Member Connections Committee (MCC) Presents: Cocktails for a Cause


2020 has been a tough year for everyone, especially for nonprofits.

Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 2, for a fun event that involves cocktails (spiked or not) and causes. Featuring local mixologist extraordinaire Tim Taylor, come learn how to make a new holiday drink (an ingredient list will be sent to you), network with your peers and hear from some great local charities doing work here in Colorado.

In advance of Colorado Gives Day (, which is Dec. 8, we invite you to share in some holiday cheer, toast to a better 2021, and learn more about:

  1. COCPA Education Foundation – Providing annual scholarships to accounting students
  2. Brent’s Place – serving kids and families going through Cancer treatment
  3. Food Bank of the Rockies – providing food to those in need
  4. MaxFund Denver – Serving as a local, no kill animal shelter and adoption center

Representatives from all four organizations will be on hand to share their missions with time to ask questions. We will also show you how to use the Colorado Gives Day website to schedule your end-of-the-year giving for 2020. Remember, most charitable organizations get the bulk of their donations in the last two months of the year so your support is critical. Choose to give to any or all four of these charities or choose your own. Please just give. 

Added bonus: Our partner Xero, Inc. will be holding a drawing during the event. They will give a $50 donation to the charity of choice for TWO lucky winners. Community involvement is part of Xero’s mission and we are thrilled to work with them. Additionally, COCPA will be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card to the most festively dressed/Zoom window decorated attendee. This is a totally subjective contest so think creatively about what you wear and what background you choose. Participation in either of these bonus giveaways is totally voluntary and not required to attend. 

We encourage you to invite, family, friends and/or colleagues. This event is open to all. Simply select the number of registrations you want (down below), be sure to enter attendee information for each and then hit the “Buy Tickets” button to complete the process.

Due to COVID-19, this event will be online only. The meeting details will be sent to the email address listed on each ticket.
