Organization helps people at any ability level enjoy outdoor recreation

It’s coming up on Thursday September 29th: Reach For the Stars, the dinner and auction held each year to benefit Common Ground Outdoor Adventures. Program Director Bryce Patten says Utah State University Men’s Basketball Coach Stew Morrill and his wife Vickie will serve as honorary hosts for the event which will be held at the Riverwoods Conference Center. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Patten said all the proceeds will go to fund programs for Common Ground, a non-profit organization. “Our mission is to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to get out and enjoy outdoor recreation,” Patten explained. “We provide the financial assistance and the man power to make that happen for them. “It doesn’t matter what disability anyone has or what ability level they’re at, we can make that work. They can go canoeing, or cycling, or rock climbing, white water rafting, any of that. We can make that happen.” Patten says a social hour and silent auction will start at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7:45. He says there are some great auction items and to make reservations people can call 713-0288.
