"This event started as a small party for my friends, but I thought it would be fun to donate our proceeds to a charity," commented event organizer Jim Guttau. "I hope this event will be an annual event and grow each year."
Milagro Taco Bar, a new restaurant at 1700 Vine in Denver, donated 100% of the evening's proceeds to the foundation. Attendees also participated in a silent auction which featured Beijo handbags and massage gift certificates.
Dani's Foundation was formed in memory of Dani Stell who lost her battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer in April of 1999. Her mother, Michele, founded the organization to raise money for teen cancer research.
