Fall is in the air, and that can only mean one thing; the holiday season is just around the corner. The Alexander Foundation will be kicking off the season in grand style by hosting our second annual “Fall Fiesta; Tapas and Tequila” fundraising event. This year’s event is being held on Friday, November 15th 2013 from 6:00pm until 9:00pm in Miller Hall, located inside the historic First Baptist Church of Denver, 1373 Grant Street, Denver 80203.

Built in 1938, First Baptist Church of Denver was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. The facility has played host to such luminaries as the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, who spoke at the church on April 16, 1962 during a visit to Denver. Fostering Dr. King's vision of a beloved community is a vision of the church and its current pastor, Reverend Brian Henderson; a philosophy that The Alexander Foundation is pleased to be a part of. The foundation selected this unique venue for the same reason; to enhance and encourage a broader sense of community across all lines.

Guests will enjoy appetizers and refreshments courtesy of Plaza Catering and Coyote Gold Margaritas. It will also feature an exhibition of Capoeira; the Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics. Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a “Balloon Pop.” For $20, guests can purchase a balloon, pop it, and receive the gift noted inside; some valued at over $100. Other event partners include DesignWorks by Dave and Mike, and Babylon Floral.

The mission of The Alexander Foundation is to provide financial assistance to the LGBT community of Colorado. Since 1981, The Alexander Foundation has proudly hosted events like “Tapas and Tequila,” which generate essential revenue to fund the foundations efforts of providing financial assistance for those seeking higher education, those in financial need due to temporary life challenges, and those who suffer from chronic or life-threatening illnesses.
