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
