You are cordially invited to the fifth annual Public Good Gala.

Offered since 2012, this innovative program helps refugees develop the skills and knowledge needed to obtain jobs in the food service industry.

The evening's menu will be under the direction of featured guest chef Simon Purvis, Executive Chef of Four Seasons Hotel Denver.
