AlamogordoTownNews.com Roadrunner Emporium Donates to COPE
Roadrunner Emporium under the direction of owners Rene Sepulveda and Chris Edwards partnered with our over 70 in-house artists to create decorative trees for charity via its showcase “festival of trees.”
This year Roadrunner Emporium at 928 Néw York Avenue is decked out with trees on the roof, trees in the window displays and the largest live tree on New York Avenue along with a series of table top trees all dedicated with raising awareness and funds for local charities.
The first of the multiple charities that are benefiting from this effort to be awarded a check is the local community service organization called COPE. Cope is granted a $500.00 gift for the wonderful work they do in our community. Accepting the check on behalf of COPE was board Vice President Judith Pingle accepting from Roadrunner Emporium co-owner Chris Edwards.
Roadrunner Emporium is honored to be in a position to help support multiple nonprofits this year thanks to the community support of our community of artists within our collaborative.
