2014 Rocky Mtn Showdown – Colorado vs. CSU

This year the Rocky Mountain Showdown will be on Friday, August 29th with a 9:00 p.m. EST kickoff.

As always, we will be watching the game at North Star (222 Friend St, Boston, MA – located just off of the Orange/Green line at North Station) with the Colorado State Alumni of Boston.

New to this year, we are going to have a charity challenge!

2014 Rocky Mountain Showdown Charity Challenge

Boston Buffs take on the Boston Ram Network

Show your support and generosity by helping out the nationally renowned Prison Book Program. Come to our joint watch party on Friday, August 29th at 9 p.m. at the North Star bar (222 Friend St., Boston) to cheer on the Colorado Buffaloes and win the charity challenge.

You can participate in the challenge by donating money to be used for stamps/mailing supplies/books (check made out to “Prison Book Program”), or donating your new or gently used books (see below for donation guidelines). Please bring checks or books to the bar at the watch party! If you cannot attend the watch party but would like to help with the charity challenge, please contact Kat Vierzba at boston@alumni.colorado.edu.

The Prison Book Program mails free books to people in prison to support their educational, vocational and personal development and to help them avoid returning to prison after their release. PBP is a 501c3 charitable organization since 1972 and is based out of Quincy, MA. More information about this organization is available at http://www.prisonbookprogram.org/.

Book donation guidelines: paperback (fiction or non-fiction) books either new or gently used. Some types of books in great demand include English dictionaries, mysteries, westerns, trades (ie. woodworking, automotive, business, etc.), and health. Browse: http://www.prisonbookprogram.org/donatesection/donate-books/ to see complete list of book needs and guidelines.
