21 Guitar Celebración

The 21st Annual Fiesta on the Plaza was a colorful, festive celebration honoring the Clinica Tepeyac. Local TV personalities, Greg Moss and Belen DeLeon from 9News added to the celebration with their crowd-pleasing talents. DeLeon is a wonderful singer/entertainer who WOWED the audience with her beautiful voice and flirty ways.

Fiesta on the Plaza is Clínica Tepeyac’s major annual fundraising event. The vibrant silent auction was alive amid, what seemed like, a true south of the border market day. The arena at the National Western Arena complex was dancing with color, original art, folk art, music, food, drinks, and lovely people who continue to support the worthy and important Clinica Tepeyac. After shopping, listening to the strolling musicians, enjoying the citrusy libations and oohing & aahing over the array of auction items to bid or buy, guests enjoyed a delicious dinner of Guajillo braised pork with red chili sauce, spaghetti squash and, key lime pie.  The program included folk dancing and a performance by the beautiful Belen DeLeon.

The evening concluded with a silent auction lead by Adam Kevil. He successfully finagled large rolls of dinero from the enthusiastic guests who can now enjoy a Cuban Meal for Ten, a Sonoma Vacation, a week in Beaver Creek, original art by Denver artist, Emanuel Martinez, a much needed Puerto Vallarta beach vaca, and of course, a Denver Broncos Package. Scholarships were hailed and the major awards honored The Colorado Health Foundation as the Outstanding Community Partner Award. The Jim & Gloria Garcia Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service was given to Dr. Harvey Bogard. Max and Elaine Appel took home the Corazon y Alma (Heart and Soul) Award.
