THANK YOU FOR HELPING COLORADO’S CHILDREN

In February, we once again organized our annual “Christmas in February” event, aimed at providing a warm holiday experience for underprivileged children.  This year’s event benefitted Realities for Children, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of abused and neglected children in Larimer County.  Thank you very much to all of you who donated gifts, clothing, toys, money and time to this worthy event.

 
THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING

On Saturday, February 27, 2010, we participated in the annual “Bridging the Gap Breakfast” at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.  This event is an opportunity for practicing attorneys to meet current law students for breakfast and discuss their thoughts and experiences in the practice of law.  Thank you very much to those young lawyers who attended and helped make this event once again successful.
