October 3, 2014 – SpaceUnited and the Ginn Mill will co-host a trivia fundraiser on Monday, October 6 from 6-10 p.m. MDT. The event will feature space-themed trivia, free popcorn, and various prizes.
The Ginn Mill will donate all of the profits from the evening to SpaceUnited, and attendees will also be able to offer their financial support. These funds will contribute to the nonprofit’s operating costs, which allow it to execute humanitarian initiatives using space technology.
“Jimmy and Jonathan at The Ginn Mill have been nothing but supportive during our partnership,” said Adam Brinckerhoff, SpaceUnited Development Engineer and the fundraiser’s host. “They are a top sponsor of our organization and we’re excited to co-host this and many more events with them in the future.”
SpaceUnited’s projects include procuring satellite imagery to aid in disaster recovery, researching and developing a series of life sustaining buildings to improve the quality of life worldwide, and helping to provide free internet access to people who are without it. SpaceUnited is based on the principle that space technology can and should be used for the sole purpose of improving humanitarian initiatives.
The space trivia fundraiser is on the official calendar of events for the United Nation’s World Space Week. World Space Week was launched by the United Nations General Assembly in 1999 to celebrate “the contributions of space science and technology to the betterment of the human condition.” It is always celebrated October 4-10 and has grown into the largest public space event on Earth.
The Ginn Mill is located at 2041 Larimer St., Denver, CO
