Event Brief

The CRA Mile High Chapter conducts an annual industry appreciation party which benefits the CRF, the CRA Mile High Chapter Hardship Fund, and Work Options For Women. This was one party not to be missed! Guests put on their Red Dresses and dancing shoes, and were treated to 10 signature wine & spirits sampling stations from Republic National Distributing. Innovative Food Stations provided by Epicurean Group and several prominent local restaurants coordinated by E5 Events. Tina Mark and the Millionaires got the crowd on the dance floor all night.
