As summer slowly fades away, Colorado’s best events are moving indoors. This week, support a good cause at one of these three fundraisers.
Growlers & Grapes: Since Colorado’s HomeAid chapter was founded in 1999, they have provided 43 housing units and 279 beds to homeless families throughout the state. Come celebrate their organization and raise crucial funds while enjoying beer, wine, appetizers, auctions, and live entertainment at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. Tickets are $40. Thu 5:30 p.m.; Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design‘s historic Rotunda building
Give One Year of 5280 for just $16.
Hard Hats & High Heels: Usually, when you volunteer with Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity, it requires a hammer and a hard day’s work. This Saturday, however, trade the hard hat for something a little more glamorous and join the organization at The Barn in Evergreen Memorial Park. Tickets for the fundraiser are $50 and can be purchased on their website. Sat 4:30-7:30 p.m.; The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park
Partner Up: For 46 years, Metro Denver Partners has assisted more than 16,500 at-risk youth—but now they need your help. This Saturday, head to their annual fundraising gala, which includes a cocktail reception, dinner, and silent and live auctions. Sat 6 p.m.; Four Seasons Hotel Denver
