 What is going down on Saturday? A whole lot of good times, that’s what.

Verve is having an epic night out. Thanks to Verve’s own Brendan McManus, Lucky Pie Pizza & Taphouse in downtown Denver will be hosting this amazing shindig this Saturday, May 2nd, from 4pm-8pm. Why are we having this epic night out you ask? Well beyond bringing some of Denver’s coolest CrossFit nerds together for food, drinks, and laughter, this event is also acting as a fundraiser to help send #teamverve to the South Regionals in Dallas, TX. 

Following the CrossFit Games Open, Verve found it’s team placed high enough in the South West Region to earn an invite to the South Regionals. The team will be taking off for Texas Thursday May 14th and will compete all weekend. To help the team with their journey Lucky Pie Pizza will have several food and drink specials for Verve on Saturday. A portion of the proceeds from these specials will be donated to #teamverve. But wait. That’s not all. Starting Saturday morning, at the gym there will be several clipboards with items listed for silent auction. The clipboards will later be taken to Lucky Pie to finish off the auction that night. Some of the items up for auction include a year’s supply of bacon from Tenderbelly, 2 Copper ski passes for the 2016 ski season, and some PT sessions with Verve trainers. We will also have raffle tickets for purchase. Raffle prizes include such items as a case of Kill Cliff, gift certificates to Jake’s, and first crack at custom Verve/ Progenex shirts that have been made in limited supply in celebration of Verve’s invite to Regionals. 

This event is not just for Verve members, bring your family and friends. We have been told the Kentucky Derby will be broadcasted in the bar. So there are no excuses not to come hang out, talk CrossFit, paleo, and how to find a good pair of jeans that fit your squatter’s butt. #teamverve will be present and accounted for, providing you an opportunity to meet the guys and gals that have been training hard to represent Verve to the highest in Dallas. 

Come one, come all, and bring an extra dollar or two because for every dollar raised, #teamverve will say thank you with a burpee. (Yes, they will be divided up between the whole team. And yes, they will be paid back in full after Regionals.)

#teamverve thanks you in advance for all your support!! On a side note, if you happen to be an avid instagramer, the hashtag #teamverve appears to be shared with a modeling agency. So we are on a mission to flood it with pictures of people working out instead. Feel free to use the hashtag liberally.
