The ballroom at Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center looked regal when Cancer League of Colorado presented its Hope Ball. Rings of light, towering centerpieces and a pink carpet welcomed guests to the annual fundraiser.
Randy and Kori White were honored for their exceptional and generous contributions to the organization. A huge silent auction and live auction with unusual experiences called by Gary Corbett complemented the dinner and the dancing to Jerry Barnett’s orchestra.
Five women whose families were affected by cancer founded Cancer League of Colorado in 1969. Since then, the 100-percent volunteer 501(c)3 organization membership has grown to approximately 400 and has raised and awarded more than $15 million for cancer research , that now includes clinical trials, and patient care.
