The nonprofit Civic Center Conservancy is dedicated to restoring, enhancing and activating downtown Denver’s historic Civic Center Park – the 12-acre historic urban oasis surrounded by the Colorado State Capitol, Denver Public Library, Denver Art Museum, Denver City and County Building and downtown Denver commercial business district.
Known for its annual Independence Eve Celebration, Civic Center EATS Outdoor Café and Bike-in Movie Series as well as its advocacy and fundraising for all things Civic Center Park, the Conservancy will host its second-annual Civic Center Gala on Saturday, February 8, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. in the historic McNichols Civic Center Building (144 W. Colfax) - the newly-renovated historic Carnegie Library in Civic Center Park’s northwest corner.
Proceeds from the Civic Center Gala support the Conservancy’s free community programs aimed at revitalizing Civic Center Park - elevating and sustaining this newly-designated National Historic Landmark as a vibrant and iconic cultural hub.
Honorary co-chairs will be Governor John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock. The 2014 Civic Center Gala will be co-chaired by Susan and Howard Noble and Patty Shaw Castilian and Chris Castilian.
The event theme will be “A Park for All People” and will feature a cocktail reception, seated dinner, a live auction, and live entertainment.
