On July 28, 2017 Mark Young Construction, Inc. hosted the 3rd Annual Charity Golf tournament benefiting American Military Family. American Military Family is a local charity that aids veterans in the community with a huge focus on preventing veteran suicide. American Military family brought over 10 veterans to the event which really brought the message home to all the players, sponsors, volunteers and other attendees. We are so proud to be able to contribute to this charity that helps so many of our heroes.
The tournament was sold out and raised over $20,000! Check it out!
Mark Young Construction had the honor of hosting Denver Public Schools’ Bear Valley International Middle School for a Career Day. Fifteen 6th graders learned through a Kata presentation about the importance of communication, following instructions, and practicing to get better through a Lego activity. Following that, they had the opportunity to help build a giant human foosball table and more importantly, had the chance to play. Thank you to everyone at MYC who helped as well as to DPS and Bear Valley International MS for coming out and learning more about the construction industry.
On Saturday, April 29, The American Subcontractors Association of Colorado held its annual awards night in Denver to recognize outstanding performance in various categories. Our own Matt Carlson was recognized as the “Outstanding Field Professional of the Year” as part of the safety recognition for contractor execution of safety in the field. As superintendent on the King Soopers #125 in Castle Rock, Matt’s work in pre-planning, coordination, and execution of safety on the project earned him this statewide recognition. Well done Matt and congratulations!
On February 24th, Mark Young Construction, Inc. hosted a charity fundraiser to support the Denver Fire Fighter’s Burn Foundation at CB & Potts. This fun event challenged cooks to create a chili that could win the favor of attendees and the guest judges. Everyone who attended voted for their favorite by placing a Lego piece in the chili cup of their choosing. The fire fighters were the guest judges and awarded first and second place, with the popular vote being the deciding factor for third place. The winners took home prizes for their hard work. There were 20 chili entries. First place was awarded to Dennis Wolfe from MYC for his Big Ass Elk chili, second place went to Garrett Burrell from MYC for his Chili Wailua, and third place went to Scott Marks from Horizon Reprographics for his Dragon’s Breath chili. There was also a creative chili name competition that attendees voted on and the winner was Pete Wybenga from Europtics for his chili named Hydrant Humper.
The event also showcased wonderful silent auction items to bid on from local companies. Attendees came from all backgrounds of the AEC community and had the opportunity to mingle and network. Kristen Tonsager from Clutch Design Studios said “I was impressed at the quantity of entries; from spicy green chili to traditional red chili – the spice and flavor did not disappoint! What a great event to benefit a great cause!”
MYC would like to thank everyone who participated and attended. Thanks to our amazing chili pot sponsors, the more than 75 attendees, and silent auction sponsors, we were able to hand over $5,417 to the Denver Fire Fighters representatives who were there for the Burn Foundation.
On Saturday, September 24th 14 MYC employees and friends volunteered at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg. Volunteers helped take care of the animal habitats by weeding the old alpaca enclosure which included cactus, burrs, and thistles as well as clearing out the shed in the area. After working hard, the volunteers were rewarded with a tour on the walkways to hear about the rescue stories and visit the content animals who now can call the sanctuary their forever home.
