Bluegrass on the Arkansas, the May 26-27 Riverside Park celebration sponsored by Salida Noon Rotary Club, is soliciting cash donations and in-kind contributions to fund this year’s event.

“We’ll welcome sponsorships at any level,” said event chairman Scarlett Massine. “Donations and sponsorships are tax deductible and this is a free event the whole community can enjoy.”

Donations and profits from food and beverage sales during the event are used to provide vocational and scholastic scholarships for graduating Salida seniors. Massine said sponsorships are important to the fund-raising event because they offset costs, allowing more proceeds to go to scholarships.

The club has established five sponsorship levels this year, ranging from diamond band sponsors to platinum ($1,000 or more), gold ($500), silver ($250) and a $150 bronze sponsorship.

Checks for sponsorships or donations should be made to Salida Rotary Club Charitable Fund, with “Bluegrass 2018” in the memo line. Payments should be mailed to Salida Rotary Club, P.O. Box 155, Salida, CO 81202.
