ELEVATE Gala & Educator of the Year

ELEVATE Gala & Educator of the Year

Celebrating Our Educators at Elevate 2023!

We were honored to celebrate our extraordinary educators and support the work of the Cherry Creek Schools Foundation at our gala on Match 30, 2023 at the Broncos Training Complex / UC Health Training Center. The support of our community allows us us to continue supporting educators, students, and schools.  Proceeds from this event supports the work of the Cherry Creek Schools Foundation and help fund programs that give back to Cherry Creek’s educators and students, like CCSF's Educator Initiative Grants program which gave  $193,000 to CCSD educators this school year.


We are grateful to our Community Champions in helping us make this night a reality: JHL Constructors, United Healthcare, Johnson Controls, Ed & Kacy Adams, Margie & Joe Adams, MDC Richmond, Westerra, Health One, DLR Group, Knoll Team, 1st Bank, Community College of Aurora Foundation, Butler Snow, Plante Moran, Cherry Creek Education Association, Housing Authority of the City of Aurora, ANB Bank, Alpine Bank, Saunders, University of Colorado, Denver, GE Johnson, JP Morgan, CCS Facility Services, Kore, Aon, Kaiser Permanente, and Powered by Purpose.

Congratulations to the Educators of the Year and thank you to our generous sponsors for all your support of Cherry Creek Schools' educators, students, schools and community!
