JCRC to Honor Gov. Bill Ritter at Annual Luncheon

It would be great to have a Boulder presence at this year’s Jewish Community Relations Council Luncheon where the JCRC will honor former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter and attorney Elliott Husney on Thursday, June 16 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm (program starts at 11:30 am) at Temple Emanuel, 51 Grape St., Denver, 80220. Ritter will receive the JCRC’s 2011 Public Official Recognition Award.

Ritter is currently the director of the Center for the New Energy Economy (CNEE) at Colorado State University. He was elected as Colorado’s 41st governor in 2006. In July 2010, Ritter traveled to Israel with Federation on the Colorado Economic Development & International Trade Mission. The mission focused on exchanging knowledge, advancing research and building partnerships in innovative fields such as renewable energy, clean-tech, water and agriculture.

The cost to attend the luncheon is $50 per person. For more information or to make a reservation, please e-mail: events@ajfcolorado.org or 303.316.6466. Information and reservations can also be made online at www.jewishcolorado.org/jcrcluncheon. To honor either of the award recipients with a personal or corporate tribute, please contact Susan Weinberger at sweinberger@ajfcolorado.org or 303.316.6481.
