Upcycle is RAFT’s primary fundraising event.  When you attend, you will enjoy an unexpectedly festive, interactive environment where you, along with business leaders, philanthropists, and top-notch educators, will experience the power and fun of hands-on learning. Last year, our RAFT community raised a quarter of a million dollars to support teachers and students in Colorado!
