The gala begins at 6 p.m. with cocktails and an illustrated tour of the Denver Academy’s early years. After guests are seated for dinner, a video featuring comments from alumni, founders, and school leaders will be played, and host Debbie Scheer will join Twarogowski in describing how far the school has come. over its 50 years and offer a look into the future.
Scheer will also convene the live auction, where items on offer include a trip to Hawaii, an African safari, reserved parking at Denver Academy for the upcoming school year, and two VIP tickets to Elton John’s Farewell Tour concert at the Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium.
Deb Woodward; Marilyn Dana/Coldwell Banker Realty; Dr. Nancy Gary; JHL Builders; the Lockton, Mooney and Wilson families; Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck and Ken and Valerie Berke are among the evening’s sponsors.
The deadline to purchase tickets, which range from $200 to $500 each, is April 8. To do this, visit denveracademy.org/gala2022.
