Your generosity today contributes to free and robust journalism tomorrow. Freedom of expression is the cornerstone of our democratic society, a gift to the Denver Press Club Endowment Fund is an investment in that future.
We are up to 530 reservations for the 20th Annual Damon Runyon Award Banquet, which honors Katie Couric on March 7 at the Denver Marriott City Center. Our capacity is 700. IN OTHER WORDS, DON'T DELAY. If you plan to attend, then NOW is the time to make your reservations. Once we hit 700, we CANNOT accept any more reservations. NO exceptions.
We're asking everyone to make their reservations no later than Feb. 28, at http://tinyurl.com/n9wynze. See full details below under March 7.
Remember, this event is open both to members and nonmembers. And members may purchase as many tickets as they wish at the member rate of $90 per seat.
Among the related happenings:
I'll be a guest on the "Experience Pros Radio Show" from 10:10-10:20 a.m. tomorrow (Feb. 10) on AM 560 KLZ, talking about the club and about Katie Couric's appearance. The interview also will be streamed live on www.experiencepros.com.
Katie Couric prepared this promo for us to help boost the Runyon, and please share it with everyone you've ever met:
Dues payments are due on March 1. We will, as usual, accept them after that date.
The club is accepting donations of books, CDs and videos for the next book sale (date to be determined). One note: For books, we can accept only ones that are in good shape, and we can't accept textbooks, magazines, computer books or encyclopedias. To arrange a pickup, call Dan Danbom at 303-722-1846.
