Charles Smith, Peak to Peak. The 2019 Scholarship Benefit was hosted by Barb and Roy Stewart at the Last Shot on Sunday, May  19, 2019, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Delicious food, desserts, handmade salads, and young Gilpin thespians spinning out numerous flavors of cotton candy, all combined for a successful benefit dinner.
