Guests can purchase "poker chips," with which they can vote for their favorite sliders and sides. Chips range from $5 to $100, and will help raise additional funds for the Denver Health Foundation. There will also be live R&B from Chris Daniels & the Kings.

Tickets cost $100 per person and can only be purchased online.
