This year’s sold out event was held on Saturday, April 13 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the Denver Tech Center. The eventful evening began at 6 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction featuring items ranging from autographed professional sports memorabilia and a hand-welded fire pit by Denver Academy students to restaurant gift certificates and the chance to be Librarian for a Day.
A beautiful performance of A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman by the DA High School Choir kicked off the touching program, followed by dinner. Later in the evening, guests heard from seniors about their DA journey and how the school has positively transformed their lives. The evening concluded with a paddle raiser and a live auction which included a range of items from a private party with the headmaster to an African Safari. Through the combined efforts, over $300,000 was raised for DA’s Tuition Assistance Program. For more information on Denver Academy, please visit www.denveracademy.org.
