Friends Of Denver Parks To Hold Major Fundraiser Saturday, October 26 At Crystal Rose

by Rebecca Allen

Friends of Denver Parks (Friends) is continuing its battle to preserve open space against the Hancock administration and Denver Public Schools (DPS) and is holding a critical fundraiser at the Crystal Rose on Saturday, October 26 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. with tickets going on sale for $100 each. Crystal Rose is located at 9755 East Hampden Avenue.

The grassroots group has surprised insiders by its staying power and continued growth against some of the most powerful groups in Denver. It has brought a lawsuit against Denver and DPS to prevent the destruction of a key portion of Hentzell Park referred to Hampden Heights Park North.

The group lost a request for a preliminary injunction before Judge Herbert Stern in June which is now on appeal up to the Colorado Court of Appeals. The trial on a permanent injunction against the destruction of the open space is scheduled for May 19, 2014.
