Furry Scurry Team Members Gather to Support a Great Cause21 Apr 2011, by Community Service in
Last night, over 30 “scurriers” joined fellow team members and the Team Captains for the Water 2 Wine-DTC & The Tipton Law Firm Furry Scurry Furry Scurry team party. Team members celebrated together, with several representatives from the Dumb Friends’ League also in attendance. The evening gave team members an opportunity to meet other team members, folks from the League, and to share in the collective spirit of why they all support such a wonderful organization. Rick Gabrielson, Vice President of Development and Communications for the Dumb Friends League came out to speak to the team and provide encouragement and thanks for the sometimes unconventional fundraising tactics the team employs!! “It works, and my Co-Captain, Cory has been doing this a long time, so she knows all the tricks,” said Co-Captain Carl Corns, Assistant General Manager at Water 2 Wine-DTC. “We have a lot of fun putting together great incentives for the team, and the team seems to have a lot of fun working hard to raise the desperately needed funds for the League. Basically, we are all here to support a great organization, and if we happen to have a lot of fun along the way…that’s even better!” Carl went on to say.
The evening would not have been complete without great incentives for the team, giveaways, door prizes, and the announcement of a huge giveaway the team will be putting on after the Scurry to reward all team members for their participation in this year’s event and for their fundraising efforts. The team captains announced that if the team reaches or exceeds their goal of raising $12,500.00, as a team, a donor has agreed to contribute a weekend stay at any Hilton property in the continental U.S. to the team giveaways which will take place at the team After Party on May 26, 2011. There are many other items up for grabs in the team giveaway after the Scurry concludes, including restaurant gift cards, handmade wooden dog themed carvings, $1,000 toward a complete estate planning package, professional dog training, wine tastings, wine gift baskets, massages, etc.
Also in attendance last night were representatives from the Slam Bar, one of the local sponsors of the Water 2 Wine-DTC/The Tipton Law Firm Furry Scurry team. A member of the Slam Bar’s staff joined the team last night and will be walking in the Scurry with the team on May 7. Julie Mathews from Body Affects also took time away from her busy schedule to join the team last night and provide well deserved chair massages for the hard working team members who are out there beating the bushes raising funds for the League.
Team member, Dede Schuringa, will be hosting a silent auction to raise money for the League (via the Water 2 Wine-DTC/The Tipton Law Firm Furry Scurry team). That event will be held next Thursday night, April 28 at 6:00 p.m. at Water 2 Wine-DTC on E. Arapahoe Road. Come out and bid on great items, some hard to find, others are just great gifts…and mother’s day is coming! The League has also donated “Vintage” Furry Scurry items to that silent auction, so you won’t want to miss out! Any member of the Water 2 Wine-DTC/The Tipton Law Firm Furry Scurry team may include items in the silent auction and anyone is encouraged to join the team for the event to raise money!
The food at last night’s Team Party was graciously provided by Vision Catering, USA and was delightful! Check out the photos from the event on Water 2 Wine-DTC’s Facebook page.
There is still time to join (or support) the team! Commemorative bottles of wine (for people over 21) and commemorative team leashes are still available to those who join the team…don’t miss out.
