Founder and Executive Director of Veterans Expeditions which is based in Salida. Veterans Expeditions was recognized as the 2017 Outdoor Inspiration Award winners. Nick will be speaking about his experience and what giving back to the veteran community is like for him. Nick will also be showing a short film on last years Mount Logan climb. Mount Logan is the second tallest mountain in North America and widely considered one of the toughest mountains to climb. It is the most massive mountain in the world containing the largest ice sheet outside of the poles. This film brings to light those challenging conditions and the humor necessary to have success in such a harsh place. The film was done by USMC veteran Nevin Fowler.

This event is held at the Salida Community Center 305 F St, Salida, CO 81201.  salidacommunitycenter.org
