Annette is a friend of mine who is not only a wonderful, generous, bad-a**, hard-working lady who serves as a volunteer on the Board of Directors for the Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce and DriveSmart, but she also runs her own nonprofit, Taproot Guru, and works as the marketing coordinator for Cornerstone Auto Glass. She does so much for our community behind the scenes, any donations to help with her medical expenses, and healing thoughts and prayers for her swift and full recovery, are greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Hello Friends,


On Friday August 17th, Annette fell from our second-story deck onto concrete and was flight-for-lifed to St Anthony's hospital. She has a frontal lobe and posterior brain contusion with severe bleeding, multiple facial fractures, strained cervical ligaments and transverse compression breaks in her L2 an L4 vertebrae.

She is currently under 24-hour watch in the Intensive Care Unit. At this time, the doctors are unsure how long she will need to remain in ICU. If all goes well, she will be moved to a rehabilitation facility. Her time spent in ICU and rehab will be determined by her progress and recovery speed.

Unfortunately, Annette does not have medical insurance. We truly appreciate any financial support you can offer in this extremely difficult time. All funds will go toward her medical expenses.

You are all such a beautiful part of Annette's life and she is beyond lucky to know such amazing people.

Thank you so much,
Syliva, Curt, Theryn, Winter and Lucas

Edit to update: Another option to donate that goes a little further is to call St. Anthony's billing directly and make a payment to her account.

An update from Theryn yesterday:

Hello Everyone, Annette is still in the Progressive Care Unit. We are hoping that she is well enough to move to rehab in a week.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, and who have sent well-wishes, prayers, and healing energy her way.

Good news! Annette's daughter posted this 30 minutes ago:

Hello Everyone, Annette is still in the rehab center at St. Anthony's. She just had her feeding tube removed.

Annette was able to walk a few days ago about 100 ft unassisted by a walker (she still had her feeding tube in) so this is great progress!

Her GoFundMe is now at 6,500 of the $65,000 they estimated they would need. Please keep those donations coming if you can, they are deeply appreciated!

Another way to help Annette!

By Julie Dikken, Publisher & Editor Evergreen.MacaroniKid.com
Sep 13, 2018

Our community is one of the biggest reasons many of us live here. It has breathtaking views, is quiet, wonderful businesses that contributes to its uniqueness, but what makes this community really stand out is the people in it.

One person who strives each and every day to make this community a beautiful place is Annette Aldridge. If you are involved in the Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce, the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce, Drive Smart or many other non-profit organizations, you have most likely crossed paths with Annette. You may have seen her ringing the bell outside King Soopers during the holidays, or helping at many of our community events. Annette is a pillar in our community and always eager to lend a helping hand.

Now we have the chance to return the favor.

$50 of every Sinsational Smile® teeth whitening service that Chrisy of Healthy Smiles performs between now and October 31st, 2018 will be donated to Annette's Health Care Fund. Brighten your smile with a Sinsational Smile® Teeth whitening treatment for only $99, and help Annette have a brighter future at the same time! Make your appointment or purchase a teeth whitening certificate before 10/31/18 to help this cause. (Certificates will expire one year from date of purchase)

Visit healthysmilesconifer.com for more information or call (303) 838-7003 to book an appointment now! Healthy Smiles is located at 25997 Conifer Rd in the same building as Cabin Creek Smokehouse BBQ and the Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce.

Things are looking good and coming together - we've got 66 confirmed attendees! However, we have few confirmed volunteers and need about 5 more. Please let us know if you'd like to help! Message Sounds Smart Trivia on Facebook or post here and we'll connect you to the organizers!

Not all of our sponsors and donors are on our poster because there are just too many! Thanks in advance to Aspen Park Wine and Spirits, Brooks Place Tavern and Mad Jack's Mountain Brewery for donating to the Friends of Anet fundraiser. We are going to be SO well hydrated!

Just a few tables left! Sign up here: squareup.com/store/Conifer-Area-Chamber-Commerce
