Hi Broncos Fans! I’m Lauren G., and I thought you might be interested in learning about ways that we get ready for the holiday season!
Like many businesses, we have an annual holiday party. On Tuesday, Dec. 6, all 26 cheerleaders and our coaches brought gifts to celebrate, white elephant* style!
*If you are not aware, a white elephant gift exchange is when each person brings a wrapped gift. Each person picks a number out of a hat, and when it is your turn, you have the option to either unwrap one of the mystery gifts, or steal someone else’s gift!
Now our exchange gets vicious, in a fun way of course! Girls openly steal from one another, even from their best friends! However, one important rule is to never steal from the coaches! Overall, it was a fun night full of laughs, food, and good company.
Another important aspect of a cheerleader’s holiday season is calendar sales! During the month of December, we send girls all over the Denver Metro Area not only to sell our 2012 Cheerleader Calendar, but to also get one-on-one interaction with our No. 1 fans. The Calendar was shot in beautiful Beaver Creek, Colorado, and what an easy Christmas gift!?! The girls on location will even personalize and sign the calendar! If you know any Broncos fans, stop by and meet the cheerleaders. You’ll walk away with one more name crossed off your gift list! To find out where the cheerleaders will be selling, check out the website:
Also feel free to buy a calendar at one location, and stop by all the other locations to gather up more signatures!
The month of December is always filled with so many charity events that can help raise spirits both mentally and physically. All the cheerleaders are busy in the community, helping the less fortunate in every way they can. On Tuesday, Dec. 6, Toni and I volunteered our time at two elementary schools. These schools knew what it meant when we asked them to “Tackle Hunger.” The children brought in cans of food in order to stock up the food banks for this busy, and financially difficult, time of the year. Along with Miles, and four Broncos players, Toni and I shared our goals and aspirations with the children, and even answered questions written and asked by the elementary children. It was a great reminder of how important it is to give back, especially during the holidays, when even I tend to get caught up in a little shopping.
Well Broncos County, I can’t wait to see you at the upcoming Bears Game this Sunday! If you have the time, I would love to see what you all are up to this holiday season. Post your favorite charity work or holiday traditions so we can all be enlightened by how many ways there are to help others during these challenging times. Happy Holidays, and as always, GO BRONCOS!!!
