Last Thursday night, City Year Denver hosted an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in celebration of our newly renovated office. We were joined by dozens of community members, national sponsors, friends and family members to participate in the grand unveiling of the workspace and were honored to have a member from City Year’s national board, Denny Post, in attendance. Guests were able to tour the new space and engage in conversation with corps members while enjoying tasty treats generously donated by Sam’s Club!
The night also featured inspirational remarks from Colorado State House Representative Crisanta Duran, Deputy Director of Denver Public Schools Laura Brinkman and City Year Denver’s Executive Director Jeff Park. We received a special Proclamation from Governor Hickenlooper, read by Jamie Van Leeuwen, recognizing City Year’s commitment to educating Denver’s youth and service to the community.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone that attended. Please enjoy some of our highlights from the event in the slideshow below:
