When event planning is your game, what better than to bring your expertise to help your community as the Director of Events for a local nonprofit that is near and dear to your heart? This is exactly what Jen has done as a founding board member of The Beautiful Scar Project, where she has brought her talents in the event space to oversee the curation, development, and facilitation of all #teamtbsp events. The Beautiful Scar Project is an organization that provides resource folders and medical cooling devices to hospitals to use with families who are suffering the loss of a baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth, and neonatal death. They believe no family should be without help or hope. Jen believes deeply in the sacred work this organization does to assist families in their darkest hours and is passionate about helping raise funds to continue to make a positive impact in an overlooked and underserved community. From golf events to tattoo festivals, Chili cookoffs to restaurant dine out events, Jen’s keen eye elevates The Beautiful Scar Project’s events to ensure enough money is raised to continue funding the organization’s programs that impact hundreds of families across Colorado each year. https://thebeautifulscarproject.com
Andrea has taken another approach to volunteering now that her older son is in high school and has found multiple ways to use her meeting & event planning background. She is involved in multiple committees that support Northfield High School (NHS). One of the committees that she is a participant in is the critical needs committee that helps supply items, such as food and toiletries, for children in need via the High School Marketplace. The Service Learning committee and the Northfield Foundation Athletic Committee (NAFC) are two other volunteer opportunities Andrea has been involved with. One of the highlights of her volunteering came last summer during the Stapleton Kids Triathlon. The NAFC involved all athletes at NHS to volunteer to assist in the running of the triathlon.

Cary plays an active role supporting Steele Elementary School Community in Denver, Colorado. Each year, she is on the leadership team helping plan the Annual Washington Park Home Tour which raises more than $70,000 for the school. The money raised helps the school by computers, books and games for their classrooms and also pays for teacher assistant salaries. The Home Tour is a fun way for Cary to transfer her professional event management skills to help her kids’ schools.
