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. Special thanks to the 2016 Civic Center Gala sponsors: MDC/Richmond American Homes Foundation, Suncor and East West Partners.
