According to event organizers, on Golden Gives Day, participating local businesses will donate a voluntary self-designated percentage of their sales to benefit the Boulder County Wildfire Fund.
Alissa Mattson, owner of Kona Bowls in downtown Golden and one of the event co-organizers, said the day after the Marshall Fire, many business owners wanted to help fire victims in the neighboring communities of Lewisville and Superior.
She said there is already an overwhelming response, with more than 60 businesses committed to the event, and more signing up each day.
Golden Gives Day organizers hope the community turns out in full force to dine and shop at participating businesses to bolster fundraising efforts.
Participating businesses must submit proof of their donations to organizers after the event. Golden Gives Day organizers will announce the total dollar amount raised in a Jan. 10 press release.
