Carlson Wagonlit aids foundation
For the third year in a row Carlson Wagonlit Travel is donating $5 for every airline ticket sold in the month of September to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Last year, Carlson Wagonlit raised over $2,600 for the foundation and presented the check at the Race for the Cure held in Denver. Carlson Wagonlit Travel donates the money in the name of the people of Steamboat Springs.
This year's race is scheduled for Oct. 7, and the goal, with the help of private donations, is to increase last year's amount. Donations made will provide the Steamboat Springs area with a percentage of the monies allocated by the foundation.
