ADL Celebrates its 70th Anniversary in the Mountain States Region

  • June 28, 2011

More than 200 community members gathered to commemorate the Anti-Defamation League Mountain States Region’s 70th Anniversary Tuesday, June 14th at Mile High Station. The evening was filled with live music provided by the Denver Jazz Band Youth All-Stars and conversation amongst ADL’s closest friends. Denver City Mayor Elect, Michael Hancock, made a special appearance and addressed the crowed pledging his plan for a continued relationship with ADL. Some of the notable guests in attendance were Shelia Bugdanowitz, Barry and Gay Curtiss-Lusher, Sheryl Feiler, Ellen Robinson, Tim Sweeney, Ruth and Warren Toltz and U.S. Attorney John Walsh. The co-chairs of the evening were Neil Oberfeld and Karen Steinhauser.

Since its inception, ADL has fought anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry while defending democratic ideals and protecting civil rights.  Through its work with schools, law enforcement and the community, ADL’s Mountain States Office has built a reputation as a leader in the development of materials, programs and services that build bridges of communication, understanding and respect among diverse groups.

The money raised from the 70th Anniversary Platinum Gala will go to help provide ADL’s programs and services throughout the year and continue ADL’s mission “to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”
