Warren Village “Listen to My Story” Spring Gala
Warren Village, a Denver-based non-profit organization focused on helping low-income, single-parent families make the journey from poverty and homelessness to self-sufficiency, will host its seventh annual gala at The Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center, on Saturday, April 30. United Airlines will serve as the presenting sponsor for the fourth year in a row.
This year’s event, titled, “Listen to My Story,” is a celebration of the rich diversity in the journeys that single parents experience on the way to finding Warren Village and while transforming their lives through the organization’s Two-Generation (2Gen) approach.
This signature event—emceed by Gloria Neal, director of public affairs for the office of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, and Warren Village trustee—is Warren Village’s largest annual fundraiser and is critical to providing services to hundreds of families every year. All proceeds directly support programs for both parents and children, including Warren Village’s onsite, four-star-rated Early Learning Center and its main facilities that house 92 families.
More than 400 community and business leaders will attend the event. The evening includes a lively cocktail reception, heartwarming testimonials from families, a delicious seated dinner, a coffee and dessert bar, a live auction hosted by Gary Corbett, and dancing to live music by Hazel Miller & the Collective.
The evening’s distinguished honoree will be Erin Brown, vice president of community investment and impact of the Colorado Health Foundation. Warren Village will recognize Brown for more than 25 years working on behalf of Colorado families, particularly around early education and social equity and inclusion. Brown served as Denver’s first chief equity officer under Mayor Michael B. Hancock.
