DENVER, Jan. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Denver Pavilions’ 30′ carousel, located in the heart of downtown Denver, made a memorable holiday experience for visitors of all ages while also helping to fight hunger. The popular family-friendly attraction ran from December 15- January 2, 2018. Denver Pavilions donated $5,000 in proceeds to Food Bank of the Rockies from the cost of the rides.
Mark Sidell, president of Gart Properties, co-owner of Denver Pavilions stated, “As a company and as individuals, we are deeply committed to making a difference in the lives of the community we serve. We are pleased that the Denver Pavilions’ Holiday Carousel continues to be a successful fundraising tool for our partner organization, Food Bank of the Rockies. The funds raised at Denver Pavilions help to meet the critical needs of those facing hunger and food insecurity in our area. Thank you to all who participated.”
Denver Pavilions’ $5,000 donation will provide 20,000 meals to those in need in the Denver Metro area.
“Food Bank of the Rockies is deeply grateful to Denver Pavilions and all the patrons who rode the carousel this past holiday season! Thanks to everyone’s efforts, we’ll be able to provide an additional 20,000 meals to hungry men, women, and children in our community,” said Kevin Seggelke, the food bank’s president and CEO. “Even though our economy is improving, there are still many families struggling with hunger. One in 6 Colorado children don’t always know where they’ll find their next meal and this gift will make a big difference for them and for their families. Thank you!”
