Sip. Savor. Support. — April 5

We are so excited to be hosting our Sip. Savor. Support. fundraiser again this year – this is our school’s primary fundraising event! This year our goal is to raise $67,000 to directly benefit Blue Lake and Little Blue Preschools!

  • Date: Friday, April 5, 2024 | 6–10 PM
  • Location: TACAW | 400 Robinson St, Basalt, CO 81621
  • Admission: $35 in advance | $40 at the door. Purchase online tickets below. To purchase tickets in person stop by Blue Lake Preschool in the Blue Lake neighborhood or Little Blue Preschool in Downtown Carbondale or Alpine Bank in Basalt, Willits or Carbondale.

You won’t want to miss this fun night out… this isn’t a typical preschool event! The evening consists of a silent auction, ‘Date’ drawing, food, desserts, drinks, dancing to music from DJ Honey, a photo booth, door prizes, and time to meet with other local parents and people in our valley. This event is open to the public. In previous years we had more than 250 people attend. We can’t wait to see you and your friends there!

Drawing Tickets

As always, this year’s drawing includes SPECTACULAR prizes – below are our prize packages for 2024!

  • Drawing Ticket Prices: $10 each, $25 for 3 tickets, $50 for 6 tickets. Donations accepted but not required.
  • Drawing: 8:45 PM on Friday, April 5, 2024 at our Sip. Savor. Support. event. You don’t need to be present to win!

The money raised from this year’s drawing will be used to help to support Early Childhood Education in The Valley.
