THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS

For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band. The group’s distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as “Tuff Enuff” and “Wrap It Up.” Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation. And this year his solo album “Take Me Back” is nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album. Learn more about The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

STELLA GIVES BACK FREE CONCERT

August 13th, 2022  | Hideaway Park

Join us on August 13th at Hideaway Park in Winter Park for the 2022 Stella Gives Back summer concert benefiting Grand County Search and Rescue! The benefit concert will be called ‘Stella Gives Back’ in honor of the dog Stella who was rescued by Grand County Search and Rescue volunteers last fall. A unexpected early snowstorm hit two brothers on a backcountry trip, which turned into two separate rescues – one for them and one for Stella the dog. Both were successful due to the amazing volunteer coordination of the Grand County Search and Rescue team, which is powered solely by donations from people like you.

The event will feature live music by the band Slopeside in a beautiful outdoor setting, giveaways, auctions, games, food and drink. Your participation would be incredibly valuable to our guests and to Grand County Search and Rescue.  Our goal is to raise $100,000 for GCSAR through ticket sales, auctions, and activities at the event.

Learn more about Stella Gives Back Free Concert HERE!

More details about the event will be coming soon. Learn how you can help donate time, dollars, resources, or items for the silent auction by contacting the foundation  HERE!
