The Community Breakfast
CommunityWorks is proud to announce the 2022 Community Breakfast! This high energy, influential morning will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver, Colorado on October 14th starting at 9:00am. The Community Breakfast is known to attract professionals in the Denver Metro area, and throughout the state of Colorado. An exclusive opportunity to hear CommunityWorks participants share their story, take part in a silent auction featuring hand-made products and art, as well as hear from this year's keynote speaker, Louis Reed.
In addition to the scheduled program, the Community Breakfast is an opportunity to recognize individuals in the community that go above and beyond to serve the needs of the collective. The CommunityCares Award is one of the highest recognitions of service leadership that an individual can receive. An award for the community, voted by the community, we prioritize the experience and insight of our neighbors. With the 2021 award recipients being Representative Leslie Herod and Senator Pete Lee, we are excited to extend the award capacity and create an additional four awards to further recognize our community achievements. These awards uplift the unique and innovative efforts serving our neighbors on a daily basis. To recognize the change makers and holistic healers holding our communities together.
