Go Gangster for Charity

Calling all dames and sirs: AdvocacyDenver not-so-secretly invites you to Speakeasy, its third annual 1920s-era themed fundraiser. Patrons are encouraged to dress up like flappers and gangsters, throw down on faux gambling tables and dance to some old-timey music from Doc Brown's Blues Band. There will also be a silent auction with spa gift certificates, mountain lodging and more up for bid. Food and spirits will be provided by Dazzle Restaurant and Lounge and are included in the ticket price.

"Though we have a good amount of support from the community, we're hoping to diversify our funding," says AdvocacyDenver development director Jennie Venable. The nonprofit (formerly known as ARC) specializes in working alongside parents with disabled children in metro-area schools and in working on adult civil-rights issues in the workplace and beyond.
