Aim for the Sky in the Mile High – Give Generously in Denver!

AASV Foundation Live & Silent Fundraising Auctions
Monday, February 27, 2017
AASV 2017 Annual Meeting
Denver, Colorado

What better place than Denver to support the AASV Foundation? Denver's beginnings were all about gold. In 1858, a small group of prospectors from Georgia discovered gold at the base of the Rocky Mountains. The gold rush that followed brought both prospectors and speculators to the area, and "Denver City" was born. After the Civil War, the discovery of silver brought a second onslaught of fortune seekers. With that history in mind, bring your own sacks of gold and silver to Denver and support the AASV Foundation! The AASV Foundation Auction Committee invites you to relax and enjoy the mountain scenery and vibrant way of life so evident in the Mile High City. Please be generous investing in the future of the AASV. Our success depends on you, the membership. We are confident of our endeavor and the commitment of AASV members.
