PRLog - June 21, 2012 - FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- When tragedy strikes, it's nice to know you have compassionate neighbors ready to assist with a recovery process. Such is the case with the High Park Fire BBQ Fundraiser sponsored by Stephanie Franklin's American Family Insurance Agency and 15 local businesses.
The High Park Fire is the largest fire in Larimer County and it has consumed over 68,200 acres and destroyed over 191 homes as of the publishing of this notice. Many people lost homes, barns, work structures, vehicles and many precious items that can never be replaced. It has been devastating to our entire Fort Collins area.
The BBQ Fundraiser is one of many in the area that are focused on providing some relief for the fire victims. Donations from the following companies contributed to the success of this fundraiser. We are so appreciative of the companies and staff members that made this happen in such a short period of time. Thank you to:
