Past Charity Fundraisers
Prior to becoming a non-profit
TESSA was established in May 1977 in response to a high rate of calls to local law enforcement from women threatened or assaulted by their partners. At the time, Domestic Violence was considered a private matter and resources were difficult to locate, if they existed at all. With assistance from within the legal and philanthropic communities TESSA emerged as an information provider and resource referral service. That initial effort has evolved into a multi-faceted agency that includes a confidential Safehouse, Victim Advocacy, Counseling and Children’s Programs, a 24/7 Safe Line, and Community Outreach and Education. Through these efforts, TESSA strives to realize our vision of a community free of personal violence for all.
Between our Spring Fling 2021and
Costume Party 2021 we were able to donate 2 checks to TESSA. This was by far our largest donation to date from our organization. We want to thank all our volunteers, crafters, associates and attendees! Thank you so very much!
This year we tried something different and unfortunately it did not work out. We tried to start a Go Fund Me account since so many people were still at home and ask for donations for those people one the front lines: the nurses; doctors; EMS; and staff at the hospital. We were saddened by the fact this fundraiser didn't take off.
Care and Share Food Bank
At Care and Share Food Bank, we believe that no one should go hungry. Every day, we provide food to our partner food pantries and meal sites across Southern Colorado to serve our neighbors in need because well-fed communities are better for us all.
Care and Share exists to ensure that the one in eight Southern Coloradans at risk of hunger have access to enough healthy and nutritious food to thrive. We know that children without adequate access to food cannot develop successfully, families cannot plan for their future, and seniors find it more difficult to remain independent.
Colorado Springs Therapeutic
Spring - 2019
The Colorado Springs Therapeutic Riding Center was established in August 2008 at the Mark Reyner Stables in Palmer Park. The center offers an alternative form of therapy to those living with physical, emotional, and cognitive challenges.
We offer equine-assisted therapies to children and adults living with various forms of trauma, developmental delays, autism, cerebral palsy, blindness, deafness, down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, batten disease, and cancer.
The Colorado Springs Therapeutic Riding Center offers an enjoyable and professional therapeutic riding and hippotherapy programs for children and adults ages 2 years and older in private and small groups for 30 minute lessons. Our lessons are instructed by certified PATH International Instructors (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship).
Ronald McDonald House
We are proud to say, that we worked with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Colorado (RMHCSC) for this years party! The RMHCSC "keeps families with critically ill children close to each other and provides the care and resources they need, when they need it most". With that in mind, the Colorado Springs Ladies Events took the opportunity to ask everyone attending
the event, to donate from their approved House Wish List.
In May 2017 we had our Teddy Bear Picnic and after delivering the Teddy Bears, we discovered from an officer at the Gold Hill Police Station of a need for NEW SOCKS for the Homeless in the Colorado Springs area. After speaking with him, we realized this was quite a great need! So for our Costume Party in 2018, we asked everyone to please bring NEW SOCKS to donate for the Homeless! Below is the Organization we donated the socks too, along with many blankets by an anynomous donor.
Teddy Bear Picnic
Spring - 2017
Donations were amazing! Not only did we receive donations from the ladies who attended the Colorado Springs Ladies Events, but the Radisson Hotel Colorado Springs collected hundreds of donations from staff, clients and even guests!! We had so many bears and friends that we were able to donate ALL around the city to: Police Stations; Fire Stations; and a KinderCare.
Costume Parties 2006-2016
Donations made at our events between 2006 and 2017 were usually given to Care and Share Food Pantry.
Many years we made deliveries to the warehouse with boxes and bags of canned and boxed goods
