PROCEEDS FROM 10th ANNUAL ART FOR LIFE EVENT PROVIDE HOPE, MEALS TO PATIENTS WITH LIFE THREATENING ILLNESSES

Denver, CO -- Over 400 art enthusiasts gathered for an evening of fine art, hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, wine, and good company at Project Angel Heart’s tenth annual Art for Life at Artwork Network in Denver. This year’s event highlighted more than 100 local and internationally recognized artists who donated their work to a silent auction benefiting Project Angel Heart. This year, artwork from students at the Denver School of the Arts and Art Students League of Denver was also featured.

 The event raised nearly $70,000 for Project Angel Heart.

 “We are so pleased with the turnout at Art for Life this year. The food, the music, the art, and the party where amazing,” said Mindy Davidson, Director of Development for Project Angel Heart. “ The funds raised, will help provide 420,000 meals to clients who depend on us for life-sustaining nutrition.”

On Wednesday, April 13th from 4:30 to 5:30 PM, Project Angel Heart hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at their new facility on 49th and Washington. This was a significant moment for Project Angel Heart as they begin their journey into a larger facility, thus presenting greater possibilities for the future.

The ceremony was successful with the help of guest speaker Governor John Hickenlooper, alongside Mayor Bill Vidal, President of the Board of Directors, Mark Thrun, M.D., Campaign Co-Chair, Lorii Rabinowitz, Executive Director of Project Angel Heart, Erin Pulling and long time volunteer, donor and former client Craig Ball.

After providing 20 years of service to those coping with life-threatening illnesses in the Denver metro and Colorado Springs communities, Project Angel Heart was able to break ground on their facility specifically designed to meet the demands of the increasing need in the community, for nutritious meals modified to meet the need of the clients’ medical condition. Upon completion in late 2011, the fully renovated 1948 facility, which sits on over two acres in the Globeville neighborhood, will provide 30,000 square feet of space to eventually quadruple the number of clients receiving meals weekly from Project Angel Heart.
