CCR 2006 Donations

The Curve Cowboy Reunion is a non-profit (IRS 501 (C) 3) organization.  A great deal of time, effort, and personal expense goes into hosting this event for the benefit of the attendees of the Curve Cowboy Reunion.  All funds collected by the reunion, via donations, reunion fees, and merchandise, are used to operate the reunion for the benefit of all who attend and as an initial seed funding for the following year. Any residual is donated to a local charity.  Nobody in the CCR is in this to make money. If the CCR makes money, it will loose its non-profit status.  The goal is to have a great reunion and to walk away with great memories.

In 2001, the Curve Cowboy Reunion on behalf of all the attendees donated over $1500 to First Step, an organization chartered to provide an array of services for children and adults with developmental disabilities in a community setting including early intervention, preschool, residential homes and supported employment.  Between the Curve Cowboy Reunion's donation and the proceeds of the Bike Wash, over $1800 was secured for First Step.

In 2002, the Curve Cowboy Reunion on behalf of all the attendees donated $5000 to the BMW MOA Foundation, an organization under the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America chartered to carry out educational activities that benefit the BMW Community, motorcycle riders in general and other educational activities related to motorcycling.

In 2003, the Curve Cowboy Reunion on behalf of all the attendees donated $8000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, an organization who's mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.  Also, the Curve Cowboy Reunion on behalf of all the attendees donated $500 to Gatlinburg Interact, a Rotary-sponsored service club for young people ages 14-18. The program gives young people an opportunity to participate in fun, meaningful service projects while developing leadership skills and meeting new friends.

In 2004, the Curve Cowboy Reunion on behalf of all the attendees raised nearly $12000 for the Summit County Mentors, a well-established community-based mentoring program that matches caring adult volunteers with youth ages 6 to 16.  Summit County Mentors’ mission is “to positively influence the youth of Summit County to lead healthy lifestyles, through a consistent one-on-one relationship with an adult", and $12000 for TAME, an organization that provides equine assisted therapies and activities, including recreational riding for individuals with disabilities, hippotherapy, equine assisted psychotherapy, driving, vaulting, competition and other therapeutic and educational interactions with horses.  And generated over $1000 for the local Breckenridge Nordic Ski Team.
