Things to do in Denver in March
March - in like a lion, out like a lamb. If you're from Denver, you know that saying describes Colorado weather pretty well. One day it's snowing, the next it's a balmy 65 degrees and sunny.
But whether it rains, snows or shines, there's plenty to do in our fair city all month long. Check out this list below and for more suggestions, visit our friends at Visit Denver - www.visitdenver.org.
Apple Awards shine for educators, staff at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel
The Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel hosts many large conferences and conventions organized by companies with headquarters out of state, but we’re also an ideal venue for smaller, more intimate meetings and events held by many local corporations here in in the Denver metro area. One of these events is the Apple Awards, the biggest annual fundraiser for the Douglas County Education Foundation (DCEF).
On Feb. 23, more than 200 amazing Douglas County teachers, support staff and administrators representing every school in the district were honored during a gala at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, including seven employees and a corporate sponsor. This is the eighth year for the Apple Awards, which shines the spotlight on outstanding educators throughout the Douglas County School District. In addition to honoring excellence in teaching, the event raises proceeds totaling more than $500,000 for collaborative programs benefiting the classrooms and students in the district.
Congrats to all!
