2012 Gathering Volunteer Celebration

Cheers to Our Volunteers!

This year’s Volunteer Recognition Event was a blast, with over 200 volunteers in attendance at the MillerCoors Visitor Center on the evening of Friday May 4, 2012.  The event kicked off with a private brewery tour where attendees discovered what goes on behind-the-scenes at MillerCoors, including viewings of the large brew kettles and historic caves.

After the tour everyone gathered in the Visitor Center space for a full taco bar and enjoyed complimentary beverages donated by MillerCoors. While attendees mingled and noshed, they also had an opportunity to participate in a photo project highlighting the rewards of volunteering at the Gathering. The outcome of this project, a slide show, will be featured on the Gathering’s revamped website in the coming months.

The auditorium was filled with folks sitting and standing, to honor the recipients of the 2011 Service Awards. The crowd cheered as Gathering staff member Marianne Bach gave personal tributes to each award winner.

The evening ended as everyone re-entered the Visitor Center space to enjoy some Classy Girl Cupcakes and coffee before departing. A special Thank You to all Board members, volunteers and staff who helped make this event so memorable for our dedicated volunteers.
