TOSC hosts annual Gala Aug. 17 at Rock Ledge Ranch

       The Trails and Open Space Coalition (TOSC) will host its 10th Annual Gala in the Garden August 17 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at Rock Ledge Ranch in the Garden of the Gods.
       Festivities will include catered barbecue dinner, bluegrass music by the String Dudes, beverages and a silent auction (including a chance to win a bike ride with Olympian/world champion cyclist Alison Dunlap).
       “The evening will not only offer great entertainment but also a chance to catch up with old friends and make new acquaintances,” said Dan Cleveland, executive director of TOSC. “It will give you the chance to tour ranch facilities and its historic structures.”
       Proceeds will go to TOSC, a private, non-profit organization which local citizens formed in 1987 as an advocacy group for open space, trails, bikeways and greenways in the Pikes Peak region.
       The cost is $35 per person, with special rates available for groups of eight or more. To make reservations, call 633-6884 or register online at
