Alpine Gardens Donates Outdoor Living Package to CSU Ram Good Time Auction
Colorado State University fans run rampant throughout Fort Collins. Whether you’re a proud alum, a proud parent, a current student, or just call Foco home and want to support the rams, there is no shortage of love for the green and gold in this community. Every year, the Ram Good Time Auction is held to raise money for student-athlete scholarships. The 2019 auction was the 38th annual and was held on April 13 at Canvas Stadium.
Alpine Gardens was thrilled to participate in the Ram Good Time Auction this year with a donation to the live auction. Alpine Gardens, with donated materials from Denver Brass and Copper, Basalite, Fossil Creek Nursery, and Alliance Lighting, provided an ‘Outdoor Living Package’. This package included a paver patio of 250 square feet, an outdoor kitchen including a Basalite Neccessories Grand Island Bar with a BBQ grill, a low voltage LED landscape lighting system, and plants and mulch from Fossil Creek Nursery. The package of course included consultation services, delivery, and installation.
Alpine Gardens has been in the Fort Collins community for over 40 years. Being family and locally owned, the company of course loves to support and give back to the community. Many members of the Alpine Gardens team have also attended CSU over the years including most of their management staff. President of Alpine Gardens, Jack Fetig, received his degree from CSU in Forest Biology. Nate Fetig (General Manager and Vice President) as well as his wife Heidi (Office Manager) both received degrees in Environmental Horticulture from CSU. Kris Nylander (Sales Manager and Senior Designer) as well as Mark Stock (Commercial Division Manager) also received degrees in Landscape Design and Construction Management from CSU. It should come as no surprise that these individuals helping to manage the landscaping company continue to offer their support of the local university.
“It feels really special to be able to support CSU and their student athletes in this manner. Being involved year after year, we’ve been able to witness just how meaningful and impactful giving back can be. We’ve been able to meet so many great members of the Ram Family while investing in tomorrow’s leaders,” Kris Nylander said.
This year’s Ram Good Time Auction was a wild success. The event has raised over $7 million for CSU student athletes since its inception. If you missed the festivities this year, don’t worry! The auction will be back in full force next year.
