Fundraising for and by Bob’s Atomic Burgers

Bob's Atomic Burgers in Golden Colorado

Congratulations to Bob’s Atomic Burgers for the successful completion of their Kickstarter campaign!  Bob’s was concerned that their building would be purchased and redeveloped.  To guard against that, they wanted to buy the building themselves.

Bob’s has always been incredibly supportive of the Golden community, hosting very generous fund-raisers for various local causes.  Golden responded by backing the restaurant in their own fund-raiser, and now, with help from the Golden Civic Foundation, Bob’s Atomic Burgers will be able to buy their building, and continue in that location!

Let’s continue to support Bob’s, and worthy local groups.  Here are some of their upcoming fund-raisers:

Young Life – October 10th
Bell Middle School – October 18th
Mitchell Elementary School – November 14th
Golden Christian Guild – December 5th
Pleasant View Elementary – sometime in December
A toy drive the entire month of November for the Golden Christian Guild

The Delight of Partner Yoga – Instructor: Stef Mattfeld

Sunday, October 18th  |  1:30 – 4:00 PM  |  $40 early bird  |  $45 day-of

Come spend another afternoon learning Partner Yoga. Like Thai massage, partner yoga is a dance between 2 bodies, both playful and meditative. Partner yoga uses the same asanas/postures you may be familiar with in your own yoga practice. By putting them together with 2 people- either mirroring the same posture or doing two different ones, your stretches are deepened, new experiences with balance occur, and most importantly communication and awareness grows with your partner.

This workshop is for anyone, from couch potato to yogini, regardless of age or experience in either yoga. We will be working with the simple moves- fun and effective. Come with a partner, or on your own. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. For more information please contact Stefanie:

Soulful Breathwork – Instructor: Rob Paul

Sunday October 11th  |  6:00 pm – 8:30 pm  |  $35 before 9/27  |  $40 after 9/27  |  $45 at the door

Simple but profound healing.  When we do not give full expression to our emotions in the moment of an event, we end up storing these experiences in our body, and in turn this accumulation of unexpressed emotion negatively affects our lives in countless ways.  This is exactly what soulful breathwork is targeting and releasing, freeing us from their burdens.
