The Magic of Morocco – Thank you!

Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the 2019 Denver Center for International Studies Foundation Passport Dinner: the Magic of Morocco!

Community Ambassador Award recipient Amy SchwartzBuildStrong Education

Thanks to your generosity, we raised more than $35,000 for student travel scholarships and cultural activities at home and abroad. Students of the four DCIS schools will be able to experience the world outside the classroom — thanks to you!

Guests enjoyed cocktails and dinner in the beautiful museum atrium, shared in the celebration of the evening’s honorees, and showed their support for travel and cultural exchange in our paddle raiser.

Student art work (and adorable elementary school thank you notes) was on display. Guests also stopped by the Magic of Morocco selfie station to snap a photo!

Melanie Grant Global Ambassador Award recipient Gabriela Cornejo Figueroa honored her mother in her acceptance speech.
