Event Results + Need Wednesday Volunteers!

Sunday, October 14, 2018
SVGD Volunteers:
     I've got a couple updates on the results from recent events that I thought you'd like to hear.  The BBQ & Blues event that we assisted at a couple months ago raised $35,500 for Habitat for Humanity!  The check was presented to Habitat this past month.  Also, the Fall Membership Drive that we assisted at a week ago for KUVO  public radio station did raise $105,000 in pledges to help keep the radio station going!  Thanks to those of you that helped us raise money for these great non profits.
      We did have a full group of volunteers yesterday to help the American Lung Assn. with their registration & T-shirt/bib hand out for the Run the Rocks event!  Unfortunately, the event was cancelled today due to the weather but they are planning on holding it next Sunday.  They were concerned about driving in the weather as well as running on the course today.
       WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS WEDNESDAY EVENING'S GLOW IN THE GARDENS EVENT FOR THE DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS!  The weather actually is supposed to be much better on Wednesday so I know it will be a fun & spooky time.  It's time to get ready for Halloween!  I really need volunteers to sign up by tomorrow (Monday) morning or I will have to cancel this event.  Please sign up soon if you are able to help.  I don't want to let them down!
        Also, we are considering having a Thanksgiving Dinner potluck again.  We've done this several times and it has always been well attended.  We have several members who are not able to go to be with their families on Thanksgiving & enjoy having a place to go and meeting some great people.  At this point, I'm asking if anyone in our group would like to host the event at their home.  Please let me know!  You wouldn't have to cook, just have enough room that we could have a group of people (usually around 12) at your home for the Holiday.  Please contact me if you're interested so we can discuss the possibility.  Thank you!

Glow at the Gardens benefiting the Denver Botanic Gardens, Wed. Oct. 17th, 5-10PM, 6 Volunteers are needed. We will be Activity Assistants.  We will greet guests and help with the nightly activities, such as greeting at the storyteller area, assisting with craft activities and the Spooky Gardens!  What fun!  The Gardens dress up for Halloween with luminaria-lined pathways, spooky lighting displays and hundreds of carved, glowing gourds. Using all real pumpkins harvested from local farms, their pumpkin artists push the boundaries of traditional pumpkin carving to create larger-than-life sculptures, dense displays of jack-o-lanterns and ornately detailed showpiece pumpkins. In addition to the pumpkin sculptures and creepy atmosphere, enjoy a wide array of activities.  What a good way to get in the mood for Halloween while supporting a great non profit!

Serving Lunch at The Denver Rescue Mission, Sat. Oct. 27th, 10:30AM-1:30PM, 6 Volunteers are needed. We will be helping to serve lunch at their Lawrence Street shelter which is the Mission's most well-known & most recognizable location.  It provides emergency care to the poor and homeless.  It is open 365 days a year and offers 200 beds and
