Starry Nights Gala Videos

Our 25th Anniversary Gala was a storming success. Our sincere thanks to the Denver Botanic Gardens, our special guest speakers Rue Mapp, Jason Ritter and JACF camper Luis Ochoa, and everyone who came out on a beautiful September evening to support our cause and share in the celebrations. Most of all, thank you to the tireless work behind the scenes of the Gala Committee chaired by Bill LaBahn and supported by so many of our amazing volunteers.
