The Masquerade Ball and elaborately decorated masks are back in fashion! GIVE Denver held the 2nd Annual GIVE Denver Masquerade Ball at the Eastside Human Service building on  Saturday, October 13th. Guests truly got into the fun and spirit of the ball, dressed up in their finest attire and adorned themselves with fabulous masks of all kinds. 

This festive event was all about a night with friends having a great time while raising much needed funds to help the undeserved communities of Denver. Providing guests with plenty of food fit for a party was The Food Guy. A silent auction was filled with great gifts and packages for everyone... and hand decorated masks from the children Give Denver serves, accompanied each package as a special bonus. Music filled the building thorough out the evening with the sounds of Jakarta. The crowd obviously loved the band, with special guest singer first lady Mary Louise Lee, wife of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, as the dance floor was always filled with masked dancers

GIVE Denver, a human services organization, is designed to provide resources and services to Denver's underserved community through donations and with the help of volunteers. They help foster children, the homeless, veterans, at-risk seniors, and families. Their mission is to help those who are underserved by: 

  • Connecting underprivileged families, referred by DHS staff, to neighborhood resources when they are denied government assistance, but still need help. Neighborhood resources include food banks, utility assistance, rental assistance and other lifeline resources;
  • Providing basic necessity items to foster or kinship families that care for children, on a moment’s notice or to families in crisis. Those supplies might include diapers and formula or shampoo, soap and other hygiene products;
  • Running annual giving campaigns such as the Spring Gift Basket, School Supply, and Holiday Drives, which benefit foster children, homeless people, and other at-risk children and adults served by DHS.
