With over 400 individuals being previously featured in Blacktie's "Have You Met?" the 10-year anniversary celebration was especially exceptional. Blacktie founder Kenton Kuhn announced the staggering $62,000,000 in funds helped raised through non-profit partner’s efforts and the 10-year milestone.
Familiar faces including Edie Marks, Lois Paul, BJ Dyer, Guenther Vogt, and Jill DiPasquale all watched as Georgia Imhoff Award recipient Beth Klein was recognized for the tremendous work she does for the prohibiting of human trafficking. Named among 50 women in the world you would want “on your side,” including such individuals as Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton, Klein is making a difference in the world through her cause.
The “super lawyer” and former member of the Kempe Foundation was all smiles when accepting her award from previous recipient Ryta Sondergard, speakers Stacy Ohlsson and Walt Imhoff, as well as the Blacktie team.
The event was held at the newly opened Celebrity Lanes at Parker Road and Arapahoe Road, offering not just bowling but state of the art tv screens, great food and beverage and plenty of party space.
