Mark Golden, Honored Guest at Rogers Center Spring Frolic 2019

March 21, 2019

Friends of Rogers will host its eighth annual Spring Frolic fundraising event for Rogers Environmental Education Center on Thursday, March 21 from 6-9 p.m. at Magro’s Banquet Hall in Sherburne.

Special guests this year are Mark Golden, CEO of Golden Artist Colors, a New Berlin-based company that is a long-time supporter of Rogers and of environmental conservation; and the Chenango Bird Club, which began meeting in the Bird Cabin at Rogers when the club was founded in 1983 and has maintained offered presentations for the public ever since.

Mark Golden will focus his presentation on the company’s effort and commitment to caring for each other, its customers, and community as well as the environment. “We are located in one of the most beautiful rural areas of Upstate New York in the middle of rolling hills, dotted by farms and families. The commitment to our stewardship for this gift of resources will hopefully support our employee owners and their successors for many generations to come.”

Spring Frolic is the primary fundraising event for Friends of Rogers, attracting nearly two hundred community supporters. Proceeds raised from the event fund over 5 percent of the organization’s annual operating budget, allowing Friends of Rogers to continue providing outstanding educational opportunities that excite, inspire, and motivate people of all ages to enjoy, understand, appreciate, and protect our natural environment.
