SCARPA North America and Urban Climber will host a fundraiser to help celebrate the Access Fund’s 15th anniversary at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2006.

The event, which will take place at the SCARPA booth from 4-6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11, will offer the chance to catch up on the Access Fund’s most recent work on behalf of all climbers. It will also offer the chance to become an Access Fund member at a reduced rate.

Along with beer, pretzels and socializing, there will be a raffle-fundraiser featuring Access Fund memberships, gear from SCARPA, as well as gear from numerous other industry supporters. All proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Access Fund’s work.
