Since floods devastated parts of Colorado two months ago, there have been an abundance of fundraisers helping those who lost so much -- everyone from farmers to musicians. Tonight the Business Marketing Association Colorado will dedicate its annual B2BSeen event to raising funds for flood relief. The action starts at 6 p.m. at the PPA Event Center, and features mixologists Alexandra Geppert (The Hooch Life), Anika Zappe (Star Bar) and Jason Patz (Williams & Graham) competing for prizes throughout the evening that will be donated to HelpColoradoNow.org. And through the competition, guests can bid in a silent auction, snack on hors d'oeuvres and sip on cocktails, and enjoy music by Parkside Violin Infused Rock.
Tickets for B2BSeen are $59 for BMA members, $75 for non-BMA members and $80 at the door; purchase them online or call 303-607-9957.
The second annual Chef & Brew will be at the EXDO Event Center from 7-10 p.m. tonight, with fifteen local chefs and brewers in a cutthroat competition to create the ultimate food and beer pairing. Guests will be able to sample both beer and wine in a tasting format: two-ounce pours paired with each appetizer.
Tickets (if any are left) are $49 in advance, $59 at the door; VIP tickets are $59 in advance; $69 at the door. Find out if any are left here. A portion of the sales will go to Project Angel Heart, which delivers free meals to those coping with life-threatening illnesses.
