Dance the night away while rais­ing funds for a good cause

Tempo - - CONTENTS - By Ari­ana Kramer

Ev­ery Fri­day and Satur­day night, the Sage­brush Inn fea­tures live mu­sic in its leg­endary cantina. This week­end two lo­cal bands will be us­ing the venue to raise spirits and funds for the Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion. So, if you’re look­ing for some fun this week­end, you can brush up on your dance steps and sup­port a good cause.

Chris Morel Sr. is a well­known Taos painter as well as a mu­si­cian who plays a blend of coun­try, blues and rock ‘n’ roll. He’ll play with Char­lie Woehler and the 518s on Fri­day night (March 30).

The Bad Boys are a lo­cal rock and Span­ish mu­sic band that have played to­gether since the 1980s. They will take the stage on Satur­day (March 31). Both bands will per­form from 8-11 p.m. No cover is charged.

Both con­certs are part of a week­long se­ries of events to launch the 365 Grand Club: Taos Edi­tion and sup­port the Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion. All of this week, the Sage­brush Inn is of­fer­ing a per­cent­age of its bev­er­age and restaurant sales to Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion.

Fri­day and Satur­day, an all­night happy hour lasts from 4-11 p.m. with 20 per­cent of pro­ceeds also go­ing to the foun­da­tion. Prizes, in­clud­ing a six-month 365 Grand Club mem­ber­ship, will also be raf­fled.

“The week of March 2631, Sage­brush Inn and 365 Grand Club will be host­ing mul­ti­ple events that ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity and raise money for Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion,” Alanna Marohn said. Marohn is the Sage­brush Inn’s gen­eral man­ager. “Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion works di­rectly with non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions in the area to pro­vide needed re­sources for the com­mu­nity and im­prove op­por­tu­ni­ties.”

Marohn said the Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion was cho­sen as a ben­e­fi­ciary be­cause of the im­pact they have in the com­mu­nity. “They are a well-rounded or­ga­ni­za­tion,” she said. “We thought they’d be a good fit.”

The Sage­brush Inn was pur­chased by Time­less Man­age­ment in De­cem­ber. Marohn said the new man­age­ment, which is based

in Colorado Springs, is mak­ing ef­forts to re­con­nect the Sage­brush Inn & Suites with the wider Taos com­mu­nity.

This in­cludes launch­ing the 365 Grand Club: Taos Edi­tion. The club al­ready op­er­ates in Colorado Springs. Now, they are ex­pand­ing into the Taos area.

Marohn ex­plained, “365 Grand Club is a no-contract monthly mem­ber­ship that gives card­hold­ers perks in Taos and Colorado Springs, in­clud­ing 10 per­cent off part­ner­ing busi­nesses, such as Casa de Valdez Restaurant, High Al­ti­tude Spa and Turquoise Tours.”

In ad­di­tion, the 365 Grand Club will hold mix­ers in Taos sev­eral times a year, fea­tur­ing lo­cal part­ner­ing

busi­nesses. Its first was a “Lo­cal Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Day,” a free com­mu­nity bar­be­cue at the Sage­brush Inn & Suites in part­ner­ship with Ace Hard­ware Wed­nes­day (March 28).

“365 Grand Club op­er­ates off the prin­ci­ple that the more suc­cess­ful busi­nesses in the com­mu­nity sur­round­ing Sage­brush are, the more suc­cess­ful Sage­brush will be,” Marohn said.

Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion Di­rec­tor Lisa O’Brien said the or­ga­ni­za­tion is hon­ored to be se­lected as a re­cip­i­ent of the Sage­brush Inn’s fundrais­ing ef­forts this week. She said the funds raised will be used for sup­port­ing the work the foun­da­tion does in the com­mu­nity.

The foun­da­tion was es­tab­lished in 1998. Its stated mis­sion is to con­nect “peo­ple and op­por­tu­ni­ties, gen­er­at­ing re­sources to build a more cre­ative, car­ing, and thriv­ing com­mu­nity.”

The foun­da­tion re­cently moved into a new lo­ca­tion and in­creased its staff. “We’ve had an amaz­ing last year and a half,” O’Brien said.

In ad­di­tion to sup­port­ing the Taos Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion this week, Marohn said, “We will also be celebrating ‘First Re­spon­der Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Week’ by dis­count­ing an ad­di­tional 10 per­cent off all food and bev­er­ages to any­one who shows their badge.”
