Historic Denver welcomes guests for tours of the home, light refreshments, and the presentation of a contribution from Alpine Bank. Monday, 1 p.m., Molly Brown House Museum, 1340 Pennsylvania St., free

Camp Bow Wow’s Birthday “Pawty” Adoption: Visit one of Camp Bow Wow’s four locations in Westminster, Northglenn, Denver, or Golden to celebrate the birthdays of shelter dogs at “paw-ties.” Several local rescues, including Colorado Canine Rescue and Foothills Animal Shelter, will host on-site adoptions, and treats and appetizers will be available for the two-legged and the four-legged with cupcakes and “pupcakes.” Monday, 4–7 p.m.; locations vary, free

7th Annual Putt Your Stuff for Mental Health: Get a team together and show off your putt-putt skills for a hole-in-one on the course and in your community.
