Fighting Hunger at the Capitol

For the past few years, we’ve been fortunate to benefit from the generosity of some of our favorite chefs, farmer, ranchers and legislators’ generosity and talents.  On March 19th, our own Kevin Seggelke accepted a HUGE check (as you can see below) from the Colorado Ag Council downtown at the beautiful Capitol building.  We were lucky enough to sample to delectable eats provided by local chefs and hear from our friends, Adele & Mark from 9NEWS.  Click HERE for the Denver Post’s summary of this awesome day.  It’s definitely one we look forward to every year!
