On Thursday, July 8, Bob Hemenger will be performing at the 19th Hole Concert Series at the Pagosa Springs Golf Course at 5:30 p.m. to help raise money for Chimney Rock Interpretive Association (CRIA) and three other Archuleta County nonprofits.
Hemenger is an extremely talented sax player of jazz, blues, soul, pop and Dixieland music.
The 19th Hole Concerts Series pairs an Archuleta nonprofit with a local music talent on Thursday evenings, July 8 through July 29, to offer a fun and entertaining event. Food from the grill, beer, wine and signature cocktails will be available for purchase. Concert-goers should bring a camp chair or blanket and, please, leave pets at home. The cover charge is a $10 donation which supports the four selected nonprofits. At the end of the concert series, all proceeds are pooled and distributed equally to the four featured organizations.
For over 20 years, (CRIA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and its volunteers have shared the story of the Ancestral Puebloan people with thousands of visitors through tours and special programs at Chimney Rock National Monument.
Historic places like Chimney Rock reflect the past while enriching our future, but without public support, CRIA would be unable to provide the interpretive program that keeps Chimney Rock’s history alive. Your donations help to fund educational projects, volunteer recruitment/training and the interpretive programs that help keep Chimney Rock National Monument a local attraction.
With a safe, physically distanced, outdoor venue, the 19th Hole Concerts are sure to be a comfortable way for community-minded music lovers to re-engage and connect with one another. Save the dates and plan to enjoy live, local music and beautiful scenery while supporting local organizations. For tickets, please visit: http://bit.ly/19thHoleConcerts.
