Chuy's- check presentation

Chuy's Tex Mex has partnered with Shining Stars in opening their newest Denver area locations at Belmar and the Denver Tech Center. They have donated all proceeds from drinks purchased during their VIP Opening Nights and have raised enough to sponsor 6 Shining Stars at the 2019 Aspen Winter Games, plus a little extra! Thank you for bringing hope to our brave kids! Check them out if you are in the area - burritos and queso? Yes please!

Aspen saturday market

A few of our wonderful Aspen student volunteers manned our Aspen Saturday Market booth on August 11th with the help of Tom Hills, Director of the Student Volunteer Program. Pictured above are Austin, Jaclyn, Mary Beth, and Adelaide. This is Austin's 8th year as a student volunteer coordinator at her school. They raised $157 which will be used to purchase a new, wireless microphone that can be used at all of our events and programs. Thank you so much for all of your hard work! We are so excited to try out our new equipment!
