Hello CIPA EVVY™ Finalists!

First, congratulations on making it this far in the competition.  Some of the category were literally hundredths of a point different.

I am personally inviting you to attend the 21st annual CIPA EVVY™ banquet. Ticket sales close on Wednesday, August 19, so we can get a head count to the caterers.

All finalists will receive an award—so if you’re named, you are going to be going to the stage at some point in the evening!

The menu this year is a wonderful island theme, fresh summer repast. If you’re vegetarian, no worries! Part of the menu is black beans and rice with a really fabulous zucchini casserole! If you’re restricted to gluten free (like I am), then you’ll be able to eat all but the dinner rolls. Serendipity is one of Denver’s premier catering companies and was voted Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce Green Business of the year. You can view the menu—and the finalists—here:

The event is being held at the Space Gallery, 4th and Santa Fe. There is plenty of street parking, and it is a lovely venue. There is an outside patio. The inside is spacious and cool. Here’s a link so you can see what it looks like:

Ticket price: $60 per person. Premium beer and wine is complementary as are non alcoholic drinks.
