A 100-year anniversary is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so the supporters and workers of the American Red Cross of Colorado wanted to commemorate this important milestone with a once-in-a-lifetime event.

saved lives during both the Black Forest Fire and the Colorado Floods.
The awards ceremony concluded with a successful paddle raiser led by Reggie Rivers. The extremely generous audience pledged more than $100,000 in cash donations to support the mission of the Red Cross in Colorado – which was increased by an additional $50,000 matching donation from DCP Midstream.
