Mapleton Education Foundation Gala

With the Mayor of Thorton, Erik Hansen.
I was honored to be able to attend and support the Mapleton Education Foundation Gala. This foundation has enabled the schools in this district to offer the children wonderful programs such as the arts program, bus transportation, free lunches for the children and much more.

Rebecca Cavanaugh-Miller and Carol Beckler are city of Thorton council members who are huge supporters of the foundation.

What a surprise to sit next to Carol Beckler who was the director of Mrs. Colorado over 17 years ago! She was Tricia Dampier's (my director) director when she was the reining Mrs. Colorado.

Photographer for "Black Tie Colorado" has been photographing Mrs. Colorado queens for several years around town at Black Tie fund-raisers. I was able to turn the camera on him for a change!

Just before dinner and the live auction.

My date for the night, Raeanne Duca, with the Royal Image Boutique. Raeanne supplied my beautiful dress and jewelry for the event.
