More about this campaign

Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch has been owned and operated by the Jessup family since 1946. During those 67 years, two generations of Jessups have warmly welcomed thousands of families, couples and individuals for memory-making vacations, weddings, anniversaries, horse-back rides, picnics, reunions and special holiday meals. It has also hosted innumerable business meetings and corporate events.

The organizer of this fundraiser has always had Sylvan Dale close to his Hart. His grandmother, Joyce, worked on the ranch as a kitchen manager and has had several family Thanksgivings. The Jessups were kind to Joyce and helped her when sick.image5_0006 - Cropjpg The Jessups planted an apple tree in honor of Joyce in 2000.

When it came for the organizer to have the wedding at the ranch in August, the staff and the Jessups always found ways to make the day that would bring joy to the families. The wedding was held at the Jessup Lodge, which was right next to the Big Thompson River. It was a day to remember for everyone.

Dinning HalljpgOn September 12th, 2013, Sylvan Dale was badly damaged--but not totally destroyed--by the 1,000 year Big Thompson Canyon Flood. The Jessup family is determined to rebuild its operations as quickly as possible so it can once again share the beauty of Sylvan Dale with others.

Our start goal is 50 t-shirts. Though if we sell more, the more money will go to the ranch. The t-shirts will ship in time for Christmas. A great gift for anyone. If you would like to give more, follow this link to their main fundraiser.

The Jessups cowboy up for Joyce to help her in a time of need. Now it’s time for us to cowboy up for them. With your help, Sylvan Dale will return, better than ever!
