2019 Diamonds in the Ruff
A magical night at Diamonds in the Ruff: Fall fundraiser rakes in more than $400,000
On Oct. 12, 450 sparkling guests gathered at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center for our eighth annual Diamonds in the Ruff, presented by Decorative Materials and The Kaplan Family in loving memory of Werner Kaplan. The magical evening raised a record amount of more than $400,000 to support the life-changing work of Freedom Service Dogs.
Guests watched heartwarming videos showcasing the inspirational stories of four FSD clients, marveled at a demonstration featuring service dogs in training Sookie and Magic, bid on treasures at the fabulous silent and live auctions, and purchased flutes of champagne for the chance to win a custom three-stone, 1-carat diamond pendant, donated by Larry Blauweiss of Fifth Avenue Designs.
Thank you to our sponsors
