Hike, Wine & Dine
Many thanks to all of our 2018 sponsors, restaurants, donors and participants for making the 10th year of Hike, Wine & Dine the most successful to date. Over 410 people participated and we raised over $125,000 for Shaw Cancer Center and Jack's Place. It was a perfect fall day on Beaver Creek Mountain with the vibrant aspen leaves changing color and blue bird skies. Check out the 2018 event photos below to relive the event.
