Hifalutin do-gooder hotelier Walter Isenberg (the Oxford et al.) and his wife, Christie, know how to raise cash. They employ a little trick called putting the fun in fundraising. Their charity, Concerts for Kids, kicked off its first flagship event an annual concert in 2004, and since then, theyve raised more than half a million dollars for Denver Public Schools, Childrens Hospital and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Although concerts are the organizations raison dêtre, it hosts a variety of other events throughout the year, such as Celebrity Waiter Fundraisers and Bowl-a-Thons. And the Isenbergs hearts are pure: One hundred percent of the proceeds go to their beneficiaries. Tonights 8 p.m. concert may be their best yet, with Jewel and John Legend headlining at Fiddlers Green, 6350 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard in Greenwood Village. Tickets are $15 for lawn seats, $35 to $75 for reserved seating, and theyre available at any Ticketmaster outlet. For corporate packages and VIP tickets, visit www.concertsforkids.org or call Sally at 303-605-2885.
