More than 420 guests helped us celebrate the Second Annual Blue Jean Bash on September 10, 2016, at the EXDO Event Center. Thanks to our sponsors, silent auction donors, and live auction donors, we raised $145,000 for Clothes To Kids of Denver.
Our honorary event chairs, Governor John W. Hickenlooper and First Lady Robin P. Hickenlooper, helped to make the evening a huge success. Robin served as our keynote speaker and gave an inspiring presentation. And to top it off, the Governor autographed a copy of his memoir, The Opposite of Woe: My Life in Beer and Politics, which sold to the highest bidder for $1,500!
Our wonderful event co-chairs, Joyce Meyers and Jo Ann Wickens (pictured above), and our fabulous Blue Jean Bash planning committee worked hard to create a memorable evening for our guests.
Special thanks to Cathy Huttner (pictured above with her daughter, Hannah) for single handedly acquiring more than $10,000 worth of items for our silent auction. Wow!
