The aptly named chairs for the Little Black Dress affair
The "little black dress" is a perennial favorite - always in style. And by "always", I mean even nights when the temperature doesn't crack 20 degrees.
Such a night was Thursday night, the 30th of November. But the loyal supporters of the Colorado ANGELS, and the Inner City Health Center braved the cold temperatures to showcase everything black from demure to downright sexy.
The Colorado ANGELS is a fundraising guild founded in 2002 by the late Florence Ruston and Scottie Iverson. They were in full force on Thursday. They managed to snag famed designer Eleny. Eleny has been designing evening dresses for the past 35 years. She had been a strictly retail operation at Fifth Avenue at 56th street, but just recently started a wholesale division. Now, her designs are available in specialty stores and boutiques throughout the country.
The Valley Country Club was decorated for the holidays and in a festive mood. The very dapper Paul Dunne of Inner City Health was there to serve as reminder that while so many have so much, that health is the most precious commodity, particularly at this time of the year.
Inner City Health Center is a private, not-for-profit health care facility providing medical and dental care as well as counseling services to the medically uninsured and low-income individuals and families of metropolitan Denver and beyond. Did you know that they are in an enterprise zone? That means you tax deductible donation gives you a credit on your state income tax.

After seeing this event, I think there needs to be a support group for devotees of the "little black dress."
