Spring into Giving: A Look at What’s to Come at Denali
Feb 28, 2020, 11:18 AM
Every season is full of opportunities to get involved in the community, but spring is an especially good time to take action and get involved.
We’re always looking for exciting new ways to partner with the areas we serve and make life better for our members, so we can’t wait for this new season. But before we jump into what’s coming, we wanted to review some of the awesome community events we’ve been involved with during the past few months.
- Supporting the State Fair’s Trick Dog Show – Sometimes, the best way to make somebody’s day is with a little fun. That’s why we kicked off fall 2019 with a local favorite…the Alaska State Fair! Denali sponsored the rescue dog show, where the lovable canine superstars wowed audiences with jumps and dives.
- Veteran’s Day Gas Card Giveaway – A big part of our mission at Denali is honoring the heroes who serve our community. At the top of this list are the brave men and women who fight for our country in the armed forces. The week of Veteran’s Day, we hosted a free gas card giveaway for veterans and active military. Each service member who stopped by was given their gift card and offered free coffee and doughnuts. On Veteran’s Day, we also hosted a special lunch at the American Veterans Post 2 location in Anchorage.
- Helping members achieve goals with a housing market seminar – Our members were invited to the Anchorage Museum for a night of fun, food, and insights on the Alaskan economy from local expert Ed King.
We’re so happy with all we’ve accomplished in these past few seasons. We’re equally grateful for all our members who always support our efforts. As we head towards the spring, there’s even more planned. Here are a few events to look out for:
- 2020 Rondy Rotary Beer Fest – Denali is sponsoring this year’s Beer Fest! This annual event draws lots of attendees and is always one of the best in Anchorage. Attendees get the opportunity to try food and drinks from more than 20 incredible local breweries. It’s not only fun, it also supports a great charity cause. Proceeds from the event are donated to organizations helping to fight human trafficking.
In addition to sponsoring, we’re giving away 10 sets of two tickets to our members! To enter, email [email protected] with the name and shirt sizes for you and your guest. Winners will be notified via email.
- Memorial Day Gas Card Giveaway – In May, this popular annual giveaway will return. Like in November, we’ll be offering veterans and active duty military members free gas cards to thank them for their service. Keep an eye out for updates on times and locations as the date gets closer.
There’s a great year ahead of us, and we can’t wait! To stay up-to date on our events and outreach projects, be sure to follow us on Facebook and continue to watch for new posts on the blog.
