It’s the only organization of its kind in Colorado!
Anchor Center was founded in 1982 by a librarian from the Colorado Library for the Blind, who saw a need for services for blind and visually-impaired children, and the local Delta Gamma Alumnae Chapter stepped up to support it.
The first group of children included four preschool students and six homebound infants. Today, Anchor Center serves more than 200 children and their families each year. Heather Cameron is executive director.
Anchor Center is Delta Gamma’s local philanthropy and dozens of members of the sorority came out in support.
More than 95 percent of the organization’s funding comes from contributions and grants. Money raised at the annual Sunset in the Country, which began as a small picnic, is critical to helping the children served at Anchor Center reach their highest potential.
This year, Louisa and Robert Jornayvaz opened their J-5 Equestrian Center (named for five members of the Jornayvaz family) for the popular event. Dozens of Delta Gammas supported the evening including Hero Sponsor Sage Scheer, co-auctioneer Dayle Cedars, Jean Galloway and Elizabeth Hamilton. Chocolate Chai Dome Cakes complemented the dinner menu and Moment’s Notice with Jerry Barnett entertained.
