AIDS Walk Colorado Update

Last Week At The Beach Cares wrote about the AIDS walk that was happening on Saturday August 10,2013. The event happened on Saturday, we couldn’t of asked for better weather it was sunny, warm and had a slight breeze. The At The Beach Care’s team excited to be out in Cheesman Park supporting this cause.

At The Beach Cares team was out handing out samples of sunscreen and burn relief to the walkers, runners and also the supporters of the AIDS walk. It was a great event At The Beach Cares team even got a couple laughs during the diva run. The Diva Run is where participants ran 200 meters in a pair of stilettoes. Let’s just say the only two brave souls; the youngest member of the At The Beach cares team and At The Beach’s Future Marketing Liaison Intern, Andrew strapped on those heels and dashed for the cause while district managers; Nic Dereu and Daniel Rohn served as great cheerleaders for At The Beach Cares “Divas”. At The Beach Cares is proud of these two boys dashing 200 meters to raise awareness of those that have been lost or are living with the AIDS virus.

Taste of Life Coming Up!

If anyone who follows the At The Beach Cares blog knows that At The Beach Cares is large supporter of Project Angel Heart. If y’all remember back in June, At The Beach Cares presented our donation check at Project Angel Heart and we also got a tour and saw some of the great work that Project Angel Heart’s meals provide to their clients.

Dedicated members of the Denver community founded Project Angel Heart in 1991. They were determined to ensure that those living with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses were receiving proper nutrition — vital in the fight against disease. Project Angel Heart initially served 12 clients from a single, donated pan of lasagna. In 2012, Project Angel Heart delivered over 445,581 meals to 1,950 clients, free of charge. During more than 20 years of phenomenal growth, our goal has always remained the same: ‘meals with love’ for men, women, and children living with life-threatening illness. – Project Angel Heart. 2013.

This morning while I was looking ahead at my calendar I saw that coming up in a couple weeks is Taste of Life. I don’t know about y’all but this At The Beach Cares team loves food and caring; So it’s only fitting that the At The Beach Cares team will be at Taste of Life showing our continued support for Project Angel Heart. November will be here before we know it so I better send my jacket and tie to dry cleaners so that I will have it ready for this event!

Allies In Caring

At The Beach Cares team is always working overtime! Between our office duties and all of the At The Beach Cares events that we are a-part of, we need to step back from time to time and thank all of those that have helped At The Beach Cares along the way. When we read about the One Colorado Education Fund which is hosting its 3rd annual Ally Awards on August 17, At The Beach Cares knew this would be a great event to attend.

 

One Colorado is a statewide advocacy organization dedicated to securing and protecting equality and opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Coloradans and their families. One Colorado works toward that goal by effectively advocating for LGBT Coloradans and their families and by lobbying the General Assembly, executive branch, and local governments on issues such as safe schools, relationship recognition and LGBT health and human services.

The Ally Awards is going to be a great event which will honor and celebrate the work of straight allies from across the state of Colorado. I know this At The Beach Cares team member is really excited for the silent auction; At The Beach Cares team donated a year of unlimited all-access tanning in any of our UV and UV-free options along with a swanky At The Beach Cares lotion bag to keep one lucky attendee bronzed all year long. This event will for sure be a celebratory event which At The Beach Cares is thankful to be a-part of.

On your mark, Dash Diva.

Can anyone get this At The Beach Cares member a double shot café Americano? It is Monday and The At The Beach Cares team has a lot to do this week leading up to the 26th Annual Colorado AIDS walk which At The Beach Cares team is participating in.

The At The Beach Cares team is thrilled to be a part of this fundraiser for Colorado AIDS Project. The Colorado AIDS Project was born out of a Volunteer-staffed response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In the beginning, the Colorado AIDS Project consisted of a small but booming food pantry, a part-time case manager, and a volunteer outreach program to those living with HIV. It has grown to offer those affected with HIV/AIDS with services such as case management, mental health, substance abuse counseling, food bank and Free HIV testing along with prevention and education programs to the community. Through the years Colorado AIDS Project has grown; directly serving 2,600 people living with HIV/AIDS. At The Beach Cares is proud of the work that the Colorado AIDS Project has done and the continuing work that the Colorado AIDS Project is planning for the future.

The AIDS Walk Colorado is the Rocky Mountain Region’s largest and most successful HIV and AIDS fundraiser. More than 8,000 attendees fueled by donations from more than 13,000 individuals, to raise money for vital services for HIV/AIDS clients of The Colorado AIDS Project. The event serves as a day to remember those we have lost to the disease with prominent speakers and panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, in addition to the Celebration of Life Festival, live music, food, beverages and the 5th annual AIDS Walk Colorado Volleyball Tournament, held in conjunction with the Colorado Gay Volleyball Association.

