This week, Battlement to the Bells Anti-Trafficking Task Force (BATT), an organization sponsored by Klein Frank, P.C., received a $10,000 donation from Sopris 100 Women Who Care.
BATT is a community charitable organization fighting to end human trafficking in the state of Colorado. The Klein Frank Foundation, co-founded by Klein Frank, P.C. attorneys Beth Klein and Carrie Frank, was the initial funder for this task force, donating money for their 2019 Summit and all logistical funding in 2019 and the fiscal sponsor for BATT. Attorney Beth Klein also serves as the Vice President of BATT.
The Sopris 100 is a woman’s donor group in the Roaring Fork Valley. On Tuesday, February 25, they held a charity event at Old Thompson Barn at River Valley Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado. A group of women were invited to gather, and each attendee was asked to contribute $100. This money was collected into a pool of funds to be given to a local charity, cause, family, or individual chosen by the attendees at the event.
A number of causes were presented—three were then drawn and discussed before a favorite was selected to be given the whole sum, which ended up totaling $10,000! Attorney Beth Klein delivered the pitch on behalf of BATT, and the task force was selected by the Sopris 100 and awarded the $10k prize.
Attorney Beth Klein, Gina Stryker, and Sierra Aldrich Yampa High accepted the award on behalf of BATT. We are eternally grateful to the Sopris 100 for this gift and look forward to using it to continue the fight against human trafficking.
