“Here at the Miracle, Christmas takes on a whole new meaning,” stated Chad Ashley, General Manager, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. “We bring the community together for a day filled with attentive service, overwhelming abundance and dignity. Gone is the casual décor typical to most breweries. Instead, our guests dine on white linen table cloths, china and real silverware. We want our guests, especially the children, to truly enjoy the holiday.”

This day is made possible by the generosity of countless community sponsors and partners including Simon Properties who has co-hosted a toy drive, Kittles, Piazza Produce, Marsh Supermarkets, American Linen, Sara Lee, Tyson and Reinhardt Foods and The Rock Bottom Foundation.

From a single event in Denver in 1996, the Miracle Events have grown in response to the tremendous need across the country. In 2004, over 12,000 disadvantaged people in ELEVEN cities will receive an outpouring of community generosity through the Rock Bottom Foundation Miracle Events. These miraculous Events directly address the needs of homeless and hungry men, women and children in our communities by providing them with a delicious meal, shoes, jackets, diapers, toiletries, baby food and toys during the holidays.
