The Busiest day ever!!

June10th, 2011
This was the first and last day I will ever book more than two appearances in one day.  I had an amazing day, but I was exhausted!!

11amI started out the day by stopping by Michael Loomer's lemonade stand.  He is a classmate of my children, but what makes this young man so special is he is a cancer survivor. He participates every year since his own remission, in Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, which fights childhood cancer one cup at a time.  His whole family gets involved by making sweet treats to hand out, and refreshing lemonade.  His two younger brother's flag down drivers in our neighborhood while he flashes his adorable smile.  Mom and dad should be very proud of their remarkable young man.

12:30pmNext stop was the Optimus Youth Golf Tournament at the Ridge in Castle Pines.   I was asked to speak to the golfers before tee off and talk to them about this amazing organization, which was founded by some boys I went to high school with who turned out to be incredible men.  This organization finds unique ways to give back and provide for under privileged youth here in Denver all the while providing funds to build and provide for orphaned children in Kenya and other parts of the world.

6:30pmMy last and final stop for the day was ZOO BQ held at the Denver zoo by Lutheran Family Services.  This event was really great because I was able to bring my three children and use it as a teaching lesson, plus it was nice for them to see what being Mrs. Colorado is all about.  My dear friend Becca also attended the event with her two boys.  Lutheran Family Services of Colorado is a faith based, non-profit human services agency helping children and families during their most challenging times.  My job was to greet and visit with the families, we also took pictures and I signed autographs for the children.  What a great ending to a really wonderful day.
