A fundraising event for elevateHER will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, November 20 at Soulcraft Brewing located at 248 W Hwy 50 in Salida.
The Craft for a Cause event features elevateHER and Soulcraft Brewing will give 20 percent of the proceeds from the event to the organization. There is no cost to get into the event.
Founded in early 2017, elevateHER is targeted towards young women in grades 6-12. elevateHER began its programming after identifying a variety of major barriers to outdoor access for participants, including cost, lack of knowledge, and early exposure to substance abuse.
elevateHER shared, “By combating these barriers through a holistic approach that is focused around empowering the mind, body, and soul, mission emerged: to foster self-worth and grit in young women through mentoring, outdoor adventure, and holistic wellness programs.”
They continued, “After a year of programming and testing, we are excited to expand beyond Buena Vista, Colorado, into several surrounding areas, and to impact more young women than ever before.”
