Two New October Events

Saturday, October 06, 2018

SVGD Volunteers:
      We had a good time at the KUVO Fall Pledge drive on Thursday night but it was a little slow due to the Rockies playoff game during that time.  GO ROCKIE

      I've just added two new October events on our SVGD web site.  We will be helping the Denver Botanic Gardens at their spooky & fun Glow in the Gardens event!  Also, we have the opportunity to serve lunch at The Denver Rescue Mission this month!
      WE STILL NEED 4 VOLUNTEERS NEXT SATURDAY to help the American Lung Association register the runners for the Run the Rocks Event & to pass out the Tshirts etc. to the participants.  Please sign up soon if you can help us in Lakewood at the booth next Saturday as we definitely need more people for this to work!
       All the details for the three upcoming October events are given below.

Please sign up on to this assist at these events.


Registration & Packet Pickups for the Run The Rocks event benefiting the American Lung Assn., Sat. Oct. 13th, 9:30AM-2PM,(We still need 4 volunteers for this event!) 6 total Volunteers are needed. We will be helping participants make sure that they have all of their race materials & Tshirts, and getting them signed in for the Run which is on Sunday at Red Rocks.  We will be "running" the booth that is in Lakewood the day prior to the event.  Run the Rocks is a one-of-a-kind fun run/walk supporting the efforts of the American Lung Association in Colorado to support clean air and healthy lungs so that we may continue to LIVE AND BREATHE COLORADO. It was named one of “the best Colorado road races and fun runs of 2017” by The Know at The Denver Post.  This is truly a rocking race offering a 5K Run/Walk and a 10K Run around the Red Rocks Amphitheatre! It is an amazing fun run; has great live local bands along the course, and runners can take in the breathtaking views and scenery and finish on the steps of the Amphitheatre with a cold beer all while supporting a great cause.

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 up to 115 mats for a total of 315 overnight guests.  You really know you're making a difference in our community when you help at this shelter that serves those who most likely would not have a meal without it!
