Schomp Ford Presents The Denver Barn Party – a Party with a Purpose
Nothing brings folks together like some good music and a chance to have fun for a good cause.
That’s the story behind the Denver Barn Party, sponsored by Schomp Ford. Held on September 17th at Downtown Denver’s Mission Ballroom, it raised more than $100,000 for the Denver Children’s Foundation and its mission to support organizations helping underprivileged children.
Close to 4,000 people came to the Denver Barn Party to hear headliner Billy Currington, one of country music’s hottest acts. Currington has had eleven #1 hits, and performed them, including his latest, Don’t It. There was also music from Barn Party favorite BlackJack Billy and emerging talent Sykamore.
Attendees sipped adult bevvies from Budweiser, Jack Daniels, Dos Hombres tequila and more. Holders of VIP tix had access to a preshow Tailgate that included food and drink as well as the VIP Buckle Afterparty at RiNo Country Club.
The Denver Children’s Foundation (previously Denver Active 20-30) is an organization of 105 Denver men between the ages of 20-39 who have a twin purpose: raising money to benefit underserved and at-risk children and developing philanthropic leaders “who mobilize the community to impact the lives of disadvantaged children through annual fundraising events and projects.” The organization has been in existence since 1986 and has raised and distributed more than $14 million. This year alone, DCF has raised $1.1 million. Schomp Automotive was the title sponsor for the Denver Barn Party.
