Honoring the Legacy Campaign Reaches Halfway Mark

Honoring the Legacy Campaign Raises $50 Million

DENVER, July 25, 2019  –Pete Coors, Honoring the Legacy Campaign Chairman, recently announced reaching his goal of securing 200 plus donors for the capital campaign. The campaign now has surpassed the $50 million dollar mark — reaching the halfway point of the total $100 million that needs to be raised.

The goal of the campaign is to give future generations a place for their families to come enjoy Stock Show for another 100 years. Which is why Pete has interviewed many exhibitors like cattleman Brett Barber.

The Barber Ranch has been attending Stock Show for more than 50 years and plans to continue that tradition for many years to come in the new facilities.

About Honoring the Legacy … Building the Future Campaign

The $100 million Honoring the Legacy campaign supports four major new facilities at the heart of the nearly billion-dollar urban renewal project to expand today’s National Western Complex into a year-round National Western Center for education, entertainment and agricultural innovation. Those four facilities include the Legacy Building, the Ron and Cille Williams Yards, the Sue Anschutz-Rodgers Livestock Center, and the Equestrian Center. The expansion and development of these new facilities will greatly enhance the visitor experience, provide the capacity to host a wider array of events throughout the year, and support increased attendance at other National Western Center facilities, both existing and future.
