The 1907 Ambassador Circle, Craig Hospital’s official Young Professionals group, will celebrate its Second Annual Birthday Bash and Grant Announcement on May 13, 2014.
The 1907 Ambassador Circle is named for the year Frank Craig founded the tuberculosis tent colony that would later become the nationally-renowned rehabilitation center for individuals with spinal cord and brain injuries.
Members of the circle generally range in age from their early twenties to their late forties. Members join the group by making a $200 minimum contribution to the 1907 Ambassador Circle Grant Fund.
Members also engage in fundraising efforts and networking events to build the fund. The 1907 Ambassador Circle provides members with the opportunity to play a hands-on role in building the future of Craig Hospital.
In the spring of each year, Craig Hospital departments submit proposals to the 1907 Ambassador Circle for various projects. Members then review the proposals and collectively choose which project to fund. The winner will be announced at the May 13 event.
The event will be hosted at Mangia Bevi at Palazzo Verdi, 6363 S. Fiddlers Green Circle in Greenwood Village. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7:30 p.m.
Peter Burns, host of the Press Box Show on Mile High Sports, will serve as emcee. A silent auction will feature bicycle helmets decorated by Craig grads, patients and staff.
A limited amount of specially priced tickets in the amount of $19.07 are available for purchase through April 18. Regular priced tickets will be $40 after April 18. All tickets include appetizers, and desserts along with complimentary champagne for toasting the awardees. A cash bar will be available. Every attendee will have a chance to win prizes.
