You are invited to the first Annual CU Denver DREAMers Benefit on October 5th, 2016 at the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant in downtown Denver.  The event will have appetizers, beverages, and a variety of speakers and entertainers.  There will also be a silent auction for guests to bid on during the evening. Funds from the benefit will go towards scholarships for the DREAMer students at CU. To purchase your ticket please visit:

 A DREAMer student is an undocumented student who pursues higher education. DREAM stands for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors.  
Because these students are undocumented, they are ineligible to receive federal or state financial aid, making it even more difficult to afford college.
