The annual Evergreen Ice Melt Contest, sponsored by the Mountain Foothills Rotary Club, is underway with a newly-painted, bright yellow barrel placed on the lake on January 11.

The goal of this year’s contest is to raise money from ticket sales in support of the Evergreen Park and Recreation District Special Needs Program, Evergreen Christian Outreach, Crutches 4 Africa and charitable programs of the Mountain Foothills Rotary Foundation.

The contest challenges ticket holders to guess the exact date and time the Rotary barrel will fall through the ice on the lake. First prize is $1,000, second place is $500, third place wins $250 and the fourth luckiest guess receives $125.

The event would not be possible without the generosity of numerous local sponsors. To date, this year’s premium level sponsor is Colorado Serenity.

Gold level sponsors are: Elevation Dental, Evergreen Dental Group, Evergreen National Bank, and JustAroundHere.com.

1st Bank, Dogma, DW’s 285 Diner, Evergreen Vision Clinic, Kittredge Auto Rebuilders, Mark Ryan, Inc., Smiling Moose Deli, State Farm – Chuck Ridings, and Tuscany Tavern are silver sponsors this year.

Bronze sponsors are All Kids Dental, American Family Insurance – Don Alvarado, Beaver Brook Pet Center, Centennial Bank, Chris’s Glass, Corfee and Associates, Everbean, Firestone Auto Care, Nancy Grant, L&H Autobody, Cindy Lempke, Rose Marie Lyon, Safeway, SC Robert, C.P.A., Wells Law Firm, P.C. and John Wurster.
