Telluride Medical Center hosts its annual FEAST, 3/13

AUS great barrie reef The online auction for the Telluride Medical Center's Operation F.E.A.S.T. (Fund for Expanding And Supporting Telluride's Medical Center) began March 1 and continues through March 11. Prizes range from get-a-ways to exotic trips to tickets to Colorado experiences, such as the destinations pictured: Australia, the Smith Fork Ranch, and half-day fly-fishing with Telluride Outside.

What's it all about?

Cabins-right-left Over the past six years, the F.E.A.S.T. has contributed over one million dollars to improve the scope and sophistication of the Telluride Medical Center, including the purchase of a CT Scan, computerized X-Ray, new X-Ray and electronic medical record system. All the money raised from the 2010 event auction and dinner will go to support the much-needed Emergency Room renovation.

At the heart of the 6th annual gala fundraiser is health and sustainability: Chef Jake Linzinmeir of Excelsior and Xcafe and Kenny Gilbert, executive chef of Onyx and Suede Bar at Capella are creating a gourmet feast using products grown on regional farms and ranches. The evening's entertainment is the nationally renowned Melvin Seals & Second to None, performing with his new funk band. Seals has been a force in the music industry for over 30 years, performing with legends such as Chuck Berry, Charlie Daniels and Elvin Bishop. Seals is most revered for his powerful, high-spirited Hammond B-3 organ and keyboard playing in the Jerry Garcia Band.
