SVGD Volunteers:  
      I just put another event on our SVGD web site for which you can now register!  We will be helping the MS Walk on Saturday, May 4that their Registration Tent!  This is a new event for us and is for a very worthwhile cause.  I hope to see you there!
      Meanwhile, we can still use some volunteers for this weekend!  We can use 1 more volunteer at Cafe 180 on Saturday and 4 more people at the Cherry Creek Sneak beer booth on Sunday! The runners & walkers at the Cherry Creek Sneak all get a free coupon for a beer after they finish.  They are a great group & we'll be busy as we become a very popular booth after the races.  It is such a fun event with so many activities happening!  We'll be very short-handed without the 4 additional volunteers so please sign up soon if you can help!  Thank you!

 APRIL EVENTS:

Cafe 180 benefiting those who can't pay for their meals, Sat.,April 27th 12:30-3PM, (We can still use 1 volunteer on Saturday) 5 total Volunteers will be assisting to serve customers, help prepare food, yes, even help clean up!  Cafe 180's mission is to reduce hunger in the community by providing meals to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.  Not only do they serve up delicious food, they serve up respect, dignity & self sufficiency.  We helped them a few times and really enjoyed the experience.  Plus we each had a great meal when we completed our shift!  They say:  "we've all relied on the kindness of others at certain times in our lives... For those who have enough, it's a chance to eat well and do well. For those who are struggling, it's a chance to eat in a dignified manner.  We're not about hand outs.  We're about giving people a hand up..."  Volunteers need to wear comfortable shoes & anyone with long hair needs to have it pulled back.  The group will have cafe' shirts to wear when they get there. The location for the event is near Hampden/Broadway.   What a great opportunity!

Cherry Creek Sneak, Sun.April 28th, 8:30AM-Noon. (WE STILL NEED 4 VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS SUNDAY!!) 6 total Volunteers will be assisting. We will be beer pourers for this event. Many of our patrons will be the runners in the event who receive a beer certificate.  This event is  such a well-known Denver tradition.  The race is on 1st Avenue, in the Cherry Creek area.  They also have a great after party with a costume contest, music, vendors, etc.  Since we will be "beer pourers" we won't have to be there super early like the volunteers for the registration etc. (6AM for them!)  The Cherry Creek Sneak offers run/walk courses for all levels.  They partner with the We Don't Waste non profit so that food goes to those who need it rather than landfills.  The Sneak’s after-race festivities have turned into Denver’s biggest block party—post-race fun draws nearly 20,000 racers, friends, and family for music, cool vendors, a costume contest,  and a Kids’ Fun Zone sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. Proceeds benefit Food Bank of the Rockies, a non-profit organization providing food and supplies to more than 1000 hunger-relief programs in Northern Colorado and Wyoming.

NEW MAY EVENT

MS Walk Registration Tent, Sat.,May 4 6-11:30AM, 6 Volunteers are needed. This event will be held at Denver City Park.  This is a 5K Run & Walk.  Walk MS brings together a community of passionate people for one powerful cause: to end MS forever. And with every step they take and every dollar they raise... they're that much closer. The National MS Society is the largest private funder of MS research in the world.  Right now the Denver event already has over 2,000 registered participants! Their goal is $850,000 in fundraising and 5,500 registrants.  It's an exciting event where they have a program and lots going on. 

FUTURE EVENTS:
     The following events are going to be upcoming but I don't have the Event Captains nor all the details yet.  Some of our members do like to get their schedule planned as soon as possible so I'm listing these so you can "pencil them" in to your schedule.  I will let you know when I have all the information & have put them on the web site so you can "officially" register.
