Good News Friday!

I would like to offer my sincere thanks to everyone involved in last Friday’s Imagine! Foundation Celebration Dinner and Auction. Once again, generous members of our community came out in droves to support Imagine! and our mission of providing individuals with cognitive, physical, and developmental disabilities opportunities to live fulfilling lives in their homes and communities.

More than 360 people packed the Radisson Conference Center in Longmont and bid early (and often) during both a silent auction and a live auction. When we combined the totals of the auction with what we earned from our sponsorship, table, and ticket sales, it turns out we brought in more than $212,000 to support some of our most vulnerable citizens! Amazing!

You can read more about the celebration in this article from the Longmont Times Call.

I also encourage you to take a quick look at a list of our many generous sponsors below.

If you weren’t able to attend, I’d like to share with you two videos that were debuted during the evening that exemplify how Imagine! meets its mission, something we are able to do because of the incredible support we enjoy from our friends and neighbors.

First, check out this video of Doug Coker, the 2009 Imagine! Consumer of the Year.

Then, take a look at this video about our SmartHome project – it provides a look into the why and how of this ambitious project, and shares some early success stories. When I see the kind of turnout we had this past Friday, I’m confident there will be many more of these stories to come.
