It’s been one full year since “biblical rain” hit Northern Colorado and devastated entire communities, washed away hay, destroyed pastures, stranded people and animals, and left families with nothing–not even the ability to keep their horses and livestock fed. Immediately after the floods, CHF deployed volunteers and distributed emergency hay to Northern Colorado horse and livestock owners for more than four months while they struggled to recover. Knowing they had food for their animals meant one less thing Northern Colorado “flood families” had to worry about. When all was said and done, CHF distributed more than 200 tons of emergency hay to Northern Colorado. Please help us continue this important relief work!

Artist Judy Brunko's original oil painting. This year we are pleased to offer an original oil painting, 14″ x 11″, fully framed from artist Judith Brunko. VALUE: $650.

Judith Brunko began her art career in 1982, studying with Kim English, Ramone Kelly and others at Rocky Mountain College of Art. She then went on to pursue her bachelor’s degree. Her art background led her into architecture, finding it the perfect blend of art and science. In 2007, Judith took workshops with Don Sahli, Carolyn Anderson, and Tim Diebler. These workshops re-ignited her passion for oil painting. Judith loves the challenge of impressionist representational art and the pursuit of capturing light as it defines objects; whether landscape, still life, or figure painting. She is drawn to the human figure as a form to evict and portray thought, emotion, and feeling. Judith has found that creating the structure of the human form on canvas has many similarities to designing and building architecture; both being visual expressions of physical beauty. You can see Judith’s art at and her architecture at

Thank you, Judith! We are grateful for your generous silent auction donation!
