Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) hosted A Bite of the Ballroom on March 24 in Seawell Ballroom to introduce the facility’s six new catering partners over creative cocktails and tasty hors d’oeuvres. The event also showcased what theatrically trained event managers can do with the ballroom’s Broadway-quality lighting and sound systems.

Biscuits + Berries Catering Co., Catering by Design, Epicurean Group, Occasions Catering, Serendipity Catering, and Sodexo Live! (Centerplate) are the six businesses providing service for DCPA-managed venues, including Seawell Ballroom, Directors Room, Helen Bonfils Theatre Complex lobby, and other spaces when performance schedules allow. SODEXO Live! also has been selected to provide beverage service, which means that all DCPA venues are managed by one beverage provider.

Since Longmont's Can’d Aid was founded in 2013, more than 2 million cans of water have been distributed, over 9,600 skateboards and bikes and 4,000 art kits built for underserved youth, and more than 3,000 instruments donated. This has been accomplished with the help of volunteers nationwide and through relationships with community leaders, nonprofit organizations, volunteers, and corporate partners.
