Save the date for the DGS Guest Bartender Night at the BBC Tavern and Grill in Greenville, Delaware! Our bartenders will be working the taps on Thursday, November 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. All tips to our barmen and barmaids will go directly to support outpatient therapy for the children in our care.
Can't make it that night? You can "tip" your favorite bartender to contribute online right now. Click here.
Join us for the Share the Holiday Spirit 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, December 12, 2015, in Dover, Delaware.
The course for the run/walk is through Silver Lake Park and Dover's Historic District. The event includes a cookie contest, so bring your best-tasting and most creative holiday sweets. Once again, we'll also award prizes for the most festive outfit. Participants are also encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to be donated to local food banks and shelters.
This event was first held in 2011 in memory of Laura Gondeck who was an avid runner and advocate for children, youth, and DGS. Laura passed away on October 3, 2010, while participating in an event like this one. Laura's family believes in the DGS mission and has designated DGS as the beneficiary of the event, which has become a favorite community and family tradition.
Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the 5K will begin at 10 a.m. To register, click here.
The Holiday Spirit 5K is sponsored by Carltons Men's and Women's Apparel, Dover Pools, and Family Dental Associates.
Thank you to everyone who supported DGS in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community! It was a great team effort and we are so thankful to our employees, friends, families, four-legged friends, donors, Board of Directors, Ambassador Counsel members, and our sponsor, Enterprise. Of course, we also thank Highmark for hosting the walk so that every bit of the $5,000 we raised will go directly to help at-risk children and youth in Delaware get high quality mental health treatment. We had a total of 136 participants and, again, we are so thankful to all of you for walking either with us or virtually!
