I get the honor of hosting the Simply Red Gala to benefit Team Fort Collins at the Fort Collins Hilton on Friday, February 7th.  My wife and I have gone the past few years, but they finally asked me to be the emcee.  Dress up in your best red cocktail attire and get ready to dance, dine, and donate from 5:30 PM until 11 PM.

Simply Red benefits Team Fort Collins which helps bring awareness to prevent the abuse and illegal use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs among youth and families.

The evening includes a delicious dinner and cocktails, presentation of the prestigious Lamplighter Award, a silent auction and paddler raiser, and dancing to the music of The Backline.


Tickets are $100 per person! Call (970) 224-9931 for ticket reservations or more details at  There is also a special room rate at the Hilton by calling (970) 482-2626.
