The Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel hosts many large conferences and conventions organized by companies with headquarters out of state, but we’re also an ideal venue for smaller, more intimate meetings and events held by many local corporations here in in the Denver metro area. One of these events is the Apple Awards, the biggest annual fundraiser for the Douglas County Education Foundation (DCEF).

On Feb. 23, more than 200 amazing Douglas County teachers, support staff and administrators representing every school in the district were honored during a gala at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, including seven employees and a corporate sponsor. This is the eighth year for the Apple Awards, which shines the spotlight on outstanding educators throughout the Douglas County School District. In addition to honoring excellence in teaching, the event raises proceeds totaling more than $500,000 for collaborative programs benefiting the classrooms and students in the district.

Approximately 1,000 guests helped the Susan G. Komen for the Cure's Denver Affiliate fight breast cancer by wearing pink outfits and accessories and pledging $420,000 for research and treatment. Way to go! We think EVERY month should be Breast Cancer Awareness Month - let's keep working together to promote awareness, share information and provide greater access to services.
