AURORA, Colorado – August 12, 2013 -
“Hearts of All Ages” is a family get-together that takes place on Valentine’s Day each year. 2014 marks the seventh consecutive year that UCH will celebrate with the community, giving families a chance to spend Valentine’s Day together while raising money for various programs at University of Colorado Hospital. In 2012, the kid-friendly get-together easily set an attendance record, nearly tripling the figure recorded for the inaugural event in 2008.
It featured many familiar faces, including Channel 4’s Ed Greene, who has emceed the event every year. The soulful cover band Big Bang once again provided a memorable soundtrack for the evening. Broncos mascot Thunder also made his regular appearance, good-naturedly submitting to hundreds of photo requests – without once saying neigh.
Peter H. Coors and his wife, Marilyn, always had mixed emotions about leaving their small children behind while they went out to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Pete always wanted to find a way to spend the day as a family and celebrate together. He believed his work at University of Colorado Hospital would be a great opportunity to make this dream a reality and, at the same time, create a fundraiser for the hospital. With this, and help from Sharon Magness Blake, the Hearts of All Ages event was born. The inaugural event was held on February 14, 2008.
