Money raised by Broomfield-area nonprofits on Colorado Gives Day ensures area recipients, including the most-vulnerable populations, will be fed, clothed and otherwise served. On Dec. 4, the state's largest day of giving, four local organizations Bal Swan Children's Center, Broomfield FISH, Flatirons Habitat for Humanity, and FRIENDS of Broomfield collectively raised more than $130,000 in just 24 hours. It was the first time the groups joined forces for the annual donation day to "promote health, housing, education and inclusively" across the Broomfield community. Representatives from the organizations worked with Gordon Biersch Brewing Company from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday, including a special happy hour. Fifteen percent of all sales went to the nonprofits, which divided them equally. "There's something about working collaborative together on this kind of thing instead of being competitive," Dayna Scott, executive director of Broomfield FISH, said. "There's a different feel when you're doing it as a partnership for the good of the community instead of 'we need money just for our organization.
