Serving Up Hope 2020

Plan to participate in the virtual
29th Annual Serving Up Hope (SUH)
sponsored by the Meetings Industry Council of Colorado benefiting The Food Bank of the Rockies

2020 Serving Up Hope
Virtual Event
November 19th
11:30am – 12:30pm

The Details: 

While this year’s event won’t include the delicious and bustling food stations from our favorite caterers and restaurants alike, it will be an opportunity to connect, collaborate, and find inspiration.  Join the Meetings Industry Council of Colorado for an inspiring virtual program spotlighting the incredible work of the Food Bank of the Rockies!

Featuring musical entertainment brought to us by

*Event Program Available Soon!

Why:  

It’s no secret that the event industry has been hit hard in the wake of COVID-19.  It should be no surprise that the Food Bank of the Rockies needs have increased exponentially as well.  Last year SUH raised $34,500 to support the Food Bank of the Rockies, which equates to 138,000 meals.  We recognize that this year does not look the same as less and company and organization expenditures and personal budgets are needing to be less this year, with that our goal this year is to donate 100,000 meals! Thank you for helping us get there!

Tickets:

While our hope is that the MIC community shows up as we have in the past and we raise nearly $30,000 once again, we recognize this year is pivotal, and we know many of us are not in the place to support at the same level as we have in the past. Therefore we are offering two opportunities to receive an invitation to the Virtual Event.

  1. A donation of any amount ($1 to $100,000) to the Food Bank of the Rockies through the Serving Up Hope donation link below, will serve as your ticket to the virtual event.
    *must donate through the MIC donation link.
  2. Volunteer for the Food Bank of the Rockies at any one of our MIC Volunteer Days (see below) *must register to volunteer through the MIC registration link.

We look forward to virtually seeing you November 19, 2020, beginning at 11:30am!

About Serving Up Hope

The Serving Up Hope (SUH) Luncheon began in 1994 as Network for the Needy. It started when hospitality organizations decided to work together toward the common goal of ending hunger in our community. Almost everything is donated and 100% of the proceeds benefit Food Bank of the Rockies and its Denver’s Table program. At last year’s SUH luncheon MIC of Colorado donated over $24,000 and over 14,000 meals to the Food Bank of the Rockies.
