Southeast Health Group’s March 30th Round Up to Feature the Overton Road Band

It’s gonna be a HOT time in the OLD town of Lamar as Southeast Health Group holds its 4th annual Round Up event to support mental health, substance use disorder and wellness services in southeastern Colorado. This year’s event will be held on Saturday evening, March 30, 2013, from 6:00 – 10:00 PM at the Elk’s Lodge in Lamar. The evening will include a Party Dip Competition with cash prizes, plus hot appetizers and a cash bar. Kick up your heels with live country rock music by the Overton Road Band.

“We want to invite the community out for a night of fun to celebrate and support the work we are doing,” said Southeast Health Group’s Chief Operating Officer, JC Carrica. “We put together a video that highlights the partnerships that have helped us to provide integrated care in southeastern Colorado.” Southeast Health Group has been recognized nationally for the innovative quality of its programs and is currently integrated at High Plains Community Health Center, Valley Wide Health Systems, Prowers Medical Center, 16th Judicial District Drug Court, Pioneer Nursing Home and the Lamar High School WHELL Clinic.

The performance of the night will be a band that was named after the road in Pueblo where the guys practice: If you’re traveling south through Pueblo, Colorado and for some strange reason you find yourself driving parallel on a road east of I-25 you just could be on Overton Road. And if you crank down the radio, back off the pedal and hang your head out the window you just might hear some great sounds coming from a small enclave that hosts the band’s all night rehearsals. Overton Road has played the Colorado State Fair; the Pueblo Chile Festival; and the Boats, Bands & BBQ on the Pueblo Riverwalk. In May, they have been invited to perform for the soldiers at Ft. Bliss. By day, the six musicians are disguised as a practicing dentist, a contractor with a flair for artistic welding, an insurance man, an automotive genius, a marketing guru with an Emmy winning documentary to his credit, and a hospital Information Auditor. By night, they transform into Pueblo’s best country rock music band.

Adding to the HEAT of the evening will be a Party Dip Competition featuring fresh salsas, quesos, guacamoles and other party dips. “Anyone can enter the competition,” says Crystal Stewart, event organizer. “We want to motivate all the great home cooks in the region and have a chance to taste their best recipes.” The Lamar Elks will also be serving meatballs, wings and BBQ ribs.

“We’ve got some unbelievable items on our silent auction this year,” said Nancy King, Development Director for Southeast Health Group. The list includes a guided day trip for two from CityWild for world-class whitewater rafting between Buena Vista and Salida; a Denver Nuggets t-shirt autographed by the entire 2012 team and coaches; and a night at the “Movie Manor” in Monte Vista—a Best Western hotel attached to a drive-in theater where you can watch movies from your room. A rare item in the auction will be a signed collection of prints by Montana artist Fred Fellows, entitled “Winchester on the Frontier,” which was dedicated in 1968 to the 2nd Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms. Also watch for tickets to ride the San Luis Valley Railroad, golfing at the Cattails in Alamosa, original artwork and photography, Pampered Chef items, handmade quilts, and more!

Individual tickets for the event are $25, and couples are $40. Party Dip contestants may enter in as many categories of dips as they wish, for $5 per recipe. Judging will take place in four categories: Salsa, Queso, Guacamole and Other Dip. Please call Crystal Stewart at (719) 383-5450 to purchase tickets or register your recipe for the competition.
