30 Years of Serving & Empowering the Community: CHARG Celebrates Major Milestone at Art Show

Thank you to all of our friends and community members who were able to attend CHARG’s 30th Anniversary Art Show and Fundraiser event on November 7 at the Space Gallery! It was our pleasure to celebrate this major milestone with you!

In addition to the celebration of our wonderful CHARG community, this event raised nearly $28,000, we sold all but one of our silent auction packages, and ten of our featured artists sold their artwork at the event.

One of the most meaningful parts of the evening was when three CHARG consumers and board members – Barbara Quarton, Larry Brown, and Jim Jochum – shared their stories and personal experiences of how they’ve been involved with CHARG Resource Center over the years. They shared how the positive impact community support and effective treatment programs have made in their lives.

During the program, guests were also excited to hear Hakeem Furious–a wordsmith and Denver slam poet who uses his artistic talents to talk about mental health problems that plague the community and create safe spaces to talk about those problems.

The incredibly generous spirit of our community at this event will help CHARG continue to fund our programs that serve and empower individuals managing mental illness. We couldn’t do it without you!

It was a full house at the Space Gallery.
