Cocktails for a Cause (CFAC) hosts event in support of A Precious Child
October 19, 2016
Denver — Cocktails for a Cause (CFAC) will be hosting their next event in support of A Precious Child, a local Denver nonprofit, from 5:30 – 9:30 PM on October 19, 2016 at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. A Precious Child is devoted to making a positive impact in the lives of disadvantaged and displaced children and families in Colorado by improving their quality of life. They provide basic essentials to children in need to empower them to succeed in school. Guests are invited to bring the selected items to the charity (http://www.cocktailsforacauseco.org/events/a-precious-child/) and for their donation they are given door prize tickets. A $10 attendance fee is charged for each event, where wine and dinner is served.
CFAC holds events three times per year for different charities needing items to help them provide services to their constituents. Guests bring items from a list provided to them in their invitation along with a $10 entrance fee, which becomes their admission into the event. CFAC provides drinks and dinner along with an opportunity to meet other like-minded philanthropic women. 100% of all items collected at a CFAC event are delivered to the charity that night. The items have an immediate impact for the constituents. A short presentation from the honored charity is a highlight of the evening’s activities along with a featured women-owned business, and an immensely popular silent auction.
Since Cocktails for a Cause was launched in July 2009, the 501 © 3 nonprofit has hosted 25 events and delivered to local charities nearly 450,000 items collected valued at nearly $360,000. Last June’s event for The Rise School of Denver brought in over 99,987 items valued at $10,465. “Over the years, Cocktails for a Cause events have grown into a diverse group of generous women. The guests appreciate donating items and learning about our local community in need. We call what we do “hand-to-hand” giving. All donations will be in the hands of someone locally in need the very next day,” said René Harding, Founder and President, CFAC.
CFAC relies on sponsors to help with funding their events and they are grateful to PCL Construction, Fireplace & Grill Experts, Mobile Office Solutions, Hallmark Home Loans, Shelley Ford-Financial Advisor, First American Title, Fidelity Title, Montgomery, Little and Soran PC, Denver Transit Partners and Lacy’s Chair Cover Rentals. A women-owned business is featured for each event and provides a small gift to all attendees; at A Precious Child event, Serenity’s Way is the woman-owned business sponsor.
In-kind donations of products and services are provided by Applejack Wine & Spirits, Serendipity Catering, Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum, Event Rents, Ruckus Media, BreakThru Bevearge Group, PSI-Production Services International, Parties Extraordinaire, and Moye White LLP.
