Friday, February 3th marked Anchor Center for Blind Children’s signature Valentine’s event, Visions of Love, held at our state-of-the-art learning facility in the Central Park neighborhood of Denver. This year also marked the 13th anniversary of this time-honored event partnering Colorado wineries, local breweries, whiskey tastings and delectable chocolate pairings. It was a wonderful night as we were able to share the magic of Anchor Center’s building and mission!
Over 250 guests and supporters raised over $40,000 for Anchor Center. Hosted by Delta Gamma Alumnae Chapter of Denver, Visions of Love guests enjoyed tastings from Colorado wineries including: Carboy Winery, Chill Switch, Infinite Monkey Theorem, Mafia Princess, Meridian Prime (South African Wines), and our delicious chocolate was provided by The Chocolate Therapist.
Our VIP Experience this year not only offered beer tastings from Bruz Beers, Ratio Beerworks and three options for sensory cocktails from Meridian Prime, but for the first time we held very popular whiskey tastings generously provided by Mile High Spirits!
Also new this year, a prize drawing to win a one-night stay at Four Seasons Denver was a popular ticket item and our winner, Kevin Vasquez, will be able to enjoy the Presidential Suite valued at $16,000 per night!
Guests also enjoyed exploring Anchor Center’s award-winning teaching center, where staff acted as building docents providing tours and educating guests on the remarkable mission of Anchor Center.
