FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ryan Schlaefer Fine Furniture to participate in the 7th Annual First Descents Ball
Loveland, CO March 19, 2013 – Ryan Schlaefer Fine Furniture, Inc., a small furniture design and manufacturing company located in Loveland, Colorado will be participating in this year’s 7th Annual First Descents Ball to be held at the Ritz-Carlton in Bachelor Gulch, Colorado at the end of this month.
First Descents, a nonprofit organization, offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors (ages 18 to 39) a free outdoor adventure experience design to empower them to climb, paddle and surf beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer, reclaim their lives and connect with others who are doing the same.
“We are excited to be donating a piece of furniture to this cause again,” said Ryan Schlaefer, owner of Ryan Schlaefer Fine Furniture, Inc. “Most people have been touched by cancer and both my wife and I have lost people we love. We feel like it is our duty to help an organization like First Descents.”
Last year, the FD Ball broke a record with 410 guests raising $450,000 to send young adults fighting cancer to FD camps in the United States and Canada. This year’s hat-themed ball includes a five-star dinner from Spago chefs, a top-shelf open bar and live and silent fundraising auctions. The band Funkiphino is scheduled to perform.
Ryan Schlaefer’s contribution will be just one of many fantastic auction items that will hopefully assist in breaking last year’s amazing fundraising level. Ryan Schlaefer Fine Furniture has donated a Tumbling Block Table to the FD Ball silent fundraiser.
The 7th Annual First Descents Ball is Saturday, March 23, 2013 at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. Tickets are available at firstdescents.org/events/fd-ball. Learn more about First Descents at FirstDescents.org.