At The Beach Cares team is excited to be a part of this event and spread some sunshine in Cheesman Park again! I know that this At The Beach Cares Member is excited to do the Diva Dash Stiletto Fun Run! Which is where participants swap out their sneakers for a pair cute stilettos and dash 200 meters. I have no skills of running in stilettos but I love a challenge. I’m sure some of the other At The Beach Cares members have plenty of experience of running in stilettos so they will probably show me up. Ohhh well, I guess if my fellow At The Beach Cares members don’t see me in the office next Monday they can find me icing my bruises or my bruised ego!

At The Beach Cares is everywhere

At The Beach Cares team has been busy the past few weeks spreading our sunshine through-out our various markets. At The Beach Cares has been Golfing, helped out with Denver Pride fest, and just got back from our blossoming California market. All those events have really made the At The Beach Cares team really happy with the impact that At The Beach Cares has made in the markets that At The Beach serves.

It is a new week and which means At The Beach Cares has another event to spread sunshine at, this weekend At The Beach Cares is helping out a Denver based social network called SoRewarding thru the donation of a Year of Tanning and an At The Beach Cares Lotion Bag. SoRewarding is a cause-focused social network that integrates giving into your everyday life.

At The Beach Cares looks forward to giving back to the Fort Collins Community this weekend thru the donation that was given to SoRewarding’s event being held in Fort Collins this weekend. At The Beach Cares wishes SoRewarding the best and hope our donation helps SoRewarding with reaching their goal.

We got Swing

This weekend was a beautiful weekend for At The Beach Cares to get out and work on our swing. I know this member of the At The Beach Cares grew up playing golf and I played in many charity tournaments through out my high school days to even the present. So it felt good that At The Beach Cares team was able to help out the Women of AT&T in Concert with Women on Course Charity Golf Tournament this past weekend at the Lone Tree Golf Course.

The Women of the AT&T Colorado is an Employee resource group at AT&T that focuses on professional development for its members. This golf tournament that the Women of AT&T have put on was to raise money to present a scholarship to a female high school student interested in pursuing a degree in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and/or Mathematics.

At The Beach Cares was happy to donate a Year of Tanning and At The Beach Lotion Bag in addition to those donations, At The Beach Cares also handed out some free week promotion cards so the participants of the tournament could reward themselves by getting their tans on and any of At The Beach Care’s more than 30 locations in the metro area.

Making a Impact in The Golden State

Freaks! The At The Beach Cares team has packed our At The Beach Cares bags and are spreading our Philanthropic sunshine to our newest market, California! At The Beach Cares is excited to take part in helping the greater Los Angeles community thru helping the CMALA or also known as Crystal Meth Anonymous of Los Angeles with their BINGO fundraiser by donating a year of 360 unlimited tanning membership and a At The Beach Cares’ lotion bag

The Crystal Meth Anonymous of Los Angeles Convention’s BINGO fundraiser was on July 14th. At The Beach Cares hopes this donation will help the CMALA Convention raise fund to combat Crystal Meth Addiction in Southern California. Crystal Meth addiction is a growing problem in American Society today, and the Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women that share their experiences, strength and hope in each other so they can work to recover and live a meth-free way of living. Crystal Meth Anonymous also contains a spinoff of Alcoholics Anonymous’ 12 step program.

At The Beach Cares is proud to be making people’s lives bright and tanner but At The Beach Cares is looks forward to getting involved with the greater communities of our California At The Beach Cares locations through At The Beach Cares involvement with organizations like the CMALA.

In the beginning the Colorado AIDS Project’s consisted of a small but blooming food pantry, a part-time case manager, and a volunteer outreach program to those living with HIV but has grown to offer those infected and affected with HIV/AIDS services like case management, mental health and substance abuse counseling, food bank, and Free HIV testing along with prevention and education programs to the community.

Project Angel Heart

Last week At The Beach Cares blogged about the donation to Project Angel Heart that At The Beach Cares raised in the Month of April which totaled $25,000.

Yesterday, June 12, 2013,  Shanda Keys, National Sales Director, Judson Kinkade, VP of Corporate Development and the At The Beach Cares team went to Project Angel Heart and presented the donation check. At The Beach Cares also got to tour Project Angel Heart and experience how their nutritious meals improve the life of their clients which have life-threatening illnesses.

“We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with At the Beach and their investment in the lives of those fighting life-threatening illness. Over the years, support from At the Beach and their generous customers has helped us prepare and deliver tens of thousands of meals to men, women and children who have nowhere else to turn for their nutritional needs.” – Erin Pulling, President and CEO, Project Angel Heart

 

Don’t these do-good freaks look good holding that huge check? At The Beach Cares is committed to helping others in the surrounding community.
