HIGHLAND — One of the oldest mansions in Denver has new owners and a new attitude. The Lumber Baron Inn, known for its rich history and elegant Victorian architecture, is opening its doors to the community on Sunday, December 18th, from 1pm to 5pm, to bring community together in the spirit of kindness. While there is no admission required to enjoy the festivities, the Lumber Baron is collecting donations for Almost Home, an organization that helps Coloradans with emergency shelter.
For their inaugural year, The Lumber Baron Inn is pulling out all the stops, offering free Santa visits, a petting zoo, a backyard camp fire with marshmallows and s’mores, a station for composing letters to Santa, live holiday music, local artisan booths, and a cash-bar with special holiday libations for purchase, all tucked within a delightfully decorated venue. It just feels like Christmas.
When asked why she is not charging an admission for this event, Lumber Baron Owner and Baroness, Elaine Bryant, said “I cannot bear the idea that any child would be denied participation. I want everyone to be included. I don’t want anyone to be turned away because they cannot pay” And so it is. An event
to support the community in more ways than one was born. Instead of paying to attend this event, Elaine asks that attendees bring an unused item to support Almost Home, a local shelter than supports families in need of emergency shelter. The unused items that would be most helpful include: gift cards for grocery stores and gas stations, winter coats and outerwear.
Guests are asked to RSVP through the Facebook event page if they attend to join the fun: https://www.facebook.com/events/1199121593516246
