Fifteen non-profit organizations from La Plata, Archuleta and San Juan Counties will compete for their share of over $20,000 on Thursday, May 12 at Sky Ute Casino Resort in the 17th Annual Non-Profit Money Booth.

A reception will be held in the Event’s Center from 6 to 7 p.m. to honor the selected organizations and present each with a $500 check. Then, the action will get underway at 7 p.m. when a representative from each organization will enter the money booth for 45 seconds to grab as much cash as they can!
