Recently, I posted a speech by my friend, Tommy Spaulding, CEO of Up with People. As you may know, I sit on the organization’s Board Of Directors and am a raving fan of UWP’s program and everything it stands for.
I’m also a total sucker for their tremendous, inspiring show.
If you happen to live in the Denver, Colorado area, or if for some reason you’ll be there on the evening of February 9th, you have an opportunity to see the show in all its glory.
I’ll be there too, so please come on by and say hello.
I’ll let Tommy fill you in on the details for this exciting event. Here’s a personal invite from the man himself (oh, and be sure to click the “parade” links to get a taste of the Up with People spirit):
Dear Farber Friends,
I would like to personally invite you to a night that Up with People has been planning for quite some time – our Denver Premier of our new Up with People show. Please invite your family, neighbors and friends to a very special evening at the Buell Theatre in downtown Denver on Saturday, February 9th at 7:30pm.
In our 43 year history, over 20,000 people from 72 different countries have traveled the world with Up with People. We have performed at four Super Bowl Halftimes, the Olympics, the White House, The Vatican, World Cup, and most recently the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and The Tournament of Roses Parade.
But it’s not just about the show. Up with People’s new business model highlights a local charity in every city we visit throughout the world and gives 100% of all tickets sales from our Up with People show to that local charity. We are now in the business of raising money and raising awareness for local non-profits throughout the world.
Up with People’s international world headquarters is in Denver, Colorado, and this is our first appearance at the Buell Theatre. It’s particularly fitting, therefore, that 100% of all tickets sales for this special event will go directly to the Metro Denver Habitat for Humanity.
I know that Steve Farber’s readers are all over the world, but I hope that those of you in the Denver area can join us for this exciting event.
All The Best,
