The Party of the Century

  • DATE: February 12, 2016.
  • LOCATION: History Colorado

To borrow a phrase from the 1920s, the Emily Griffith Foundation’s Party of the Century was the bee’s knees.

There might not have been cocktails crafted from bathtub gin at the speakeasy-themed soiree celebrating the Emily Griffith Technical College’s 100th anniversary, but the food, dress and music had a definite Prohibition-era feel.

Period costumes, finger sandwiches made from such throwback ingredients as deviled ham and pimiento cheese, and dancing to classic hits performed by Lannie Garrett helped set the mood for this Feb. 12 event held at the History Colorado Center.

“Do you know why this is such a great night?” asked Alby Segall, president of the sponsoring Emily Griffith Foundation board. “Because there are no tables of 10, no speeches, no auctions and no solicitations. The only order of business is to have fun.” – Denver Post, Joanne Davidson
