Once a year, legends and newcomers alike don their finest dresses and suits, and come together to celebrate the climbing community. During this special weekend new friends are made, old friends reconnect, and we raise funds vital to the Club’s work.
We are incredibly excited to announce Kris McDivitt Tompkins will be the keynote at the 2020 Annual Benefit Dinner in Denver, Colorado. Former CEO of Patagonia and current president of Tompkins Conservation, Kris is a true champion for the earth. She and her late husband Doug Tompkins turned millions of acres across Chile and Argentina into National Parks in an effort to restore and re-wild landscapes. Most recently, Kris completed the largest private land donation in history, with over one million acres going towards creating or expanding ten national parks in Chile. To date, Tompkins Conservation has helped conserve more than 14.2 million acres.
Mark your calendars for this special night and rare chance to hear from Kris. Registration opens in December 2019.
