Dine Out for SUN!
New this year, Stapleton United Neighbors is partnering with community restaurants for additional fundraising during the week leading up to the 13th annual Kickball Tournament. Please check the SUN Facebook page www.facebook.com/StapletonUnitedNeighbors/ and SUN website www.StapletonUnitedNeighbors.com for: 1) a coupon to show to each restaurant to ensure your participation in the program, 2) whether additional restaurants are available to participate, and 3) to sign up your team for the kickball tournament.
Monday September 5th: Mici Monday, 11AM–9PM (dine in and pick up only). Take advantage of Kids Eat Free, and donate to SUN by enjoying a pizza, sandwich or pasta dinner and an after-dinner gelato at the Central Park Blvd Stapleton-Family owned restaurant. Micis has supported SUN for years at the annual appreciation event for SUN volunteers, and we are pleased that they are helping SUN support the community yet again.
Tuesday September 6th: Brixx Buxx Diners get to enjoy delicious pizza and Brixx will donate to SUN: $3 for every adult pizza and $1 for every kids’ pizza. Anchoring the east side of the Conservatory Green Plaza, Brixx has hit the ground running since opening earlier this year.
Wednesday September 7th – Fabulous Fuel at Four Friends Kitchen. Enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Stapleton-family-owned Gem located in the 29th Avenue Towncenter during all operating hours (6:30AM–2:30PM) and 10% of the bill for anyone who mentions the SUN fundraiser will be donated to SUN. Whether you choose a traditional southern option like Biscuits and Gravy, the delicious crispy tofu grits, or something in-between, feel satisfied by both the food’s contribution to your belly, and your contribution to the community
SUN’s 13th annual Kickball Tournament will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 5pm on the field at Central Park. This will be the first evening tournament in SUN’s history of hosting this annual event. Teams will start playing promptly at 5pm, and with sunset at 7:15pm that day, the trophy will be awarded by 7:45pm as there are no lights on the field. Refs will work to keep the games moving as quickly as possible, with new rules in place this year to limit the duration of first-round matches. Space is still available for teams. Please sign up on the SUN website.
SUN thanks the Stapleton MCA for event sponsorship, as well as Trommeter Orthodontics for field sponsorship. The recipient of proceeds raised during this effort will be donated to this year’s charity partner, the Denver Police Department (DPD) District Five (D5) COP Shop/Community HUB at Northfield (8230 Northfield Blvd., Suite 1350). The COP Shop is a source of positive relationship building between DPD and Denver citizens. For more information about the COP Shop, please refer to the August 2016 SUN Spot in the Front Porch
SUN’s Monthly Meetings for the Remainder of 2016
SUN meetings are held on the third Tuesday of most months in the Central Park Rec Center Multipurpose Room. The first hour from 6:30-7:30pm is the SUN Block Captain/Outreach meeting, and the remainder of the evening through 8:45pm is dedicated to the SUN Board.
Now spearheaded by new and energetic blood, SUN’s outreach committee will be hosting themed meetings for the remainder of 2016. Monthly themes are planned to be: September: I-70 project; October: Neighborhood Watch/Community Safety (always an element of the monthly meeting, but it will be the focus of the full hour); and November: Community Construction Updates. Also occurring in October will be the SUN/Denver Public Schools Education Expo; details forthcoming.
