On Wednesday, September 14, CREW Denver held its annual Women of Influence Awards at Asterisk in downtown Denver. More than 200 people attended this year’s event, which included talks from keynote speakers Molly Bloom, an entrepreneur and bestselling author, and Kourtny Garrett, president and CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership. Attendees also enjoyed a networking happy hour on the rooftop deck.
“Every year this event grows and outdoes the previous year, and I think it’s a reflection of our organization growing and impacting the community more each year. We had a best-in-class group of nominees, incredible speakers, and a fantastic attendance,” says Blaire Butler, CREW Denver chair.
