BELLVUE, Colo. - Lory State Park and Lory Does, a local non-profit, will host an ice cream social on Monday, August6, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., to help raise money for area families that have suffered losses from the High Park fire. No park entrance fee is required because the event will be held on Colorado Parks and Wildlife's celebration of Colorado Day, which is a fee-free day at all 42 Colorado State Parks.
A $3 minimum donation for the fire victims is requested and all donations raised will be contributed to the NoCo Rebuilding Network and the High Park Fire Rebuilding Fund. Ice cream will be provided by Ben & Jerry's, Old Town and the Cold Stone Creamery on Laurel St. in Fort Collins. The fundraiser will be held at Lory State Park's Soldier Canyon Picnic area.
