5 Star Rental Named Business Partner of the Month

5 Star Rental Named Business Partner of the Month

We were honored to get the opportunity to name 5 Star Rental as our Business Partner of the Month for May! 5 Star Rental has been a supporter of Serve Denton since day one.

They have been an in-kind sponsor for Serve Denton’s annual gala, Celebration, for the past few years, donating tables, chairs, pipe and drape, silverware, napkins, vases and more. If you've ever been a part of Celebration, you know it takes a team to pull it off, and they eagerly join in every year. They were a major in-kind sponsor for this year's Celebration, which helped Serve Denton put on a successful event.

Subaru Shares the Love with Serve Denton

This Christmas season, Huffines Subaru Denton chose Serve Denton as the local charity of choice for their 2016 “Share the Love” campaign! From November 17, 2016, to January 3, 2017, Subaru will donate $250 to Serve Denton for each Subaru vehicle sold or leased at Huffines Subaru Denton located at 5150 S I-35 Exit 461, Denton, TX 76210. 15272259_1157198051038775_201977206220257453_o

More Ways Subaru Will Support

 

Huffines Subaru Denton has been a supporter of Serve Denton since 2015. Along with generously contributing financially to Serve Denton, Subaru management and employees will be volunteering at the January Denton Mobile Pantry, a free monthly food pantry with Tarrant Area Food Bank and the Denton Hunger Coalition that takes place in the Serve Denton parking lot!

Their employees will also be partnering with experts from Texas Woman’s University to build a professionally designed butterfly garden at The Wheeler House, a Serve Denton project. The Wheeler House is a transitional housing facility for moms and kids in a housing crisis managed by Giving Hope, Inc. and an affordable health clinic managed by Health Services of North Texas. Subaru’s experts will help make The Wheeler House a zero landfill facility by developing a variety of practices that will be taught to the families.

More Ways You Can Support

 

Aside from purchasing or leasing a car from Subaru, another way you can get involved in the “Share the Love” campaign is by downloading Subaru’s recording of, “Put a Little Love in Your Heart.” This song was recorded by an amazing cast of people whose lives have been positively affected by this yearly event. All profits from this song will go toward Subaru’s national charity partners whose mission is to provide services to those in need.

 

We are so grateful to have been chosen as Subaru’s charity of choice and are looking forward to the many ways they will help us make an impact on the city of Denton! Since "Share the Love"’s inception in 2008, Subaru and its retailers have donated almost $90 million towards organizations that provide services for those in need. The “Share the Love” campaign is more than just purchasing a car; it’s about making a positive impact in the world and in local neighborhoods.

For more information about the ‘Share the Love” campaign, email co-founding board member Priscilla Sanders at psand66@gmail.com.

Brookshire’s Named Business Partner of the Month!

Since our inception, Brookshire’s Food & Pharmacy has been partnering with Serve Denton, providing major donations and becoming one of our top sponsors. This is why we named them our November Business Partner of the Month! They have continued to support our organization and events throughout the past few years, as well as occasionally providing food and drinks for our committee meetings and workshops. This past summer, Brookshire’s supported Denton County Young Professionals’ Sand Volleyball Tournament, which benefited Serve Denton and the Denton Community Food Center. Brookshire’s didn’t just financially support the event, but they joined us for the all-day tournament, providing cold bottles of water, pre-cut fruit and protein bars to all the participants.

Brookshire’s not only plays a huge role in many of our events but also contributes through our gift card program, ScripZone. When Serve Denton supporters purchase Brookshire’s gift cards through ScripZone, Serve Denton receives a portion of the proceeds.

We have so much gratitude for their constant support and eagerness to get involved with our organization. Their support helps enable us to fulfill our mission to support other nonprofits that open doors for people to become self-sufficient. Brookshire’s has been a loyal contributor of Serve Denton, and we look forward to many more years of working with them.

Thank you Brookshire’s for being our partner in self-sufficiency and for your commitment to giving back!

Serve Denton’s First Topgolf Tournament

For those who have never experienced Topgolf, check out this video below to learn how it works. You can also check out Topgolf’s FAQ page by Clicking Here.

On November 3, Topgolf is hosting Serve Denton’s third-annual golf tournament from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.! All proceeds will benefit Serve Denton to help lower overhead costs for local nonprofit agencies that office with us so more of their money will go toward their mission.

Each bay accommodates four to six golfers and costs $500. This will include unlimited soft drinks and appetizers, so you won’t be leaving hungry!

Individual golfers can also register for $100 a piece. All participants will receive a Lifetime Membership card, which allows participants to keep track of their score. The card also provides free golf clubs for adults (men and women) and kids. They even have clubs for you lefties out there.

We will be having some fun competitions throughout the afternoon, with great prizes for individuals and teams! Some of these competitions include: Longest Shot, Hole-In-One, Best Overall Team Score, Best Individual Score, Battle of the Banks, Car Race, Beat the Pro, Top Lady’s Score and more! The nine winners will compete for prizes such as rounds of golf for four, steak dinners and a Yeti cooler. There will also be 15 silent auction items with packages including rounds of golf for four and themed baskets.

We will have three sponsorship opportunities: Champion, Eagle and Birdie.

Here’s the cool part, the Champion ($5,000) level sponsor will receive a one-year Topgolf Corporate Platinum Membership valued at $5,225! This sponsor will also receive two platinum bays to accommodate four to six people. Your company logo will be placed on Serve Denton’s website and social media platforms, your company banner will be placed at Topgolf during the event, and your logo will be displayed on seven of Serve Denton’s private lounge T.V.s.

The Eagle ($2,500) and Birdie ($1,000) sponsorships include premium bays along with highly visible advertising opportunities for your company.

The fundraiser will take place at 3760 Blair Oaks Dr. The Colony, TX 75056. We would love to have you be apart of our first Topgolf Tournament. If you want to sign up, just click on the button below!
