A Successful Fundraiser at Embracing Our Community!

Posted on August 1, 2021

Support the Vail Interfaith Chapel

WHY?

The Vail Interfaith Chapel is the spiritual heart of Vail.  Without it, guests and residents cannot worship any of the six faiths that gather here. It is also the community center for the Town of Vail – a cultural and historical icon use by over 50,000 people annually. After 50+ years of constant use,  improvements are needed to improve the building’s structural and aesthetic integrity.

– 34,000 residents and guests attend religious services annually

– 100 families served with emergency shelter in winter storms in past 5 years

– 4,200 fans at 16 Bravo! Vail concerts and discussions each year

– 10,608 people annually attend 14 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week

– $15 million minimum annual revenue driven to wedding-related businesses through the Vail Valley

The Vail Interfaith Chapel and Ministry Building are used for non-religious purposes approximately 60% of the time.

And what a night it was! With nearly $250,000 raised and a full house at 170 in attendance, Vail Pioneer Vi Brown was honored by family, friends and community.  We are so grateful for the generosity of Vail residents,  congregation members, 30 volunteers, hard-working staff, and our Advisory Committee members, Hazel Miller, Tony Gulizia, our sponsors and so many other for making our inaugural fundraising event such a success.  Enjoy this video!
