Fashions from some of the 14 local arc Thrift Stores were on the backs of committee volunteers who worked on the arc Brn to Be Me! fundraiser that drew 550 people to the Hyatt DTC.

“Dance Like Nobody’s Watching” was its theme and the focus was on arc employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities, raising funds for advocacy and services that help enhance their lives and the lives of their families.

Bringing wholehearted respect to this population has grown, as America itself becomes more inclusive, removing stigma and fostering research and more opportunity for a full life.

Emma Sanchez, Aaron Welbert and Beth Goymerac were honorees.

Cydney and Tom Marsh chaired this benefit with support from ticket chairs, Louise Richardson and ARC Community Relations Director, Frances Owens. This was a truly team effort. arc Thrift Stores is led by Lloyd Lewis, president and CEO, and he also headed the corporate effort.

The runway fashion show from arc stores was creative and amazing, and the attitudes of these models was pure joy to watch from the sidelines.

Local TV anchor TaRhonda Thomas was emcee. She was clearly enjoying the silent auction hour before walking the runway with one of the models. The fashion show itself was chaired by Jamie Angelich who seems to be everywhere this year, collecting honor after honor, proof of her dedication to the nonprofit community.

Also on the committee were Kay Ray, Maggie Scivicque, Nancy Hopper, Kathy McAdoo, Gail Johnson, Nancy Thompson, Patti Dennis, Lee Bowen, Pegie Frazier and others.

Nearly 200 of arc Thrift Stores’ 1,400 employees have a disability and the agency helps them find housing, jobs, medical assistance and services. There are 12 arc chapters. Annually, arc diverts more than 70 million pounds of goods from Colorado landfills and weekly they “repurpose” an average of 202,000 pounds of cloth alone.

A large part of the silent auction featured furniture and accessories, from rocking chairs to picture frames, accent pillows and brightly painted desks.

The one factor that really speaks to the health of a nonprofit guild is Dracula-like, drawing fresh blood to infuse the guild with new energy that can invigorate a loyal army to its mission.

The Volunteers of America got just that at the Polo Club home of 25-year supporter, Barbara Grogan, with its invitation urging guests to bring items needed for their Brandon Center that houses homeless women. Theodora House was the VOA’s daytime shelter, now absorbed into Brandon. This one-focus concept allows the agency to provide more long-time mental health services to its homeless clients for more than 90 days, giving them the emotional strength to move on from chronic homelessness to a brighter future. The one facility now has space for 60 women at a time, women who in some cases, were too mentally ill to benefit from short-term help.

“The face of homelessness is women,” VOA Colorado Branch President and CEO, Rev. Dianna Kunz, told brunch guests, but the homeless faces we most often see are of men.

Yes, they do need the help but so do women. Locally, the VOA is dealing with homeless female veterans and domestic violence victims at Brandon Center. On its very invitation to the brunch they asked for towels, toothbrushes, and other ladies’ notions and because these homeless women often come with their small children, diapers were also on the list.

Barbara Goettelman is staying on as guild president, leading a cadre, including Carolyn Hayes, Marilyn McCroskey, Stana Herbolich, Carol Haycock and Mary Beth Heller.

Western Fantasy, Oct. 18, is the biggest annual local VOA benefit, being followed by Service with Style, a fashion luncheon honoring Mariel dress shop owner, Denise Snyder. That luncheon is Nov. 14 at the Grand Hyatt Pinnacle Room.

A packed audience at the Arapahoe House Luncheon heard HLN TV’s “Dr. Drew On Call” anchor and addiction specialist say that Colorado’s cannabis (marijuana) law makes him sad. He said that the younger people who get addicted, the stronger it is and withdrawal takes weeks or more.

Dr. Drew, as he’s known, is actually Dr. Drew Pinsky and his Loveline syndicated radio talk show has been on the air for more than 25 years.

This was the doctor’s second appearance at the luncheon, having been the keynote speaker at the inaugural one, five years ago.

“Hats off to supporters,” he said, noting that addiction is “an interpersonal disease and it requires interpersonal treatment. This kills people all the time.” Drugs are a brain addiction,” he added and that “addiction is a genetic disease, a biological process. One trait is resistance to alcohol.” The gene is called “cheap date” by researchers who are working with flies and even they can have this gene. In humans what can set it off is childhood trauma most often and also contributing to the problem are sexual abuse and low self-esteem.

