Our Top Picks for September 22-28

Get Involved is a weekly series pointing readers toward community-oriented events, volunteer opportunities, and good causes in Colorado. 


Lunch With a Purpose: ACE Scholarships has provided more than 12,000 scholarships since 2000, but not without having to turn away more than 6,000 children in that same time period. Help them continue their good work at this annual luncheon. Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice will be speaking about access to education, which she calls “the civil rights issue of our day.” Tue noon; Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center

ParTee on the Course: The goal of this charity golf tournament is more than perfect backswings and holes-in-one. Throw on your brightest pink to support those battling breast cancer and raise money for Hope Lives Breast Cancer Support Center. With your help, the organization provides breast cancer patients with complimentary care and lifestyle support throughout their treatment. Sat 9 a.m.; Highland Meadows Golf Course (Windsor)


Heal the Troops: Healing Warriors provides services to help active duty and veteran service members manage physical pain and PTSD symptoms. Sip on a drink from the open bar, take part in the silent auction, and enjoy small plates and casino games at this year’s gala. But most of all, support the Fort Collins and future Denver clinic locations. Sun 5:30 p.m.; Lamar Street Center
