Speak up for the homeless on the Denver Voice silent auction site
Although Albus Brooks crafted the proposed anti-urban camping ordinance, he supports help for the homeless. In fact, Brooks gave a shout-out to the Denver Voice in his recent Westword interview. And tomorrow night, Brooks will be on hand at a benefit to raise funds for this organization, a Westword MasterMind winner that, for the past fifteen years, has produced a newspaper that focuses on homeless issues -- and then gives the homeless a chance to earn an income by selling the paper.
Even if you can't attend the fundraiser, you can still help out: An online auction to support the Denver Voice is now open here, and you can bid on everything from art to date packages until 5 p.m. tomorrow.
The Denver Voice Spring Fundraiser runs from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 4, at a private home in Capitol Hill. At 8 p.m., there will be a live auction, with prizes ranging from a football signed by Peyton Manning, to a test drive in a Ferrari and a private wine tasting for sixteen of your friends. Tickets for the event are $75 for an individual, $125 for a couple; get more details and RSVP here.
