Coming April 11th
Apex Night is DSCF's evening of fun at the Apex Center in Arvada. Kids and family may choose to climb the massive rock wall, adventure in the indoor water park, or explore an enormous tree house. But that is not all, there are more activities and sporting facilities. Whatever the choice, Apex Night is sure to be enjoyable for the entire family.

Additionally, there will be a Silent Auction to help raise money for Dennison's technology and textbook initiatives. Last year over $26,000 was raised!

Please mark this event on your calendar!

DCSF RAISES MONEY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GENEROUS COMPANIES
Funds are raised through a combination of direct donations, zero cost contributions, and fund raising activities.

CORPORATE SPONSORS

These great partners give cash donations, supplies to help with other fund raising activities, and gifts that we can auction off at APEX Night. Without the kind generosity of sponsors such as these, DCSF would not be as successful as it has been for over ten years.

GROCERY CARDS

Grocery cards are a zero cost donation. All that is required is that you add money to the card and use the card to pay for groceries.

$100 on the card equals $100 in groceries for you. DCSF gets $6 and you did nothing but load the card with money and use it to pay for groceries.

GIFT CARDS

Gift cards is another zero cost donation. All you have to do is place an order. DCSF gets a percentage based on the amount of the gift card. Look, you are likely to spend money at Starbucks, Target, Walmart, and Chipotle anyway—Get a card.

APEX NIGHT
