We have the privilege and honor of supporting those who have served our country so tirelessly and with such dedication at the Veteran's Passport 2 Hope Gala. We provided a completely full service planning experience for the group of volunteers and board members from venue selections, vendors, design, logistics to auction solicitation & management plus more. The evening featured a traditional honor program with Color Guard, Big Pipers, National Anthem, and Missing Man table. We gave out awards to those who have served veterans in our community and across the country. The night was filled with inspiring stories including that of the Executive Director who was Skyped in after receiving his 78th surgery from his service.

The 4th annual “2-Wheel Fantasy Poker Run and More” is a charity benefit motorcycle ride unlike any other. It starts at one of Denver’s favorite motorcycle restaurant and bar, Platte River Bar and Grill. What makes this ride unique, one you’ll always remember, and a ride sure to make you know you are making a difference is that some of the stops for your cards are elder care facilities. When the bikers roar up, the elders’ faces light up. Some of the elders take a spin around the parking lot. It’s hard to say who has more fun at this event---the bikers or the elders.
There will be free snacks and beverages provided all along the way, and that afternoon, at the last stop of the day, there will be a lot of free food, music, prizes, poker hand awards, and fun. Yes, the ride will also include some twists and turns through the scenic foothills.
For 20 years, Bessie’s Hope has been enhancing the lives of nursing home/assisted living elders and transforming the lives of “at-risk” youth of all ages. Because of this experience with the elders, many of the at-risk teens leave their ruts of violence and hopelessness and turn toward a brighter future as responsible, compassionate adults.
