Seven years ago BridgeWell partnered with PAL (Police Activities League) as a way to invest in Colorado’s inner-city youth and a way to express our gratitude to Denver’s first responders.
The Denver Police Activities League (PAL) is a non-profit charitable organization established in 1969 to provide athletic and other endeavors to Denver youth during high-risk hours, and to be a positive interface between the Denver Police Department and the community.
As a sponsor the BridgeWell team was invited to attend the 2010 Wine Tasting Fundraiser, featuring local celebrities like Kirk Montgomery, of Channel Nine News, and Jake Schroder, lead singer in the rock and pop band Opie Gone Bad.
It was a fun evening where we sampled great wine, indulged in delicious appetizers and participated in a lottery style competition to bid on some of the finest bottles of wines available.
This year The Daniels fund has given Denver PAL a challenge grant, where they will match dollar-for-dollar all new donations up to an aggregate of $50,000 made to Denver PAL by September 1, 2012. If you’re interested in contributing, your tax deductible donations can be sent to Denver Police Activities League C/O Daniels Matching Grant, 1240 W. Bayaud Ave., Denver, Colorado 80223.
