For some, March is a month to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and March Madness. To me, March has always been a month to honor my dad. March 22nd was his 67th Heavenly Birthday and we held a fundraiser at Big Choice Brewing & Pizzeria. Thanks to our attendees, we raised $1,440 in just three hours. With the funds collected, Ripbeams will send 607 beanies to kids with leukemia, all across the United States. Since Ripbeams began in February of 2018, we’ve collected 2,893 beanies and given them to kids in 30 states, plus Washington, D.C.
We also collected donations of 36 new Ripbeams and two large boxes of yarn. Another special thanks to KWGN Denver Channel 2 News who featured Ripbeams and Brighton DECA on their March 18th morning show to help us spread the word about our mission and fundraiser. Brighton DECA earned 1st Place with their “Warming Hearts and Heads” campaign at state competition and are on their way to Nationals at the end of April.

The Rippy Agency is holding a collection drive to benefit Brighton Youth Association Baseball. Drop off your new or used baseball/softball gear at the Rippy Agency and while supplies last, you’ll receive a free ice cream coupon, thanks to Cold Stone Creamery of Brighton.
Don’t forget the 7th Annual Raptor Run is coming up at Barr Lake, Saturday April 13th, where funds will go to support future projects at the park. We are providing the runner’s goodies bags. See you there!
