8 Fundraisers to Look Forward to This Fall
Northern Colorado Youth For Christ at a Bronco’s Pre-Season Game
We love a good fundraiser. We love helping our non-profits. We recently donated some pre-season Broncos’ tickets to the staff at Northern Colorado Youth for Christ.
“Thank you so much for the Denver Broncos tickets. It was such a great time to hang out with some of my staff. My wife and I took Jeff Neel, who runs our skate and snowboard ministry, The Refuge, and his wife, as well as Jared Nelson, who runs Higher Grounds, and his wife. It was a much needed retreat and a great time bonding together. Thank you so much for thinking of us and doing ministry with us. You are a true blessing.”
