Hangin’ with Jerry raises $2,800 for Routt County Search and Rescue

Nonprofit group relies on donors for most of its funding

Steamboat Pilot & Today

The Barley, ninesevenzero and Powder Tools’ annual Hangin’ with Jerry party Saturday, Dec. 18, raised $2,800 for Routt County Search and Rescue, according to party organizers.

On off-road vehicles, riding snowmobiles or by foot, the nonprofit group of volunteers responds to all kinds of emergency calls, ranging from rescuing badly injured recreationists to giving someone who’s become disorientated directions back to their car.

Search and Rescue responds at any time of year, at all times of day and in any kind weather, free of charge. The majority of Search and Rescue’s funding comes from donations.

With raffles, a costume contest and more, Hangin’ with Jerry party organizers said the event got a nice boost from its sponsors, and fun was had.

They dropped off a check with the Search and Rescue group this week.
