The Lucky Bucket

The Lucky Bucket has been part of the mine tour for many years. Take a tour and rub the bucket for luck then put money into it to make a wish. We have heard from many about the luck they have received from this bucket. Some people say that their wish came true because they passed the test, were no longer ill, were able to have a child, fell in love with the person of their dream and the happy comments are endless. In return for the luck that the bucket has brought so many, we have passed on the luck to Easterseals by donating the money given to the Lucky Bucket.

Each year a donation is made to Easterseals  in memory of our brother Victor. Victor had down-syndrome. He attended the Easterseals Rocky Mountain Village Camp near Idaho Springs several times when he was young. Victor really enjoyed attending this camp which is specially designed for special needs individuals. Victor passed away on August 2, 2017 at the age of 41. He taught love to those who were fortunate enough to meet him. The love he shared continues to live on through the generous donations made to the lucky bucket. Victor's father, Alvin, was also instrumental in helping Easter Seal's camp by constructing a nature trail for the camp. He also made may monetary contributions to Easterseals throughout the years with the support of donations made through the Lucky Bucket.