One example was that of a depressed patient who had a gun in his mouth but “couldn’t leave Vicodin behind” and he, of course, thus lived to tell Pinsky about it. There are also environmental causes and computer games can also be addictive.

Taking audience questions, one person asked, “What do you think of a woman leaving an alcoholic husband and father?”

“The best gift you can give him is to leave him,” Drew replied.

Dr. Drew noted as well the huge amount of legally prescribed painkillers and sleeping drugs like Ambien that this country consumes. He says abstinence is the only treatment.

The Anschutz Foundation offered to match donations from the luncheon dollar for dollar for $50,000 and out came the checkbooks.

Adrienne Ruston Fitzgibbons and Jack Fitzgibbons chaired this luncheon, being longtime Arapahoe House supporters. Kathy Crapo, Patti Robinson, Charlie McNeil and Quinn Washington were on their committee.

Arapahoe House President and CEO Art Schut and an excellent video noted that the ER is not the best place for addicts and police aren’t trained to work with them. But Arapahoe House teaches addicts anger management and life skills and this is no quick process.

“The staff is here to hold your hand,” Schut said.

This hand holding is cost effective but about 80 percent or even more of their patients have no health insurance, thus the need to pass the hat, so to speak.

Among the luncheon VIPs were Judy Chiodo, Helen and Warren Hanks, Dick and Jeanne Saunders, Laura Romero, Sarah Treadway, Denise Snyder, Brandon and Michelle Mencini, Jordanna Gibson, Clayton and Christine Powers, Rep. Nancy Todd and Terry Todd, Arlene and Don Johnson, Brad Levin, Clayton and Christine Powers, and Sheryl Blythe.

Arapahoe House opened in 1975, offering substance abuse treatment and mental health services and has 13 locations and offers 20 specialized services. Reach them at www.arapahoehouse.org.

WDA-LOGOOver the past 12 years, local nonprofit organization, the Women’s Development Association, has been working alongside a non-governmental organization in the Lahore region of Pakistan to provide life saving literacy, education and vocational training to impoverished women and children.

WDA is partnering with three local boutiques – Barbara & Company, Heloise and Ted’s Clothiers for “Fashion Passion IV, a Luncheon and Fashion Show”, on Tuesday, Oct. 7.

Open to the public, this charity event will begin at 10 a.m. at Pinehurst Country Club. Proceeds benefit women and children in Pakistan. Ticket prices are $45 per person, or $75 for VIP Runway Seating. A portion of the ticket is tax-deductible and includes the luncheon, fashion show, and incredible holiday hoopla bazaar.

Honorary Chair Mary Louise Lee will kick off the event with a performance. Special guests include Scottie Taylor Iverson, Fashion & Lifestyle Editor for The Villager and owner of Swan Taylor Denver Public Relations, as well as CWDA Program Director Josna Azim from Pakistan.

Illiteracy prevents the social, economic and political development of nations. In Pakistan, more than 100 million people are illiterate, living in conditions of grinding poverty and squalor. WDA, in partnership with the Christian Women’s Development Association in Pakistan, is responding to this need.

The major objective for WDA and CWDA is to improve the socioeconomic and health conditions of women and children in Lahore, Pakistan. This is achieved through Life Impact classes, which provides literacy, mathematics, health awareness, women’s rights and vocational training. Approximately, 4,800 women have graduated from first and second year Life Impact Classes, vocational and computer sessions. One hundred and fifty children are continuing in classes right now in six different schools without walls.

More About Women’s Development Association The Women’s Development Association is a nongovernmental 501(c)3 organization based in Greenwood Village. WDA began working in Pakistan in 2000 and has educated more than 4,800 + women and children to date.

This program is on-going and produces marked improvement in approximately 400 women and 150 children per year.

For more information on Fashion Passion IV, contact Valerie Harding at 303-759-5596 or email the WDA at wmndvlmtso@gmail.com.

Thank you Coffman for helping VA

As a concerned World War II veteran, I’m proud of Congressman Mike Coffman, and I admire the work he is doing to get this VA Hospital mess straightened out. This summer, I kept reading about Mike taking the VA to task over this secret wait list business. Now I hear (or read) that he led the way on legislation that will finally get the VA Hospital in Aurora off the ground and completed. This is going to have a huge impact on the Vets in our region. This state of the art facility is going to help Vets get the treatment they need faster and better.

I thank you for the factual news articles
