Girl Scout Cadettes from Troop 60789 in Aurora were recently special guests at a Colorado Rockies baseball game. On August 7, 2018, the girls were recognized by UCHealth as part of the organization’s “Moments to Shine” program. They were on the field before the game, taking pictures with Dinger and catcher Tony Wolters. The announcer told the crowd about their project and the girls were shown on the jumbo screen.
“FANS, PLEASE DIRECT YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FIELD. THE COLORADO ROCKIES WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME A GROUP OF SPECIAL GUESTS WHO ARE HERE AS PART OF U-C-HEALTH’S “MOMENTS TO SHINE” PROGRAM.
TODAY, WE ARE EXITED TO WELCOME AURORA GIRL SCOUT TROOP 6-0-7-8-9. EARLIER THIS YEAR, THIS GROUP OF YOUNG WOMEN WERE ABLE TO ADVOCATE FOR CHILDREN BY WORKING WITH THE AURORA CITY COUNCIL TO PASS AN ORDINANCE BANNING ADULTS FROM SMOKING IN VEHICLES WHEN PASSENGERS YOUNGER THAN 18 ARE PRESENT. THE BAN IS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN COLORADO, AND WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE HARD WORK OF MAKENNA, AMELIA, MICAELA, JULIANNA AND SOFIA TO LEND A VOICE TO THE VOICELESS. U-C-HEALTH SALUTES TROOP 6-0-7-8-9 FOR THEIR DETERMINATION, COMPASSION AND INSPIRING JOURNEY TO MAKE A CHANGE.
FANS, LET’S GIVE IT UP FOR THIS GROUP OF YOUNG WOMEN AND WELCOME THEM TO COORS FIELD FOR TODAY’S GAME!”
After the National Anthem, the girls went to their seats to enjoy the game. Unfortunately, the Rockies lost, but the girls were fortunate enough to be recognized for their efforts in passing the law.

Join us for Girl Scout Day with the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, Aug. 26, 2018! All Girl Scouts, friends, and family are invited. Cheer on the Rockies as they take on the St. Louis Cardinals. All Girl Scouts attending can participate in a pre-game parade and will get a special event patch. The game starts at 1:10 p.m. Girl Scouts wanting to participate in the pre-game parade will want to come about two hours earlier to prepare (more information coming closer to the game).
There are several ticket options to choose from and ticket prices range between $20-$55 depending on the location and tickets selected. For more information about ticket prices and locations, please go www.rockies.com/scout and use the promo code GS2018. GSCO will receive a donation back on each ticket sold using this unique code.
Event patches will be given to those who purchase tickets through our GSCO link and promo code. This is the only way to get the special event patch! Last year, this event sold out early, so you’ll want to purchase tickets soon for this year’s game. Questions? Please contact Hannah Browne at email@example.com. We hope to see you there!
When purchasing tickets, you can add the promo code and a specific ticket page/map will open. The highlighted sections are the special Scout Day sections and you can purchase tickets with our special GSCO deal in those sections.
Girl Scouts, friends, families, neighbors, and anyone wanting to help support GSCO and these events are welcome.
The Scout who refers the most tickets to the game will be able to present the Color Guard at the game.
