Denver Pavilions’ Donates $5,000 To Food Bank Of The Rockies From Holiday Carousel Proceeds To Help Fight Hunger In Colorado

DENVER, Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Denver Pavilions’ 30′ carousel, located in the heart of downtown Denver, made a memorable holiday experience for visitors of all ages while also helping to fight hunger. The popular family-friendly attraction ran from December 9-23. Denver Pavilions donated $5,000 in proceeds to the charity from the cost of the rides as well as providing additional funds.

Denver Pavilions’ $5,000 donation will provide 20,000 meals to those in need in the Denver Metro area.

“The Denver Pavilions’ Holiday Carousel draws local and out-of-town visitors to the 16th Street Mall and helped stimulate the downtown retail economy during the holiday season,” said Gart Properties President Mark Sidell. “Just as importantly, the proceeds went to the Food Bank of the Rockies, an organization that has helped feed hundreds of thousands of Coloradoans. Nearly half of the food they distribute goes to children. This is a critically important cause.”

“Last year, we distributed nearly 48 million meals, enough to provide more than 131,000 meals each day to children, seniors and families,” said Kevin Seggelke, President and CEO of Food Bank of the Rockies. “One in seven Coloradans worries where their next meal will come from. With this donation, Denver Pavilions and the entire Denver-area community are helping to ensure we can distribute food to those desperately in need. We are extremely grateful for this much needed gift.”

Now in its third year, The Denver Pavilions’ Holiday Carousel has become a favorite holiday attraction downtown and is the first holiday carousel in the history of the 16th Street Mall. Each year, the Denver Pavilions’ 30′ carousel is located on Glenarm Place on Denver’s 16th Street Mall. The Food Bank of the Rockies has been the Denver Pavilions’ charity partner for the past three years.
