Colorado Chautauqua and Boulder’s Top Chefs Dish Up Respite & Nourishment in Wildfire Crisis for Displaced Families.

Free Fire Relief All Family Picnic Dinner for Displaced Families This Thursday Evening

Who:             Those displaced by the Four Mile Canyon and Reservoir Road fires—those that have lost their homes, those who have evacuated, firefighters and their families, volunteers, etc.

What:            A really good, seasonal dinner served picnic-style on the Chautauqua Green with really great company–(menu below).

When:           Thursday, September 16th 2010

Dinner services:  3:30 – 4:30 pm, 4:30 – 5:30 pm, 5:30 – 6:30 pm

Where:             The Colorado Chautauqua Green, Boulder, Colorado.

Why:                We just simply want to feed those going through hard times—a peaceful picnic in the park — when life has been no picnic for these families — with locally prepared food by chefs and community businesses who care, is the least we can do.

How: RSVPs aren’t required, but encouraged so we know how many to expect.

If possible, please RSVP to Abby Wardell at Fresh Ideas Group at [email protected] or 303-449-2108 ex.22.
