Dear Friend, In light of recent political events, many of us are looking for ways to come together in community and take action. This desire led Charlie to ask himself, "what can I do? How can I help?" Thus, the People's Inaugural Ball was born!

Charlie Stein, Chelsea Norton, and a group of volunteer friends have worked to plan an evening of live music, entertainment and education at the Boulder Theater on January 20, 2017. More than a dozen local nonprofits in current need of volunteer support will be present at the event, allowing guests to learn more about how they can make a difference in our community.

All proceeds from the event will go directly to our participating nonprofits. This is an event by the people, for the people, and we hope you'll join us and spread the word so we can make it an evening to remember with impact that reaches far beyond the evening alone.

With love, Charlie, Chelsea, and the People's Inaugural Ball team
