Spirit of Sailing Gala
This year’s Annual Gala will be held at The Denver Athletic Club in downtown Denver on April 20, 2013 beginning at 6:00 PM. We are thrilled to honor Christine DeRose & Jennifer Elmore of The DeRose-Krantz Group of RBC Wealth Management with this year’s Spirit of Sailing Award for their outstanding commitment to sailing in Colorado throughout the years. We welcome back Dave Aguilera with CBS 4 News as our “Master of Ceremony” and local auctioneer Leroy Nitsch.
We are also excited to announce this year we will have TWO Special Guests. First, Nicholas Hayes, author of Saving Sailing – The Story of Choices, Families, Time Commitments, and How We Can Create a Better Future. Hayes is an avid sailor, community supporter and gifted storyteller. Second, Jennifer French, 2012 Paralympics medalist and author of On My Feet Again: My Journey Out of the Wheelchair Using Neurotechnology and US Sailing’s 2012 Yachtswoman of the Year. French is active in the community accessible sailing program, Sailing Alternatives, as well as the national U.S. Sailing, Sailors with Special Needs. We are honored to welcome both of these amazing guests to our event.

The Annual Spirit of Sailing Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year. In 2012, the Gala raised a record breaking amount over $73,000 to support Community Sailing of Colorado and its programs. The entire evening was a wonderful celebration to support junior sailing in Colorado.
