Sampling for Hope

Our Signature Food & Beverage Event

Register today for Sampling For Hope… now in an exciting virtual format!

Our online program will stream live on Thursday, June 10 at 5:30 p.m. Hosted by Kylie Bearse and Steve Staeger from 9News, the presentation will feature entertainment, a video compilation of our restaurant partners and a survivor speaker sharing her inspiring story.

All proceeds from this event will support SafeHouse Denver’s Extended Stay Program, a six-unit apartment complex for survivors and their children who are no longer in immediate crisis but need additional time to secure long-term housing. These fully-furnished apartments provide families with safety, privacy and independence as they work on their self-identified goals and continue to heal from their trauma.

The livestream is free to attend, but you also have the option to add an exclusive virtual cooking demonstration with Michael Poompan, Executive Chef at the Ritz-Carlton in Denver! This $30 donation will include the list of ingredients as well as a video link for the demo to be sent after the event.

What About The Food?

We’re glad you asked! During the week leading up to the event, June 7-10, we will have featured promotions with local restaurant partners. 10% from each order will be donated to SafeHouse Denver!

You can dine in safely or get your food to-go, but please order directly from the restaurants (not third-party delivery services) to be part of their donations.
