This Year’s Charities

This year’s event will benefit the Community Table (Food Bank) and My Fairy Dawg Mother (Dog Rescue)

As always, we will have a silent auction and “Chinese raffle,” with all the proceeds being split between these 2 charities.

This is also a food drive.. so please bring canned goods; peanut butter and canned proteins; toiletries; and dog and cat food. All of the donated items will go to help the Community Table. For those of you unfamiliar with the Community Table, it is a non-profit organization that offers many services. These include emergency, low-income senior, and other food assistance. They have an amazing facility where they not only provide food, they provide job placement assistance, housing assistance and many other services for low-income families. One of my favorite programs there is called “Feeding the Future.” This awesome program provides a bag of food every Friday to the kids on the free or reduced lunch program at the local schools. This ensures the kids have food for the weekends.

My Fairy Dawg Mother is a no shelter dog rescue. It was founded in an effort to save abused and neglected dogs from across the United States and pair them with loving and stable Colorado families. They are a Colorado-based non-profit dog rescue that advocates finding the perfect long term home for each dog that is brought under the rescue umbrella. Their foster program is constructed of a large group of Colorado families that have opened their homes to our rescue dogs. By temporarily housing a rescue dog in a functional home they erase the stresses that boarding facilities can induce. The integration of a rescue pup into an established pack promotes socialization and develops self-confidence. In addition, the rescue pup receives individualized attention and love from their foster family.

We have some fantastic silent auction and raffle prizes this year!!!

We need your help! We are still looking for baskets and items for the “Chinese Raffle!” We have some great donations so far, but we still need more! Please contact Karen Bell or Robin Reed to discuss, if you’d like to help us out.

There is limited parking around the area. You can park in the parking lot of the restaurant next door, also down at the corner of 52nd and Marshall, behind Marshall Liquors. (DO NOT PARK IN THE MARSHALL LIQUOR STORE PARKING LOT) But go behind it and park in the lot for Someplace Else Brewery (6425 W 52nd Ave, #6, Arvada). It’s a 4-minute walk, but we will have a shuttle car between the 2 places if needed.

Fins Up! Happy Friday!!
Pete Grosskreuz,
President, Colorado Parrot Head Club
