On Tuesday, August 9, El Pomar Foundation presented Co-founder of Otter Products, LLC and founder of OtterCares Foundation Nancy Richardson with the annual Julie Penrose Award, an award which honors philanthropic women within the state of Colorado. The award connects these women with the legacy of the Foundation’s co-founder Julie Penrose, who supported the arts, education, health and civic ventures across the state throughout her life.
June 2022 marked 20 years of El Pomar's Wildland Fire Fund supporting firefighting agencies throughout Colorado.
