DENVER (CBS4) – Ice skaters in pajamas will take over the Southwest Rink at Skyline Park on Wednesday to bring attention to homelessness.
The 10th Annual PJ Day is sponsored by Southwest Airlines and Downtown Denver Partnership. The event raises funds to support Denver’s Road Home and to draw attention to homelessness.
PJ Day will feature open skating and a most creative PJs contest in which the winner will get a pair of round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines.
“PJ Day is a phenomenal event drawing attention to the serious issue of homelessness in our community, and we are pleased to join the Downtown Denver Partnership and Southwest Airlines to kick off the 10th Annual PJ Day here at the Southwest Rink at Skyline Park in downtown Denver,” Mayor Michael Hancock said in a statement. “Events like PJ Day help fund the work of Denver’s Road Home and its partners to provide job training, treatment, sheltering and other services to help the homeless in our community move from a life on the streets to self-sufficiency.”
PJ Day will be held Wednesday from 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Southwest Rink at Skyline Park located next to the historic Daniels and Fisher Tower near the intersection of 16th and Arapahoe Streets.
Skating is free, or rent a pair for $2 or in exchange for a donation to Denver’s Road Home.
