The festive Hope Springs Eternal Luncheon, an annual benefit for Seeds of Hope Charitable Trust, was held April 20 at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center. Emcees were Bill Hanzlik, former NBA player and coach and current TV personality, and Jim Benemann, CBS4 News anchor.
Seeds of Hope provides tuition assistance to students attending Catholic schools in inner-city Denver, and grants to the schools for programs and technology.
“Our kids are safe in school and our kids are safe on outside playgrounds—they are loved,” Executive Director Maribeth Hanzlik told attendees. “Because of you, our faithful supporters, more students will reap the benefits of a Catholic education. From the bottom of our hearts, thanks for helping make this dream a reality.”
Tom Hamilton, principal of Assumption School in Denver, delivered the keynote address. Musical entertainment was provided by the choir of Sts. Peter and Paul School in Wheat Ridge.
Seeds of Hope’s annual Party, Peeps & Poker benefit is set for 5:30 p.m. June 1 at the PPA Event Center, 2105 Decatur St. in Denver. Visit www.partypeepsandpoker.org for more information.
