12th Annual Attention Homes Gala: All That Jazz

On Saturday May 4, 320 guests gathered at the Embassy Suites in Boulder for a roaring twenties gala to benefit youth at Attention Homes!

We are so grateful for the 29 event sponsors, the countless auction donors, and the hundreds of supporters that made the event a success, raising over $325,000 for the programs at Attention Homes! These funds will directly go towards helping youth and young adults exit homelessness and move towards independence.
