The revered Sue Miller, a former fashion model and model for humanity, shares “there is no replacement for the human spirit.”
Her vision for a fashion show to bring attention to breast cancer and show the beauty of survivors has garnered the Sue Miller Day of Caring, and now An Evening of Caring has earned a Gold Star-rated nonprofit status. The oldest organization for breast cancer awareness recently kicked off its 2017 events at the home of Arlene Mohler Johnson, who will receive the Sue Miller Survivor Award Friday, March 2, at An Evening of Caring at the Grand Hyatt Denver in the Colorado Ballroom.

Via her daughter Leslie Heins, Miller wanted everyone to know “Arlene is receiving this award because there isn’t anything that she doesn’t support. She has maintained a very high profile all these years in Colorado and the region with amazing philanthropic support. She has supported the Day of Caring for many years as well by opening her home to models, sponsoring dinners, and now sponsoring this kickoff. Arlene and her husband Don, who recently passed away, have been such a vital part of this community. Although I didn’t know him well, I know he would be very proud of you for receiving this honor.”
Community volunteer Antoinette Paniagua and Dr. Barb Schwartzberg will each receive a Lifetime of Caring Award.
