The FACES 7th Annual Grapes Against Wrath Fundraiser attracted more than 200 people at the downtown RedLine event center/gallery in downtown Denver, September 19.

With her mentor–Family Counselor Erin O’Sullivan looking on–Honored Parent Kassandra gave the keynote address on how the organization has helped her prosper and succeed as a single parent. A spirited live auction was led by Rick Rolph who kept the crowd engaged throughout the evening.
