Molly’s Spirits Pull at the Mile High Q & Brew
Earlier this month, we were honored to host the spirits pull at the Mile High Q & Brew, the annual fundraiser for our neighbor the Tennyson Center for Children. The Tennyson Center provides residential and therapeutic services as well as a K-12 school for Colorado children ages five to 18. Many of these children have been abused or neglected while others are dealing with a variety of learning disabilities, behavioral challenges, and other mental issues. Often seen as a last resort for children who have nowhere else to go, the Tennyson Center is a community of people dedicated to serving children and youth and strengthening families and has been doing so for more than 112 years. The Mile High Q & Brew has raised over $1,000,000 for the Tennyson Center over the last 8 years!
So what’s a spirits pull? Bottles are collected, numbered and displayed on shelves. Guests donate a certain amount to pull a number that corresponds with a bottle, and they get to take that bottle home! At this year’s Q & Brew, guests donated $50 to participate and with the 96 bottles we collected – that’s $4800 for the Tennyson Center! This was our second year hosting the spirits pull, and like our first year, all bottles sold out!
