To help shoppers with their educational, physical and financial goals for 2017, Colorado Mills hosted Denver7’s free New Year’s resolution event on Jan. 28.
“I came all the way from Hudson after seeing this on Facebook,” said Nicole Watanabe, who visited the event. “I am looking to get healthier this year, and am thinking about going back to school to get my Masters.”
Organizations like Lutheran Medical Center, Colorado State University-Global Campus and area beauty and wellness groups all had booths where they gave away samples and information to visitors.
“This is the third time we’ve hosted this event here,” said Brenda Cleary, director of marketing at Colorado Mills. “We’ve seen it grow each year, and have around 32 vendors this year for guests.”
Going back to school is often a resolution for people, and that’s one of the reasons Colorado State University-Global Campus is the event’s key sponsors, explained Brandon Pagani, who was at the school’s booth.
“This is an ideal event for us, and we’re seeing more people interested in online learning,” he added. “There’s a lot of people looking to come back to school and starting, or finishing, their degree.”
The resolution event wasn’t all work and no play, however. For children there were balloon animals, free food, and a cash box for all ages. Visitors received free makeovers, chair massages and goofed off in a photo booth. Denver7 News anchors and Lace Morris, from “The Bachelor” and “Bachelor in Paradise” were also there to meet fans.
“We’re helping find inspiration along the way with our fantastic mix of stores, restaurants and experiences as our state’s ultimate destination for the New Year New You Expo,” said Kimra Perkins, general manager at Colorado Mills. “This is a perfect occasion to reset wellness and style goals for the year.”
