Gala 2020 is Postponed

LAEF Friends and Supporters,
After much deliberation and consideration of the rapidly changing and worsening Coronavirus situation, LAEF has decided that it is in the best interest of our gala guests, our students, and the broader community, to postpone this Saturday’s LAEF Gala.
Every thing we do at LAEF is done with our mission in mind, to provide access to a higher education for Colorado’s Hispanic and Latino students. At the core of all we do is a focus to help students earn their college degree, and that includes providing significant scholarship dollars to talented students who could use the financial assistance to pursue their education. But we also work with a vision to improve our broader community.
We had planned one of the largest public gatherings in Denver this weekend, including close to 100 students. All of our major Colorado universities have implemented mandatory on-line courses, keeping all students out of classes. We would have been putting students and guests into a more harmful situation. 
Finally, we have a fabulous drawing planned with the winner able to choose from one of four great travel experiences. We have extended the time to purchase tickets until Friday, March 27, 2020 at 4:00 PM. LAEF will draw the winning ticket on Facebook Live on Monday, March 30, 2020 at 12:00 PM.
Thank you for your continued support of LAEF.
