On Tuesday, April 8, rev up your engines for a night of fast cars and fashion at the annual Charity Preview Party, which benefits three worthy causes: the Clear the Air Foundation, National Jewish Health and the Denver Post Community Foundation.

Guests should dress to impress (business or cocktail attire suggested) for an exclusive preview of the 2014 Denver Auto Show, a live fashion show, a catered reception and of course, music (always the key to a successful bash).

The “Live and Let Drive” themed event will kick off with a champagne toast by 2014 Denver Auto Show Chair Todd Maul before guests take the first peek at the more than 500 new cars and trucks on display at the Auto Show before it’s open to the public.

The Charity Preview Party will also feature a live fashion show showcasing the latest trends from Soignee Elegant Attire Boutique, A. Tsangas Custom Furs & Leather, and Colorado designer Andreas Tsagas. For this portion, local celebrity and star of Bravo’s Shear Genius, Matthew Morris of Matthew Morris Salon & Skincare, will do the hair and make up. Former Denver Broncos Cheerleaders Tameka Kueser and Kim Bruan will provide the models along with  Donna Baldwin Models.

All this fun alone makes it worth the $100 ticket price, but your attendance also benefits three important causes. The Clear the Air Foundation is a nonprofit committed to helping Coloradans who suffer from asthma or other breathing disorders by improving the air quality in our state. National Jewish Health is the leading respiratory hospital in the nation. And the Denver Post Community Foundation supports programs that benefit children and youth such as arts and culture, education and literacy, and the provision of basic human services.

The “Live and Let Drive” event will run from 7:00 to 10:00 pm on Tuesday, April 8 at the Colorado Convention Center. Tickets are available for purchase at www.charitypreviewparty.com.

It’s early in 2014 and Red Rocks Ampitheater has already chalked up one of the tops shows for the season. Friday’s 3rd Annual Winter on the Rocks concert with Jurassic 5 and Ghostland Observatory will be the concert the tens of thousands of people will remember all year long.  And probably even years after. It was tops- and here’s five reasons why.

1. What other concert can you wear snow suits and goggles to? SinceWinter on the Rocks is outside, everyone was bundled up and ready to party in their puffers all night despite the cold (and the six inches of fresh snow).

2. Dancing got a little crazy. With so much snow, parts of the bleachers were icy which meant people were getting creative with their moves. The “slip ‘n slide” move in particular seemed to be popular. Others took on ice skating to bust a move.

3. Cold beer that stays…. really cold. When you’re at an outdoor concert in Colorado in the winter, there’s zero chance of your beer getting warm (gross). Proof: order a Coors, and you’ll see that the bottle is *always* cold activated.

4. The fire pit kept concertgoers warmed up. As much as we appreciate the outdoor concert thing (and the cold beer), being able to head over to the fire pit to warm up felt amazing.

5. It was a truly unique Colorado experience – no one else dares to throw a concert in the snow – brought to us by a true Colorado company. Thanks Icelantic Skis for a great show!
