First of four 19th Hole concerts to take place Thursday


The Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado is sponsoring, in partnership with the Pagosa Springs Golf Club, the first of four 19th Hole Concerts starting this Thursday, June 6. 

The featured artists this week are Jason Rose and Denise Chaney of the Jackson Mountain Ramblers, and the featured nonprofit is the Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library Foundation.

The Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library Foundation was formed in 2018 to help raise funds to support the programs, resources, services and facilities of the library. This year, it will complete its largest capital campaign, Mountains of Opportunity, to expand and renovate the Ruby Sisson Library.

Food, beer, wine and signature cocktails will be available for purchase. No outside food, drink or pets will be allowed. Concertgoers should bring a camping chair or blanket — or both — to take full advantage of a summer evening in the Rocky Mountains.

The 19th Hole Concerts are held every Thursday in June from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Pagosa Springs Golf Club. The cover charge is a $10 donation which supports the four nonprofits selected through the month of June. Corporate sponsors cover event expenses, allowing all proceeds at the end of the series to be pooled and distributed equally to the featured organizations. The collaborative approach to the concerts is vital to their success.
