Glendale Raptors Join Four Points by Sheraton Denver Southeast and Animal Planet's Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald for Second Annual Halloween Costume Drive & Halloween Party for Kunsberg School at National Jewish Medical and Research Center

GLENDALE, Colo., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Utilizing a new, innovative twist on the popular Christmas toy drive, the Glendale Raptors Rugby Football Team will join Four Points by Sheraton Denver Southeast and give back to the community with a "costume closet".

Guests, hotel staff and the community may donate new costumes for the Kunsberg School, a facility for chronically ill children at National Jewish Medical and Research Center.

"The Glendale Raptors are proud to be part of the second annual Halloween Costume Drive," commented Wendy Cook, Head Coach Glendale Sr. Women Raptors.

Through October 20, the second annual Halloween Costume Drive will tap into Four Points' commitment to spreading the word of Simple Pleasures(SM) and the brand's core values of fun, giving comfort and making people smile.

"Many times we do not realize how fortunate we are. Interacting with the kids from the Kunsberg School and experiencing their enthusiasm and zest for life, despite chronic illness, gives us a greater appreciation for what it means to face adversity in a positive manner. It truly reminds us that our challenges are small in comparison," Ms. Cook said.

The Glendale Raptors will also be hosting a Halloween breakfast party for the students of Kunsberg School on October 23rd at 8:30 am at National Jewish Medical Center. The festivities will include costumes, food and games as well as entertainment by Denver's own Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald, the well known star of Animal Planet's Emergency Vet and stand-up comedian.

New, unwrapped costumes may be dropped off at Four Points by Sheraton Denver Southeast, 6363 East Hampden Avenue.

Kunsberg School is a unique day school program for kindergarten through eighth-grade students whose chronic illnesses may prohibit their attendance in a normal public school. Students receive individual and structured education programs to assist them in achieving academic and physical excellence, and prepare them to become independent, self reliant and responsible. From three nurses, the 71 students in the school learn specific medical self-care practices, enabling them to monitor and manage their illnesses and to go on to lead productive, meaningful and active lives.
