25th Annual Gala Dinner and Benefit Auction

Rocky Mountain Raptor Program 25th Annual

Gala Dinner and Benefit Auction


The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program will be celebrating 30 years of saving raptor lives and enriching human lives at our 25th Annual Gala Dinner and Benefit Auction on March 3rd, 2018. This landmark event will commemorate the retirement of RMRP’s founding Executive Director Judy Scherpelz.


The new Executive Director, Carin Avila, says, “We wish to invite everyone to an evening dedicated to Colorado’s raptors. Honoring 30 years of life-saving work and enriching our community through education will be the theme of the evening, and we hope everyone will join our celebration!” Hundreds of extraordinary items will be available on silent and live auction, and the much applauded buffet will be available all evening. Many live Educational Ambassador Raptors will be in attendance to meet face-to-face in a one of a kind experience.


Retiring Director Judy Scherpelz invites, “I’d love to see everyone for one last hurrah as I begin my new adventure. This event will see Carin taking the reigns of this great organization, and I cannot wait to see what new heights she brings it to.”
