Mountain Resource Center will host its 3rd Annual Bowls After Dark Evening Gala on Thursday, Sept. 28 at 6 pm at Mount Vernon Country Club, 24933 Club House Circle, Golden. The Bowls After Dark Evening Gala is the signature fundraising event that supports Mountain Resource Center’s mission: “We strengthen our community with services that empower people.”

The opening reception, with music entertainment, will be followed by an eclectic dinner of specialty soups and foods prepared by local area chefs. This wonderful evening is considered an adult event.

Mountain Resource Center is a community-based nonprofit organization that addresses the needs of children and adults within our community. In 2016 Mountain Resource Center provided over 15,476 services. The services provided varied in range, from meeting basic needs like groceries, rent assistance and utility payments to programs that lead to long-term success like workforce training, financial coaching and parent support programs.

Mountain Resource Center works to strengthen and empower people in our communities through programs that support veterans, families through early childhood and parent education, as well as programs that foster good nutrition and healthy lifestyles. Mountain Resource Center relies on donations and volunteers from the community to meet these needs and support our vision of neighbors helping neighbors achieve their potential.

“By meeting the short- and long-term needs of our clients through multiple services, they are able to achieve self-sufficiency more quickly and effectively,” said Lorye McLeod, CEO of Mountain Resource Center.
