Warm Cookies of the Revolution, Denver’s award-winning "civic health club" is partnering with the Sabrina Merage Foundation and Denver Arts & Venues for a special event at the McNichols Building (144 West Colfax, 2nd Floor) on Thursday, May 28 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Come experience the Afro-pop Jazz Orchestra “The Pink Hawks”, award-winning poet Bobby LeFebre, and the youth mariachi ensemble “El Mariachi Juvenil de Bryant Webster”.

"Soup and Dreams" will feature four community organizations who will "pitch" the audience on the work of another organization. In addition, attendees will enjoy soups from the diverse range of cultures in our community: Burmese, Ethiopian, Mexican, Japanese, Italian, and more.

It’s as easy as this:
Step 1: Throw a few bucks into the hat.
Step 2: Grab some soups from a variety of different cultures.
Step 3: Be entertained by incredible musicians and performers.
Step 4: Listen to four local organizations doing vital work in a changing Denver "pitch" the efforts of another local organization.
Step 5: Find ways to take action.

All donations collected at the door will be distributed among the participating organizations, and attendees will find out ways to take action on hot-button civic issues such as gentrification, inequality, and immigration. Participating community organizations include: Project VOYCE, Project Worthmore, Metro Denver Sanctuary Coalition, and Produce for Pantries.

On-site Spanish language translation will also be available.
