In Memory of Noel Cunningham

The event will also include a special tribute to Denver philanthropist and restaurateur Noel Cunningham, who was a great supporter of the Shining Stars Foundation and was known for his incredible giving - both locally and internationally. Noel provided lunch to the Shining Stars families each year before Winter Games Program at Strings. He was also the supporter who called in favors and was able to send the Shining Stars kids in private jets to Aspen for the 2010 and 2011 Winter Games Programs, when the travel by bus would have been longer than normal due to a rock slide and an accident.  Noel was a generous, giving person who knew no boundaries when trying to help someone else.
