GroundFloor Media client Youth Opportunity Foundation‘s biggest annual fundraiser is Mustache4Cash/Color4Kidz. The concept is pretty simple – individuals sign up to color their hair or grow a mustache for about four weeks, and ask friends and family to “sponsor” their efforts along the way. All of the proceeds benefit at–risk youth mentoring programs in Colorado.
To get you in the mood, GFM’s Jim Licko has created a video extolling the virtues of rocking a ‘stache.
Congratulations to Denver-based mortgage due diligence firm (and Linhart PR client) Allonhill, which made the first cut in The Wall Street Journal’s “Big Innovation, Small Business” contest that highlights companies that employed smart strategies to survive the current “Great Recession. Allonhill launched with a small team during the 2008 housing collapse and has grown to more than 350 employees and is projecting $36 million in revenue in 2011.
Allonhill and Colorado-based companies M&E Painting and Travelers Haven LLC are being featured on The Wall Street Journal’s small business blog. Readers can vote for their favorite stories through Friday, and the Reader’s Choice winner will be revealed in a special report in November.
Registration has opened for PRSA CoLab, a full-day experiment in innovative thinking and discussion for Colorado’s public relations professionals. The hands-on, intentionally creative and challenging workshops will encourage and inspire participants to build chemistry with other industry professionals, test their limits and expand their capabilities. The CoLab will feature top speakers, energizing activities and a collaborative work environment.
