The second annual Celebracion del Corazon (Celebration of the Heart)was a festive fundraising event to support the Community Ministry Food and Clothing banks. For over 40 years Community Ministry has been working to provide basic needs for qualified people in Southwest Denver who are experiencing economic hardships and related problems.
This heartfelt event included a silent auction, dance and dessert bar. The silent auction had creative items such as art museum passes, round trip tickets on the Durango/Silverton railroad and much more. The 2 1/2 hour silent auction was a tremendous success. Anne Trujillo of 7News was the vibrant honorary chairperson and kept the evening fun and engaging.
Community Ministry receives support through Individual donations, supporting church donations, special events such as the Walk, flower sales, church sponsored events, coupon and recycling programs, private or corporate donations and matching funds, grants from Denver Foundation, Colorado Energy Assistance Foundation, Emergency Food and Shelter Program, Season to Share, Schlessman Family Foundation, Anschutz Family Foundation, WalMart and many other foundations.
