Two years later, having involved nearly 600 participants, Kirkland has dreams of reaching even more, which is why hes hosting tonights Six Pack Sports Formal, a coat-and-tie, open-bar fundraising party with live music, local artists, and a silent auction featuring photography, spa treatments, Broncos tickets and more. Hes also lined up a couple of guest speakers, including a Six Pack veteran with no friends in Colorado who signed up for a team and now has 200 or more friends a real good support and social network.
Hes going to talk about what Six Pack has done for him and how it has supported him, says Kirkland.
