Brown Palace Hotel General Manager Steve Haley presents a check to Denver Post Publisher Mac Tully for the newspaper’s Season Of Sharing.
Marking the 125th anniversary of the Brown Palace, this year’s traditional Champagne Cascade benefited 50 nonprofits in the Denver Post-sponsored Season To Share. The hotel was filled to capacity—every balcony standing room only. With 6,000 glasses stacked over two stories high, it was not hard to get one when the bottles were sabered open. As is the annual tradition, the holiday chandelier was hung in the grand lobby, replete with more than 250,000 crystal beads and 60,000-plus LED lights. Photos by Stefan Krusze
