Need Denim & Diamonds Gala Volunteers + New Event!

Monday, November 05, 2018
SVGD Volunteers:
      Fall weather is here and I'm sure we are all starting to think about Thanksgiving!  I have 4 great events on the SVGD web site to help put you in the Thanksgiving spirit where you can make a difference in our community.  I just put the Thanksgiving Food Distribution event on the web site so you can now sign up to help.
      Also, WE STILL NEED 4 VOLUNTEERS TO HELP THIS SATURDAY AT THE DENIM & DIAMONDS GALA helping the single mothers & children so that they are not homeless.  Please sign up soon if you can help at this event.
      We will be having some fun at the Yappy Hour for the Dumb Friends League where you can even bring your well-mannered dog & have a photo taken if you'd like.  I'll be there but I don't think my two cats would enjoy the experience!  Also, please join us at the SVGD Thanksgiving Dinner!  Details for all four of these November events are given below.

Please sign up on to this assist at these events.


Denim & Diamonds Gala benefiting the Bridges of Hope, Sat. Nov. 10th, 4:30-8:30PM, (WE STILL NEED 4 VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS SATURDAY!) 6 Volunteers are needed. We will be helping with check-in, registration, and a little with the live & silent auction.  Volunteers will be provided with a plated dinner (just like the $100-$850 guests) and will have a break.  Bridges of Hope partners with single mothers and their children to provide rental assistance to prevent homelessness.  The event is being held in Lakewood at an Event Center that many use for weddings & special events.  It resembles a European Vineyard with rock arches.  We will be inside with a great view of a small lake!  Cocktail attire is fine but with the "Denim & Diamonds" theme it is fine to wear jeans and a fancy shirt.  They will be having cocktails and live music also.  Our volunteers are invited to stay to dance and enjoy the event which ends around 11:30PM.

Thanksgiving Food Distribution for the Jeffco Action Center, Sunday, November 18th, 8-10:30AM. 6 Volunteers are needed.  We will once again be helping the low-income families in Jefferson County so that they are able to have a Thanksgiving Dinner for their family.  The event is actually at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving.  Low income families will receive a voucher prior to the event.  This event will help approx. 5200 families!!  We will collect the vouchers and then hand out boxes that contain the fixings for them to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for their household.  The families will also receive a certificate for a turkey or ham at their local grocery store.  We have helped at this event before.  It is such a good feeling to help the families that would not be able to have a Thanksgiving dinner at their homes.  They are so very grateful for the assistance!  Before you have your Thanksgiving, please help those who are hoping to have one.  

Yappy Hour benefiting the Denver Dumb Friends League, Sat., Nov. 17th, 2-4PM, Everyone is welcome but we do need to register how many are coming prior to the event.  Please sign up by Monday, November 12th so we can let them know how many are coming.  Join us at a brewery near Broadway/Hampden for their "Paws to be Thankful!" Yappy Hour.  Start a new tradition with family and friends, and give thanks for our furry friends.  This is a dog friendly event (must be leashed, well behaved & kept in hand) and raise a pint for homeless pets. You are welcome to invite friends just let us know how many. A portion of the beer sales benefit the homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League.  You can also get a photo with you and your pup by Denver's A-List Top Dog Photographer, Sean McNeil for a $25 donation or purchase a collectible glass while supplies last if you like.  You do not have to bring a dog to the event though!  Every once in awhile we do a social event that benefits a good cause.  Our Going Out for a Good Cause Meetup group is being invited as well as volunteers from many organizations & companies.  I hope to see you there for some pre-Thanksgiving fun! 

SVGD Thanksgiving Dinner, Thurs., Nov. 22, 1:30PM-approx. 5:30PM, We will be having a Thanksgiving Dinner again for our members at one of our member's homes in Centennial.  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 (or at least don't have afternoon plans) & enjoy having a place to go and meet some great people.  SVGD will provide the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy.  Each of the attendees will be bringing a potluck dish to pass such as an appetizer, salad, bread, vegetable, or dessert.  After you sign up I will contact you to figure out what you'd like to bring.  We try to coordinate so that we do have a variety and plenty to eat.  Attendees also will bring whatever they wish to drink (we, of course, will have water.)  You are responsible to drink responsibly.  If you'd like to share Thanksgiving with us we'd love to have you!  We all have so very much for which to be Thankful!!
