The Legal Aid Foundation’s 10th annual wine tasting event was attended by nearly 300 people on Oct. 23. Above the Rim Fine Wine, located at 1936 Pennsylvania St., coordinated the spirits. This year’s event was held in the grand ballroom at the Denver Athletic Club. The Foundation thanks everyone who participated in the festivities and contributed to the evening’s success.

Wine and beer tasters enjoyed delightful hors d’oeuvres and live music provided by Standard Issue. The Sliders, an acappella group, entertained guests as they arrived in the downstairs lobby.

Sponsors for this year’s event include Class Action Administration, Clifton Gunderson LLP, Corporate Express, FirstBank, Ford Personnel Inc., HOSTWORKS, Hunter + Geist, Legal Design, Marsh Affinity Group Services, Merrill Corporation, Mountain States Bank, NEXTEL, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Saint Luke’s Lofts, Strategic Staffing Associates Inc. and Wells Fargo.

The silent auction table held over 30 items, offering weekend getaways, sporting and cultural event tickets, classes and gift certificates.

Rob Weil designed the marketing pieces and Bradford Publishing donated printing. Kinkos assisted with copying.

Special thanks go to the sponsors, silent auction donors, entertainers, and everyone who donated their time and energy to make this our premier event. We also want to thank the attendees and law firms that bought tickets to the event. We appreciate the assistance from the bar association staff—from promoting the event in publications to working with us throughout the evening.

We encourage everyone to patronize our sponsors and the businesses that participated in the event. We appreciate their support.
