EVENT HIGHLIGHT

January 9: Blue Ribbon Legislative Reception - show our state legislators the full force of our industry


JOIN US FOR THE POPULAR BLUE RIBBON LEGISLATIVE RECEPTION

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 | 6:00-8:00 pm 
History Colorado Center | 1200 Broadway, Denver 80203
 

Commonly referred to as the most popular reception of the season, the CRA Blue Ribbon Legislative Reception always draws a large crowd of elected officials - but you need to be there too! We talk to legislators all throughout the year, but it means so much more when they can speak directly to you. Your personal stories go a long way in helping us communicate the difficulties and pressures faced in this industry. Every year hundreds of bills are introduced, many of which directly impact your business, can add burdensome regulations and can hurt your bottom line. Your attendance goes a long way in helping us to be more effective. Tickets are $100 contribution per person 


2019 INDUSTRY NYE BASH TO SUPPORT THE CRF ANGEL RELIEF FUND

 
Our industry works hard. We never get to celebrate the big holidays like the 9 to 5 world. We’re always catering to those who get to enjoy holiday nights out on the town with their friends but never seem to have the favor returned. Not anymore. It’s time for IndiCard to host the 2nd Annual Industry New Year’s Bash to let our hard working industry crew cut loose with the people and brands they love the most. The best part? It's all to raise money for the Colorado Restaurant Foundation Angel Relief Fund. Sunday, January 6th @ Revel Social.
