Thanks to all of you who joined us last night for our Exclusive Preview of First Bite Boulder. The event was a great success, and we truly enjoyed seeing over 500 new and familiar faces come out to have fun and support the Boulder JCC and the Cornerstone Capital Campaign. Together, we raised over $100,000 inspired by a creative video: Watch it Now!

We sincerely thank the following restaurants and caterers for their support and hope that you will join them for First Bite Boulder the week of November 9-17th: 4580, Aji, H BurgerCO, Japango, Leaf, Pizzeria Da Lupo, Rio Grande, Spice of Life Catering, Sweet Pea Catering, T/ACO, and Tahona.

Thanks to a generous match from the Sturm Family Foundation (with the participation of ANB Bank), we have until December 31, 2012 to raise $500,000. If we do, they will match that $500,000 dollar for dollar, bringing us to $18 million and our pre-construction goal!

As of today, we have only $200,000 more to go! Make your pledge by December 31, 2012 to have your gift doubled and help us achieve our goal.
