Seasons’ annual “Burning Down the House” fundraiser donates all proceeds to The Hundred Club of Durango, holding to the mission of providing financial assistance to families of public safety officers and firefighters who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty, and providing resources to enhance their safety and welfare.
A full house enjoyed the festivities, and for any patrons who found the meal unseasonably warm, the tables were decorated with water pistols in the shape of miniature fire extinguishers.
Members of the Durango Fire Protection District circulated among the guests and a fire truck parked on the street in front of Seasons provided an air of authenticity.
