We had an incredible turnout of teams and participants this year at the 16th annual Men Who Grill supporting the Women’s Resource Center’s at Buckley Park. We raised over $18,000 to support women and girls in La Plata County.
Steamworks Brewing provided the beer to quench our thirst, and the Kirk James Blues Band provided a nice blend of music.
Gratitude for teams this year: 99X Radio, Honeyville and Bank of Colorado who won People’s Choice Award; Backcountry Experience; Manna, which won Judge’s Choice Award; Atmos Energy; Black Bear Carpet Cleaning; Auto Care Colorado/Napa Auto Center; Durango Cannabis Co.; VFW Post 4031; Armadillo Storage; and Reynolds, Ash & Associates.
