LOCATION: South Metro Denver REALTOR® Association Parking Lot

As COVID-19 continues to shape our world, SMDRA has learned to adapt and do things differently. These changes will include the 2020 Annual Holiday Brunch and Toy Drive benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Denver.
GREAT NEWS…SMDRA WILL STILL BE HOLDING THIS EVENT! This year’s event will be very different and will adhere to current Colorado guidelines. The event will consist of a Drive-Thru Toy Drive and Parade of Trees held on Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 4pm to 7pm.
The SMDRA parking lot will be lit up with decorated holiday trees. The trees will have been donated and decorated by our SMDRA REALTORS® and Affiliate Members. Drive through our special winter wonderland while dropping off your toy donations. Our generous sponsors will provide holiday treat delivered to you in your car.
DONATE TO THE TOY DRIVE FOR BOYS AND GIRLS Clubs of Denver IN ANY OR ALL THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
WIN A DECORATED TREE!! For each toy you bring to the Toy Drive, you will be given a ticket to cast your vote for your favorite decorated tree. You can also purchase additional tickets – One (1) ticket for $5 and Five (5) tickets for $20. Proceeds from ticket sales will also benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Denver.
Your ticket will work two-ways; the tree with the most votes will WIN the ‘2020 Parade of Trees Champion’ Title. Secondly, one ticket will be drawn from each tree at the end of the night and that ticket holder will win that decorated tree. Winners will be notified the following morning and do not need to be present to win.
This year we will be offering the Sponsorship opportunities, as seen below. These are limited, and are on a first come, first served basis.
DECORATE AND DONATE A PARADE OF TREE (Limited to 20). Purchase, decorate, display, and donate their stylized tree creations. SMDRA Tree donations can be comprised of individuals, teams, offices and /or friends, are encouraged to enter a tree
Twenty wonderful tree creations, decorated by SMDRA Members comprised of individuals, teams, offices and/or groups of friends, will be set up for all visitors to this event to view and vote on! Tickets for voting will be sold, and the proceeds will also benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Denver. At the end of the evening, each tree will be raffled off to those who participated in the voting process. ALSO, the tree with the most votes will be declared the 2020 PARADE OF TREES CHAMPION and be awarded a special prize.
How each tree is decorated and what goodies are hanging on the branches of the trees, is completely up to the creativity of the person(s) entering the tree for our festivities.
