Over 300 guests attended The Hope Lives! 20th Anniversary gala, presented by Columbine Health Systems. With a nod to old Hollywood glamour, this formal evening raised over $150,000 to directly support breast cancer patients in Northern Colorado. Guests enjoyed dancing to big band favorites provided by the Colorado Swing, silent and live auction bidding, and photo booth fun. Champions of Hope recipients, including Margo Karsten, president of Banner Health Western Region; Steve Hardy, general manager of Fort Collins Dodge Chrysler Ram and Fort Collins Jeep; and Michelle Hines of Acupuncture Center of Northern Colorado were honored. A touching fashion show featuring current Hope Lives client ambassadors and a triumphant dance of survivors capped off the evening.
