The organizers of Vail Gay Ski Week announced today that the Denver-based GLBT Community Center of Colorado (“The Center”) has been selected as the principal nonprofit beneficiary for the 2010 event scheduled for January 27 – 31, 2010.

Presented by Rocky Mountain Vacation Rentals, Vail Gay Ski Week will be working with The Center in a number of different areas promoting its event as part of the partnership that aims to raise $ 10,000 for The Center – Colorado’s only statewide GLBT community center.

“By raising these funds, we will help The Center reach its long-term goal of purchasing and renovating a new building in Denver,” said Tommy Z. Hoffman, founder and CEO of Vail Gay Ski Week.

The Angel Wings Benefit Dinner scheduled for Friday, Jan. 29, 2010, will be a key source of donations for The Center during the week. Tickets to the event start at $ 85 for Center members, $ 100 for non-members and $ 150 for VIP seating. For more information on the event or to purchase tickets or tables, contact Cali Adkisson at or 970-790-6176.

“We are grateful to Vail Gay Ski Week for choosing us as its beneficiary. The Angel Wings dinner will raise critical funds to sustain unique and valuable programs through The Center, including Rainbow Alley, the only LGBT youth drop-in space in Denver,” said Carlos Martinez, executive director of the GLBT Community Center of Colorado. “We serve more than 6,000 youth every year through the support of the community and events like this dinner.”
