Gatsby Theme Promises a Roaring Party for 2014 Beaux Arts Ball on Feb. 22

DECEMBER 22, 2013

Annual Gala Benefits National Jewish Health, Nation’s Leading Respiratory Hospital
National Jewish Health will create a glamorous event on Feb. 22, 2014, that would be the envy of the fictional, epic party-thrower Jay Gatsby himself. The Beaux Arts Ball “Gatsby” will be a nod to the opulent Roaring ’20s as portrayed in the 2013 cinematic adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel “The Great Gatsby.”

Grand Marshals Kathy and Ted Brown, Robin and Cole Finegan, Tim Gill and Scott Miller, and Debbie and Don Silversmith will be honored at the gala, held at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center. Guests will revel in the entertainment, cuisine and décor at this party for the ages.

The Beaux Arts Ball is the largest fundraising event held in Denver to benefit National Jewish Health, the nation’s leading respiratory hospital. Each year the black-tie gala draws more than 1,200 people to celebrate and support the institution. Since the event began as the Denver Dinner in 1970, it has raised millions of dollars to benefit patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune and related diseases and support groundbreaking research conducted at National Jewish Health.

Tickets to attend 2014 Beaux Arts Ball begin at $500 per person, with table sponsorships starting at $5,000. To attend or for more information about the event, contact Clem Connolly at 303.728.6546 or by email at
