Old hollywood gala

We rolled out the red carpet to benefit kids with pediatric cancer on August 10 at the Seawell Ballroom (Denver, CO)!

Guests got glammed up “old Hollywood” style and joined co-chairs Michael Ditchfield, Laura Kruger, and Delinda Fatianow for this 2nd annual star studded event.

The evening featured exciting live and silent auctions, including the “Restaurant Walk of Fame,” appetizers, dinner, and deserts by Epicurean Catering, fine wines, local brews, and a special signature drink, plus live entertainment by the 18-piece Flatirons Jazz Orchestra!
