SVGD Volunteers: 
     We have filled our event tonight to assist at the Warren Village Gala.  Thanks to all of you who are helping!
      I have just put two new events on the web site for which you can register!  We will be helping at Chatfield Farms for the Pumpkin Fest benefiting Denver Botanic Gardens.  Anyone need a pumpkin?  Also, I am happy to announce that we are having a great Event Captain Dinner Meeting!  If you'd like to become an Event Captain also you are welcome to come. (Please let me know if you'd like to become a Captain.  I'd be glad to talk to you about what that entails.  You do not have to plan any of the events & can register to lead the ones that interest you & work with your schedule.)
      WE STILL NEED 3 VOLUNTEERS THIS UPCOMING FRIDAY to help at the Trivia For Life event benefiting the American Transplant Foundation.  Please sign up soon if you can help!
       Details for all of these events are given below.

Please sign up on to this assist at these events.


Trivia for Life benefiting the American Transplant Foundation, Fri. Oct. 4th, 5-10PM, (WE STILL NEED 3 VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS FRIDAY.) 6 Volunteers in total will be helping.  This is our first opportunity helping the American Transplant Foundation.  They are having their largest fundraising event, Trivia for Life, in a Sky Lounge in Downtown Denver.  They will reimburse all volunteers for the $5 charge to park at the facility so parking is free!  Our volunteers will be helping with Registration, as Table Attendants as they play trivia, and with General Event Assistance such as the silent auction, raffle tickets, etc.  They say this is a super-fun event & that they are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help everyone have a great time!  I'm hoping we can add the American Transplant Foundation to the list of non profits that we assist in our community!

Pumpkin Fest benefiting Denver Botanic Gardens, Sat. Oct 12th, 12-6PM6 Volunteers are needed. We have helped at this event several times and always enjoy the experience.  They usually give us each a free pumpkin in appreciation for helping which helps us get our homes in the Halloween or Thanksgiving spirit.  The event is held at Chatfield Farms.  We've helped before in areas such as with the people entering the Festival, at the check out lines, etc.  It's a lot of fun with a lot of happy people while helping the Gardens.

 Event Captain Dinner Meeting, Wed., Oct. 16th!!, 6:30-8PM.  We used to do these annually but haven't had one for the past few years. We are expecting all Event Captains and Board members to attend. Many of you have asked when we'll be having another one.  Well, here it is!  We will be meeting at a new Indian restaurant in Lone Tree that has a meeting area. After you sign up I will contact you with more information and a choice of a few menu items as we'll place our food order prior to our arrival.  We'll have an opportunity to talk, discuss ideas, distribute the new name tags, hear what is new (i.e. a new web site & Facebook page), meet the Board members as they are coming, etc.  Also, some of the new Captains should be there so it will give everyone an opportunity to meet each other, ask questions, etc.  I am looking for some new Event Captains as we've lost some due to health, moving, etc.  If you would like to be an Event Captain or know of anyone who might make a great Captain please let me know.  A new Captain does not have to be an SVGD member at this time and doesn't have to be single. This will be a great opportunity for new Captains to meet others and learn more about what we do as an organization.  I hope you are as excited as I that we are going to be getting together!  

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


     The following events are going to be upcoming but I don't have either the Event Captains or 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.   
          Sat. Oct. 19th- Clothing Donation Sorting at the Jeffco Action Center, 9AM-Noon
          Thanksgiving Dinner!, Thurs. Nov. 28th- All SVGD members are welcome!  Time & details coming out later.
If you know of any non-profit organizations that can use a group of 6 or more volunteers during an upcoming evening or weekend please feel free to give me the information as I'll be glad to explore the possibility of organizing a group of our SVGD volunteers to assist!  Thank you!
