Base Camp Bash 2014
BASE CAMP BASH: Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 7:00pm – 10:00pm
The 2014 Base Camp Bash is set for Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 7 – 10pm at RedLine Art Gallery in Denver, CO to benefit the Cottonwood Institute!
The Base Camp Bash is our main fundraising event and annual excuse to get together, have fun, eat local food from Snooze, local beer from Great Divide, local wine, local margaritas from Coyote Gold, enjoy live music, and bid on fabulous silent auction items, trips, unique experiences, and date nights from the best local businesses and restaurants. The Base Camp Bash helps raise the critical funds we need each year to connect students to the outdoors and empower them to take action to improve their schools, the community, and the environment for future generations.
The Base Camp Bash is sure to be an awesome time! Check out photos to see how this event has evolved over the years.
