Deep Rock Water Honored by Governor and Mayor on its 115th Birthday; Deep Rock Celebrates as Presenting Sponsor for City Park Jazz Concert Series
DENVER, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor Guillermo Vidal have issued proclamations honoring Deep Rock Water on its 115th anniversary this year. In order to celebrate with a big birthday bash, Deep Rock Water has signed on to be the presenting sponsor of the City Park Jazz concert series this summer.
Deep Rock Water also announces that the company will be taking donations and providing a portion of the proceeds from sales at the jazz concert series, and from its operations this summer, to benefit Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation.
In his proclamation in April, Gov. Hickenlooper declared that because of its positive impact on the region during 115 years in business, Coloradoans were encouraged to observe June 1 as a day to honor Deep Rock Water (www.deeprockwater.com).
Also because of its contributions to the economic vitality and quality of life in the city, Denver Mayor Vidal declared the entire month of June as Deep Rock Water Month in Denver.
“We’re awed. We’re honored,” exclaimed Deep Rock Water President and CEO Tom Schwein. “But when you think about it, our 115 years in business have actually been a partnership between us and the community we serve every day. Businesses don’t get to be well over a century old by themselves.”
Emily McNellis, Corporate Giving Coordinator at Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation (www.thechildrenshospitalfoundation.org), commented that Deep Rock Water was founded in 1896, and was only 12 years old when the hospital was founded in 1908, so both share a rich legacy in the community.
“Every dollar we receive in donations from companies like Deep Rock Water and generous folks in the community ensures Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation will continue to support the best healthcare outcomes for children,” said McNellis. “Such generosity helps us meet our mission to be a national leader in pediatric healthcare delivery, research and education.”
With the June 5 kick off of its 25th season nearing, City Park Jazz is seeking additional support from the Denver business community to keep the summer concert series alive and free to the public.
