His story was going to be featured in a video shown at the Denver Scholarship Foundation’s annual fundraising dinner; when it ended, he would step to the microphone to thank the 1,250 guests for supporting the DSF and the financial aid it gives to promising young people such as himself.

SHOULDN’T YOU BE THINKING SPRING? When it comes to events, Blacktie definitely has its ear to the ground. Accordingly, we’ve got the greatest social calendar in the city. That’s why we know how early spring gets sprung — last week saw four spring events (and one summer event) added to our scene-setting social calendar.

* 3/7/2013 – Warren Village All-Star Breakfast
* 4/11/2013 – Celebrating Civic Leadership Luncheon
* 4/12/2013 – 19th Annual Damon Runyon Award Banquet

CABLELAND GETS A MAKEOVER TO BE A BETTER PLACE TO ENTERTAIN. Writes Suzanne Brown: “The pink baby grand is gone. So are the puffy sofas, the elephant sculptures and the conversation pit. To some, Cableland will always be the “mauve mansion” built in the late 1980s by businessman Bill Daniels. Now, though, the home’s decor has officially joined the 21st century.”

GOODWILL’S MIKE PRITCHARD on why the organization assists United Way: “Goodwill decided to be a part of this giving campaign in the spirit of giving back to our community and showing that it’s not all about Goodwill here at our headquarters. “

ARE YOU IN TELLURIDE? Today’s the deadline for Telluride Foundation grants.

GOOD FOR YOU: David Brown has been named vice president of information technology and business applications for the Daniels Fund. He previously served as a financial analyst and information technology manager for Land Title Guarantee Company.
