Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope... and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. ~Robert F. Kennedy

We're Baaaaaack!

Hey everyone!
Sorry we have been away for so long. We were super busy with the Dandelion Ball, which is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It was last Saturday, September 12th. It was a huge success! We had over 230 people in attendance! ! It was held at The University of Colorado, at Folsom Field on the Club Level. Its really a beautiful venue with the field and flatirons in the background.

The auction items this year were the best we've ever had. There was a ton of interest in both the silent and live auction! The paddle raiser was also very successful, considering the state of the economy. Thank you to Rob, our auctioneer!

We had several new additions this year: silent auction items that went specifically to clients in benefit of our Capital Campaign. As opposed to it being a highest bidder wins item, everyone who bid bought the specific item for a client. People purchased things such as magazine subscriptions, winter jackets, bus passes, grocery coupons, etc. Thank you to everyone who donated items and services to our auctions! You are appreciated!

Another great addition this year was our emcee, Gary Shapiro from 9news. He did an awesome job kicking off the event and keeping the crowd laughing! Thanks Gary and 9news!

Perhaps one of the best additions this year was the motown band, who had the entire venue dancing until the wee hours of the morning. One on One and The Miles Apart band was beyond phenomenal. Thank you guys!!!

We also had awesome sponsorship, from companies like Caplan and Earnest, John Truhlar and Betty Hoye, Boulder Design Alliance, MircroMotion Emerson, The Schweppe Foundation, Wells Fargo, Henry Ham Insurance, Centerplate, Exempla, Swarztrauber Family, Peter Enichen, Steve and Barbara Taniguichi, Windhorse, Avanti, Boulder Community Hospital, Jim and Linda Karagas, Flatirons Bank, and Roche Colorado. This was a phenomenal year for sponsorship- thank you so much to all of our sponsors!!!

Thank you to everyone who came to support us! We greatly appreciate everything each and every one of you do!

The volunteer turnout was also great. Please let us know if you would like to help in the future!

Last but not least, thank you to the Fund Development network, specifically Kelly Cochran and Sue Williams, for putting on such a wonderful event. The long days and numerous hours must have been painful, but you turned out a great event! Everything was beautiful and wonderful!
