The nonprofit Civic Center Conservancy will celebrate the post-renovation, grand re-opening of the McNichols Civic Center Building at the fourth-annual Civic Center Gala on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. Civic Center Gala attendees will be the first to experience the new-and-improved historic Carnegie Library in Civic Center Park's northwest corner; it has been closed since September 2015 for exterior and interior bond-funded renovations.
For the past 11+ years, the Civic Center Conservancy has worked to realize the vision Denver’s leaders had for Civic Center Park a century ago - as a thriving urban oasis that would inspire civic pride, economic prosperity and cultural vitality. After decades of challenges -- infrastructure improvements, expanded safety and maintenance operations, new public programs and events are breathing new life into this nearly 100-year old landmark, but we need your support to ensure Civic Center continues to thrive.
Co-chaired by Mardi and Brown Cannon and Ann Corrigan and Kent Rice, proceeds from the Civic Center Gala support the Conservancy’s free community programs aimed at revitalizing Civic Center Park - elevating and sustaining this National Historic Landmark as a vibrant and iconic cultural hub. To date, 2016 Civic Center Gala sponsors include Suncor and East West Partners.
While still under formation, the 2016 Civic Center Gala Host Committee currently includes Elaine and Richard Asarch, M.D.; Donna and Rex Carpenter; Patty Shaw Castilian and Chris Castilian; Liane and Bob Clasen; Yvette and Chris Frampton; Arlene and Barry Hirschfeld; Dennis Humphries; Kelly and Bruce James; Lindy Eichenbaum Lent and Jason Lent; Stacie Loucks and Marcus Pachner; Evi and Evan Makovsky; Erin and Matt Neren; Susan and Howard Noble; Vicki and Harry Sterling.
