The Class Act Dinner

2019 Enchantment Under the Sea Gala

Join us on November 16th for the 2019 Enchantment Under the Sea Gala, inspired by Back to the Future. We expect over 700 guests to join us at the Hyatt Regency for a cocktail reception, silent auction, plated dinner and program, followed by live music and dancing.

This year we look back with full hearts to celebrate the 24-year history of Denver Urban Scholars and look ahead to our bright future of serving youth and school communities in Denver! Our theme will be 1950’s with a dash of 1989 (for you time-travelers), and fun/kitschy “under the sea” decor.

This year we are excited to welcome keynote speaker, Daniel Coyle. Daniel Coyle is the award-winning, NY Times-bestselling author of several books on leadership and performance, including The Talent Code, The Little Book of Talent, and his newest book, The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups. He also authored Hardball: A Season in the Projects, which was adapted to Hollywood Film starring Keanu Reeves in 2001.
