(02-09-2011)

Own a piece of San Luis Valley history. Southern Colorado (SoCo) Film Commission and Monte Vista Chamber of Commerce are raffling tickets to raise operating funds for SoCo Film Commission. One lucky person will win a framed, Harrison Ford autographed, "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" poster.

Tickets are $5 each and may be purchased at 1911 Main Street Hotel in Antonito, ASC Community Partnerships in Alamosa, and Colorado Gators Reptile Park in Mosca, Colo. The signed Indiana Jones poster will be on display throughout the valley, during February and March, and raffle tickets may be purchased at any location currently housing the poster. The raffle will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, April 1, during the "Filming in the Valley" exhibit reception starting at 4 p.m. at ASC Community Partnerships, on the corner of Main Street and Edgemont Blvd in Alamosa, Colo. All proceeds benefit the Southern Colorado Film Commission in their mission to bring more film and television activity to the San Luis Valley.

The Southern Colorado Film Commission, a non-profit organization created with the goal of making Southern Colorado a more attractive destination for film and television productions, have recent success, with two episodes of the Spike TV program "What If?" being produced in the San Luis Valley. A SoCo representative will attend the International Film Locations Expo in Los Angeles again this year to promote Southern Colorado as an ideal filming location. Film and Television are relatively clean industries, with a small carbon footprint, and they bring a large amount of money to the communities they visit.
