What are you doing for Earth Day 2010?
April 22nd is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Not coincidentally, it is also the seventh annual Mile High Youth Corps (MHYC) Spring Happy Hour and Silent Auction. At MHYC, we celebrate Earth Day by inviting new and old friends for refreshing cocktails, tasty appetizers and some healthy competition over exciting auction items.
Looking for great deals on museum memberships, premier Rockies and Broncos tickets, yoga and spa packages and mountain zip-lining adventures? Bid with us. Feel like spending happy hour at an open-air rooftop on a beautiful Denver spring evening? Celebrate with us. Need an excuse to enjoy libations and snacks after a hard day’s work? Toast with us. Interested in reconnecting with old friends and meeting new people? Socialize with us. Are you all about youth, the community and the environment? Support us.<
By attending this event, you’ll directly support MHYC’s largest Summer of Service Program to date. Providing over 175 young adults (18- to 24-year-olds) with green jobs this summer, this year for the first time, our program will include camping crews out of the Denver office. Corpsmembers will load up their gear, head into the backcountry for up to 10 days at a time and complete important projects like trail building and fire fuel mitigation. Not only does this provide a unique experience for our youth, it also maximizes the time we can provide to project sponsors.
As a MHYC Board Member since 2003, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day than to come out and support the Corps. So, I’ll be on the rooftop of the Funky Buddha Lounge at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 22nd—join me!
