"It will be fun to be back out at the drive-in," said Fred Jacobs, Senior Manager of Media Relations and Sponsorships at Ent Credit Union, in our "Tuned In to NoCo" interview. "We're really looking forward to it. It is a great step back out into normalcy."

General admission and VIP tickets are on sale now here. General tickets include complimentary concession and adult drink vouchers.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Larimer County Child Care Fund, which provides scholarships that help local families access affordable child care. The event will also feature a documentary showcasing this community need.

"The cost of child care in Larimer County exceeds $1,200 per child per month. Our hope and intention is that these funds will go to...make child care more affordable for working families," said Deirdre Sullivan, President and CEO of United Way of Larimer County. "We would just encourage everyone to come out. It's going to be a great time."
