What began 22 years ago as a potluck picnic called A Day in the Country has grown exponentially to an elegant evening gala featuring creatively decorated tables, gourmet hors d’oeuvres and dinner catered by Footers, entertainment by Chris Daniels & the Kings, silent and live auctions, a fun atmosphere and a huge spirit of giving.
Appropriately, on Sept. 22, Louisa and Bobby Journayvaz will open their J-5 Equestrian Center in the Southwest Denver suburbs for Anchor Center’s largest annual signature fundraiser. Former hosts Pamela and James Crowe are serving as honorary chairs. Anchor Center for Blind Children is the philanthropy for Delta Gamma sorority and donations qualify for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit which is quite a compelling incentive to donors.

“See Life Differently is a sentiment that resonates from the moment you walk through the doors at Anchor Center for Blind Children!” says Heather Cameron, executive director. Anchor Center specializes in serving children during the most formative years of their lives, birth through age five, who are blind, have serious visual impairments, or have dual sensory (i. e. visual and auditory) impairments. Anchor Center is beginning its 33rd year and is one of the few nonprofit organizations in the world that specializes in vision services and early intervention.
“90 percent of our graduates go on to public or private schools,” said Cameron. “Sunset in the Country is built on love and built on love for Anchor Center.” For further information:
