Thanks to all of our sponsors, donors and attendees for making our gala event, For the Love of Children Near and Far such a tremendous success. It was a special evening because of wonderful supporters who care about children. The support of our mission was evidenced in the comments and enthusiasm we received. For that we are grateful. We also appreciated the generous support of our playground through the purchase of “stars” and the bidding on many wonderful products during the silent and live auction. 

Our gala raised over $30,000 for our programs. We are very appreciative to all of our supporters. We would like to also thank our co-host, the Denver Tech Center Rotary Club. We hope to see everyone back next year along with all of you who were unable to attend this year.

Please enjoy the photos taken by our Gold Sponsor, McBoat Photography here. If you would like to get a digital copy of a print without the watermark, please contact us at with the photo number/numbers and we will send it to you.

Also, keep us in mind during day on Tuesday, December 4, 2012. Find the SPD Foundation’s link .
