Up with People 2019 Gala
Shine your shoes and bust out your fancy attire. It’s time for Up with People’s eighth annual Gala: Turning Hope into Action on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. This event, presented by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in association with Elite Brands of Colorado, has become the must-attend event of season where alumni and friends from around the world come together to celebrate Up with People’s contributions, music, and impact; as well as raise money for a great cause!
Celebrate the achievements of our President’s Award nominee, Denver dance legend Cleo Parker Robinson, and our international partner and Community Impact recipient, Kiwanis International. We are also honored to have Denver’s First Lady, Mary Louise Lee, lend her talents as our Honorary Gala Chair.
Enjoy a fabulous three-course meal while you sip on complimentary wine provided by Elite Brands of Colorado. You even have the opportunity to purchase a limited-time bottle featuring Up with People’s custom-made Gala design!
Bid on fabulous and unique auction items that you can enjoy no matter where you live: from delectable toffees to memorabilia signed by the hottest country music stars to the African safari of your dreams!
Laugh along with our emcee and auction, former Denver Bronco Reggie Rivers, as he engages and wow’s the crowd.
Sing and dance with a LIVE performance by our international cast featuring 100 students from more than 15 different countries. Our songs of hope, peace, and friendship will leave you feeling inspired and committed to making the world a better place.
After the Gala, eat, drink, be merry, and dance at our exclusive After Party on the 27th Floor of the venue.
