So Long, Farewell, Jay Leno from the Tonight Show! 22 years and 160,000 jokes! Wow! As Billy Crystal put it on your final night,” You were America’s night light, you helped us through good times and bad, our country would stay up for your monologues and to hear the news in your perspective.” This painting is devoted to your hard work and entertainment.
Art, music,fashion, jets, sports cars, and luxury Cuvée villas came together on Friday, September 20th, 2013 to benefit Denver’s Youth. The Fourth Annual Flight to Luxury event, presented by Cuvée Ventures, raised proceeds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, an organization that provides a safe, enriching place for more than 2,000 youth to go to every day after school and during the summer.
The event’s primary objective was to unite the Denver Community in support of a life-changing mission: To allow Denver’s youth the opportunity to succeed.
Cuvée’s Director of Marketing, Laura Cisco, who was instrumental in the planning of the annual event was looking for entertainment that would add to the impact of the event and ensure guests had something new to talk about, so she hired local celebrity Brian Olsen Art In Action. Olsen warmed up with a fashionable performance painting of Marilyn Monroe followed by a one of a kind custom piece of the Denver Broncos Logo which was signed live both by Denver Broncos executive vice president of football operations, John Elway, and wide receiver Wes Welker and immediately auctioned for over tens of thousands of dollars during the event.
Over 1,000 attendees experienced the 2013 Hanger party created by Larry Mueller, the Managing Partner of Cuvée Ventures. “So many of us go to the typical charity events where you sit around a round table and we really wanted to do something that was the antithesis of that.”
The Signature Flight Support private jet hangar at Centennial Airport housed the red-carpet event showcasing the most elite elements of spectacular travel: Cuvée’s custom-couture villas in the world’s most stunning destinations, first-class private jets by Jet Linx, and luxury sports cars by Ferrari of Denver and Sill-TerHar Motors. Also featured was a couture fashion show from local Denver boutiques, delectable cuisine and drinks from the Mile High City’s top eateries and hip hop violinist, Maestro Hughes.
Cuvée found a way to wow their guests utilizing Brian Olsen while uniting the local community to raise funds for an important cause. Find the right way to energize your next meeting or event by maximizing Brian Olsen’s fine artistry and performance.
