Colorado Flood Relief Fundraiser

Broadcast media across Colorado joined forces for “Colorado Flood Relief,” a live fundraiser on Wednesday, September 18, to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts in Colorado and Community Food Share, which equally split donations between Community Food Share, serving Boulder and Broomfield Counties, The Food Bank for Larimer County, and Weld Food Bank. Together we raised more than $1.1 million dollars for the Colorado Flood Relief Fundraiser. Thank you for donating!
