There will be a single practice on Friday, July 17th in the evening.

In 2014 we debuted the crowd-pleasing Lion Dance Extravaganza, in which area Lion Dance troupes showed off their athleticism, martial arts skills and graceful dance abilities in Gateway To Asia. The Extravaganza returns for 2015.

If you’re in a Lion Dance troupe and would like to compete for the title of crowd favorite, you can submit your application here as a performer — choose the Gateway To Asia stage and tell us all about your troupe.

It’s that time of year again!

Colorado’s largest one-day online giving event, Colorado Gives Day, presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, is coming up and we want your support.

On Tuesday, December 9, thousands of donors will come together to support Colorado nonprofits like ours. Last year, a record-breaking $20.9 million was distributed to Colorado nonprofits.

About Colorado Gives Day

Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round website featuring nearly 1,500 nonprofits. ColoradoGives.org encourages charitable giving by providing comprehensive, objective and up-to-date information about Colorado nonprofits and an easy way to support them online.

Why December 9?

Because thanks to the Community First Foundation and First Bank, Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day receives a portion of the Incentive Fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated. It’s easy, quick and secure!

Best of all, you can pre-schedule your donation TODAY for December 9!
