SVGD Volunteers: 
      We had a great time at the MuckFest for Multiple Sclerosis yesterday!  Thanks to everyone who helped.  They are totaling the proceeds but it looks like we raised between $200,000-$300,000 for MS!
       I've just put another new event on the web site so you can register.  We will be helping Warren Village again at their annual Fall Gala!  This is such a wonderful event. Also, I still need 5 volunteers for this Saturday to help at the Food Bank of the Rockies!  Please sign up soon if you can help as I don't want to have to cancel the event.  Everyone always enjoys this experience as we put together the boxes of food that they give to their needy clients.  We always feel like we've done something to really help out the community!  Please see details for both of these events below.

 SEPTEMBER EVENTS:

Food Bank of the Rockies, Sat.,Sept. 21st, 8:45AM-Noon, 6 Volunteers are needed. We will, once again, be helping at their main warehouse in Aurora.  Food and other items are processed from food drives and grocery rescue pickups.  Volunteers will help inspect, sort and box these items before they are distributed to clients.  This are requires an attention to detail and is a low impact/physical area although it does require standing for the shift.  The event is located in NE Denver. The Food Bank of the Rockies helps families thrive by procuring and distributing food and essentials to the hungry.  They are a fantastic organization!

Taking Flight Fall Gala benefiting Warren Village, Sat., Sept.28th, 5-10PM, 6 Volunteers are needed. We will be helping in areas such as greeters, check-in & out, and with the silent auction.  This fantastic event has cocktails, a gourmet dinner, a live & silent auction, and an inspirational program.  It is a cocktail-attire event that will be held in an upscale Downtown Hotel.  Volunteers will receive free dinner.  Warren Village's goal is to help low-income, single-parent families make the journey from poverty to self sufficiency.  We have helped them in the past at galas, at a fashion show, painted the interior of their school, helped decorate their main building for the Holidays, etc.  They are a very worthy organization!


Please sign up for any of these events on the www.svgd.org  web site.
