Diamonds in the Ruff 2018 Video
On Oct. 20, 570 sparkling guests gathered at Wings Over the Rockies Centennial: Exploration of Flight for our seventh annual Diamonds in the Ruff, presented by Visa. The sold-out event raised a record amount of more than $330,000 to support the life-changing work of Freedom Service Dogs.
Aristea Brady Smith and Jeremy Hubbard Aristea Brady of FOX31 Denver were the evening’s excellent emcees, and former Denver Broncos running back Reggie Rivers returned as our auctioneer extraordinaire. Guests enjoyed a demo featuring service dog-in-training Squints, shopped the fabulous silent and live auctions, and purchased flutes of champagne for the chance to win a one-carat, custom diamond pendant, donated by Larry Blauweiss of Fifth Avenue Designs. They also premiered a special video featuring two clients who have received service dogs from FSD. Get some tissue and view the video below!
Many thanks and tail wags to our wonderful sponsors, guests, volunteers, and supporters for making this evening so special! View Diamonds in the Ruff photos.
