FORT COLLINS, Colo.  – The UCHealth and Northern Colorado Foundation, which philanthropically supports and promotes UCHealth programs in northern Colorado, is proud to be hosting the 37th annual Spring Benefit event May 6 at The Ranch in Loveland.

The theme of the event this year is “Emergency Services: Responding Across the Range” and funds raised will benefit UCHealth first-responder teams in northern Colorado. The event includes a cocktail reception, live music, dinner, dancing, and live and silent auctions, as well as a program highlighting the lifesaving work of UCHealth’s Emergency Medical Services.

The foundation is excited to announce that Spring Benefit also will include a headline performance by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Will Hoge out of Nashville. Hoge has both country and rock-and-roll roots and received a Grammy nomination for co-writing the Eli Young Band’s No. 1 hit “Even if it Breaks Your Heart.” His signature raspy bellow and incredible live performances have drawn crowds from coast to coast. Fresh off a European tour, Hoge and his band will be rocking the Spring Benefit crowd with a rare northern Colorado appearance.

“We are delighted to partner with our Emergency Medical Services teams to raise awareness and resources to support their work,” said Erica Siemers, senior director of the PVH and MCR Foundation. “Spring Benefit is a unique opportunity for our community to engage with our providers and first responders and to enjoy an evening full of fun and entertainment.”

Spring Benefit is presented by First National Bank. Sponsorships and tickets are available by visiting supportinghealth.org or calling the foundation at 970.237.7408. A variety of sponsorship packages are available. Tickets are $150 per person or $75 for young professionals ages 35 and younger.
