Best Sports Bet: Mel's Rock 'n' Volley

January 2009

Bump. Set. Spike. Saturday's fundraiser for Melanie's Fund begins with a four-on-four co-ed volleyball tournament before it turns into a full-blown party and silent auction. Cowboy rocker Mike Wolf and the alternative group Solar jam, while attendees peruse the collection of spa packages, condo rentals, jewelry, and ski equipment on the auction table. All proceeds from the event go to helping Denverite Melanie Keely, who suffered severe brain damage in a summer bike accident, return to her home and family. Sat, Jan. 31, 11 a.m. The Island, 2233 S. Geneva St. 303-745-2255, $15
