at Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center benefiting National Jewish Health at 6 pm
This year’s National Jewish Beaux Arts Ball, presented by the Morgridge Family Foundation, was a wickedly good time, drawing over 1,100 down the yellow brick road. Despite Colorado’s spell of a storm, the room was filled with supporters eager to help fundraise for National Jewish Health’s groundbreaking medical research and treatment.
The event honored Grand Marshals Lindsey and Stanton Dodge, Dianne Eddolls and Glenn Jones, Leslie and Noel Ginsburg, and Elaine and Kevin Kauffman. These couples were recognized for their philanthropy in the Denver community.
As soon as the doors opened to the ballroom, everyone was in complete awe. The Hyatt Regency was completely transformed, with artistic and ornate centerpieces, green and pink up lighting, Oz inspired performers, magic wands and flying monkeys.
Starting with the entry of the goggle-wearing emerald drummers, Vali Entertainment filled the room with magic.The band and vocalists were brilliant, successfully getting guests on their feet and dancing.
Attendees bid on exclusive packages, including viewing the 2016 Academy Awards with Elton John, vacationing at a 16th century Tuscan estate and driving exotic sports cars at High Plains Raceway.
The Fund-A-Need auction allowed guests to make a direct donation to support a specific area of need at National Jewish Health. This year, the funds will be used for eczema and allergy programs.
