Cups for a Cure – Annually in October
This event is a fundraiser helping support local breast cancer awareness and programs. In 2022, the Fruita Area Chamber Foundation, in partnership with the Fruita Area Chamber, Timberline Bank, Happy Trails Colorado, and Copper Club Brewing Company, raised $7500 to give back to our community. The donations went towards Community Hospital Foundation and the Family Health West Foundation.
