Putting the "Fun" in Fundraising

The Big Sky Community Corporation Annual Parks & Trails Gala went off two weeks ago night as our most successful event yet. With over 230 fantastic, outdoor recreation supporting attendees, we were able to raise a record amount of dollars to put directly back into Big Sky’s parks and trails. Partaking in the planning process with the dedicated Event Committee, setting up the venue with numerous volunteers, and enjoying the festivities of the Gala as my first substantial fundraising event not only opened my eyes to just how fun and rewarding fundraising can be when you believe in the cause, but also to how equally excited the community is about BSCC’s mission to further Big Sky’s parks and trail recreation opportunities. As a 100% donation and grant funded organization, we could not be more thankful to everyone—including volunteers, committee members, auction item donators, attendees, and more—who helped make the night such a success. We’re grateful for events like these that both support our organization financially and revitalize our passion for promoting, acquiring, preserving and maintaining land, parks, and trails for the use of the public.

Next up on the plate for fundraising events is the Big Sky PBR. This two-night Professional Bull Riding Touring Pro Division is returning to Big Sky on July 30 and 31 at the Big Sky Town Center, coming hot off winning Touring Pro Division Event of the Year in 2013. If you like watching the meanest bulls bucking the world’s best riders, live music, and supporting non-profits, this is the event for you! BSCC is a proud recipient of this year’s receiving non-profits, sharing the pot with the Yellowstone Park Foundation, Big Sky Fire Department, Gallant Chance Ranch, and the Blue Water Task Force. You’re bound to have an entertaining couple of nights and support a number of good causes in the Big Sky area, which is quite the win-win opportunity.
