"We'll have some young people there who will talk about how their lives have been changed by PeaceJam," Engle says, referring to the 24 students flying in from Florida, "and some adults who've been inspired by PeaceJam." Adults like former state senator Polly Baca and Mary Lou Makepeace, executive director of the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado, who will both be honored with the PeaceJam Heroes award.
The luncheon, at the Seawell Ballroom in the Denver Performing Arts Complex, starts at noon; tickets start at $100. For more information, go to www.peacejam.org or call 303-455-2099.
