On October 19, the Inverness Hotel hosted the Third Annual Frosting Event for one of Denver’s notable non-profits: the Junior League of Denver.
Frosting was all about celebrating the works of the Junior League of Denver and, of course, enjoying it with the ladies of Denver (and their spouses). Attendees were free to mingle, network, participate in the activities placed throughout the venue and bid on the silent auction as the program was lightly structured.
Throughout the night, everyone was entertained by a two-man acoustic band playing covers of Bob Dylan, Jason Mraz and other big names. Cuisine was served in the fashion of hors d’oeuvres where there was a variety of choices, which included chicken empanada, vegetarian potsticker, steamed asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon, chicken tandoori, cheese platters, etc. A drink was especially created for the event which was named The Journey to signify the journey of the Junior League of Denver over the past year.
One of the highlights of the event was the Tahitian Pearl giveaway valued at $2,500. During the toasting ceremony, everyone was given a glass of champagne with a pearl placed in the glass. If the pearl sunk to the bottom then it could be the real deal, but you must have it checked out by the specialist at hand. It was a very creative concept and in fact, it seemed to stir up quite a bit of excitement among the crowd.
Although the Tahitian Pearl was the talk of the town, other generous donations provided just as much excitement. The silent auction had a number of enticing deals which included a getaway to Kauai, his and her luggage sets, jewelry and beer tours.
Just a few feet away was a a game where everyone had a chance of receiving a gem or diamond – you just had to dig into a bucket of sand. For $15, participants used a small sifter to scoop up sand. Once the sand sifted through, a stone would remain and if there was more than one gem in the sifter, then you got to pick your favorite one.
Right by the gems was a photo booth for anyone who wanted to commemorate the event. Trinkets, silly hats, boas and odd sunglasses were on hand if anyone decided to be a little silly. By the end of the night, party favors were handed out commemorating another successful year for the Junior League of Denver.
If you didn’t get a chance to attend this year’s Annual Frosting event, you can still enjoy the Holiday Mart, an exclusive shopping experience with unique local vendors, which is also part of the fundraiser event.
