We Have, AND NEED, Your Glasses!
Saturday April 06 | 11:00AM - 11:30AM
Did you know that the number one thing our customers leave behind in our lost and found are glasses? Well, it's true! After days, weeks, months, years, decades and centuries of trying to return them to their rightful owners, we have decided the only thing to do is donate them! So we're doing a glass round up. All March long, with our friends at the Denver Five Points Lions Club, we'll be collecting usable eyeglasses at our front counter! Then on Saturday April 6th, we'll be having a fun event of reading, collecting glasses, giving out prizes and saying goodbye to the massive collection we hope to have ready to donate to our friends. Help a child read & learn with The Lions Club and The Bookies!
