The Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF) would like to thank everyone that came out to support the 11th Annual Black Tie & Boots Dinner Gala honoring Dana Holland, with the prestigious lifetime achievement “Rock Award” and raising money “To enhance the future health and use of the Rubicon Trail, while ensuring responsible motorized year-round trail access.”

We would like to extend a huge thank you to the 300 guests, some of which sponsored, whom attended and bid on some fabulous auction items. We had some special volunteers and contributions from- Lacey & Vickie Stiles, Kelly DeWolf, Lindsay Linson, Sara Warden, Kelly Holden, Central Valley Community Bank, and Jack Sweeney our Auctioneer.

The Rubicon Trail Foundation had their most successful Black Tie & Boots raising over $48,000.00.
