Crestone Performances commitments to serving youth

The Crestone Eagle • March, 2020

Crestone Performances Inc. welcomes back two of our long-time loyal sponsors who believe in our commitment to serve youth and communities. These are Sangre de Cristo Real Estate in Crestone and Amicas Pizza in Salida.

Sangre de Cristo Real Estate is committed to a high level of service, and to providing sound counsel that takes your life circumstances into account. They are keenly aware of the possibilities of the region and are committed to improving the quality of life of residents. They are also active in the community, participating widely in local non-profit activities including KRZA community radio, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the San Luis Valley, several arts organizations, politics, and feline rescue activities. Please consider Sangre de Cristo Real Estate for all your real estate needs.

Located in the heart of downtown Salida, Colorado, Amicas Pizza is a community tap-house and scratch kitchen full of good energy and great flavors. Amicas focuses on keeping the ingredients as clean and locally sourced as possible. They supply summer and school lunch programs through the Boys and Girls club. Amicas Pizza directly supports our carnival in Salida. So thank ‘em and eat pizza!

So what’s going on now? CPI held another Student Open Mic on February 20 at the Crestone Charter School. Once again this gave students of all ages a chance to perform in front of parents and the community and once again they hammed it up. The next Open Mic will be March 26.

CPI will be awarding the first round of scholarships in March. The program is designed to help students with their efforts in music, dance and theatre and all Saguache County school students are eligible.

Our first carnival of the year happened in Moffat, February 13. The next ones will be at the Crestone Charter School March 27 and at Center schools April 23. The carnivals provide schools with a fun fundraising event where 100% of the proceeds go to the schools. The carnivals are made possible by a Saguache County Sales Tax Grant and Amicas Pizza.

Next we will be assisting Neighbors Helping Neighbors with their annual Cabin Fever Show March 28. Come enjoy the show. Also coming up in April will be the Shakespeare Festival and Bazillion Capoeira Martial Arts.

Our continued success is made possible through individual donations, our sponsors and grants from Saguache County and Colorado Creative Industries. Our sponsors are The Crestone Eagle, Orient Land Trust, Joyful Journey Hot Springs, Manitou Institute, the Sand Dunes Swimming Pool, San Luis Valley Federal and Sangre de Cristo Real Estate. From Salida we have First Street Flooring, Amicas Pizza and the Heart of the Rockies Medical Center.
