Congratulations Eric!

We’d like to send our congratulations to Eric Wallace, who recently was honored by the Longmont Area Chamber of Commerce with the 2010 “Making a Difference” Award.

We can’t think of a more deserving recipient. Not only does Eric serve on the Imagine! Foundation Board of Directors, he also demonstrates Imagine!’s mission in action by providing employment opportunities at Left Hand Brewery to many of the people Imagine! serves. Eric is the President and co-founder of the popular Longmont-based brewery, which has hosted a variety of fundraising events in the past for many great causes.

In addition to serving on the Imagine! Foundation Board, he also serves on the Colorado Shakespeare Festival Advisory Board, and is the President of the Colorado Brewers Guild.

Thanks Eric for all you do for Imagine! and for your community!

Colorado Gives Day Update

Colorado Gives Day on December 8, 2010, a new initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving, resulted in $4,405 in donations to Imagine!, including $820 from Imagine! employees.

A portion of this amount will be matched by Community First Foundation’s Incentive Fund to augment this total.

Thanks to the generosity of our employees, the employee campaign – Transcend $10,000 – is now at nearly $5,000 donated on behalf of Imagine!’s consumers.

Thanks to all who contributed!
