Make an evening of big fun work toward supporting impoverished children in a big way at A Precious Child’s first Carnevale! event from 7 to 11 p.m., Saturday, Feb 25th at the Season’s Bliss Event Center, 665 Flatiron Marketplace Drive in Broomfield.
“We are going to make it a night of revelry in Carnevale style with live jazz, dancing and magic – it truly will be a Carnevale event,” said Taylor Keyes, the business and event manager at A Precious Child, which supplies basic clothing, school needs and used sporting equipment to more than 10,000 Colorado children annually. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization operates a 6,000-square foot warehouse and donation center at 557 Burbank Street, Unit E in Broomfield and is currently funding an expansion of its Boulder donation center at 2775 Valmont Street.
The evening includes music by the Queen City Jazz Band and DJ Ted Chavez, magicians and entertainers from Illuminated Art and Entertainment, decorations by Décor n More, a live auction, drinks, hors d’oeuvres, mingling and dancing in a cocktail-attired or masqueraded setting. Tickets are on sale for $50 per person. To register or to find out more information go to www.preciouschildcarnevale.com, or call 303-466-4272.
This great opportunity for stepping out is also a great opportunity for A Precious Child to step out into the community, as well, Keyes said. The festive Carnevale theme funding assistance for less-advantaged children is somewhat appropriate, she said, given that it is a celebration during which many Catholic cultures make merry before the weeks of Lenten fasting and penitence in preparation for Easter.
“We’ve never had a fundraiser that was this intricate in planning and funding, so we’re really hoping for a huge turnout,” Keyes said.
A Precious Child collaborates with schools, organizations, social services, fire and police departments, churches and shelters to ensure that all children in the State of Colorado have their basic needs met.
