Elizabeth Shipiatsky of Classical Ballet of Colorado visited with Sarah Kinzer, Director of Physical and Mental Health at The Gathering Place, Denver’s only daytime drop-in center for women and children who are experiencing homelessness and poverty. Elizabeth donated tickets to the Nutcracker so that clients of The Gathering Place could attend the performance. They really enjoyed the show and the opportunity to do something festive for the holidays! CBC families also contributed clothing and financial donations in a drive for The Gathering Place.
