SaddleUp! and Pack Your Bags for the 2014 Denver Suitcase Party, Presented by Tempus Aircraft on August 8th, 2014 at AeroColorado.
This summer, the SaddleUp! Foundation’s popular fundraiser will arrive with a chance to fly away to a resort destination via private jet on the night of the event. SaddleUp! Foundation is a premier Colorado-based equine assisted therapy facility that provides a wide breadth of therapy programs for individuals with special needs, as well as their able-bodied family members.
Presented by title sponsor Tempus Aircraft, this year’s event has grown from years past, and will take place at the newly built AeroColorado, in its beautiful 40,000 square foot private hangar. The SaddleUp! Suitcase Party will be the very first non-profit event to experience and be hosted in the brand new facility.
The annual party is the SaddleUp! Foundation’s signature event and annual fundraiser, where guests vie to win seats on a private jet that departs directly from the party and heads to a resort destination in California’s wine country. Guests are directed to bring a packed suitcase to the soiree, just in case they are the lucky winners of the grand prize getaway. There are two ways to win this adventure for four: through the purchase of a Baggage Claim raffle ticket or as the highest bidder during the live auction. The trip includes limousine service, spa treatments, private tours, wine tastings and more.
During the live auction, bidders will also have the opportunity to win the opportunity to be whisked away via private jet to Telluride, or enjoy a once-in-a lifetime luxury vacation in Belize.
The SaddleUp! Suitcase Party will feature fabulous food from more than ten local restaurants and caterers, libations from Hall Brewing, Brown Foreman and Gallo, live music, special performances and dancing.
Attendees who purchase tickets prior to July 1, 2014 will receive two entries per ticket for the winning raffle. This year’s event is on Friday, August 8th from 6:00p to 10:00p at AeroColorado at Centennial Airport (8082 S. Interport Blvd).
