Five Archuleta County nonprofits—Wings Early Childhood Center, Habitat for Humanity, Weminuche Audubon Society, PM Morning Rotary Club, and Healthy Archuleta doing business as FSFE Food Coalition—have been selected to benefit from the concerts of the 19th hole at Pagosa Springs Golf Club.
The 19th Hole Concerts pairs non-profit organization Archuleta with local musical talent on Thursday nights, June 2-June 30, 5:30-7:30 p.m., to provide a fun and entertaining event. Grills, beer, wine and signature cocktails will be available for purchase. No outside food or drink is permitted. Spectators should bring a camping chair or blanket and leave pets at home. The 2022 concert program is available below.
The cover charge is a $10 donation that supports the five selected nonprofits. A $50 five-time pass is sold online through May 31 only: https://www.swcommunityfoundation.org/19th-hole-online-tix/. At the end of the concert series, all proceeds are pooled and distributed equally to the five featured nonprofits.
In 2021, the 19th Hole Concerts awarded $2,075 to each of the four selected organizations. This year, the Community Foundation’s Archuleta Committee serving southwestern Colorado expects to see an increase in attendance and provide even more money to nonprofits. Non-profit organizations will work together to promote and generate attendance at each concert through a variety of marketing tasks.
