Colorado Black Health Collaborative’s 2nd Annual Fundraising Gala

The second annual Colorado Black Health Collaborative (CBHC) Black and White Gala was a wonderful success! The Marriott Denver Tech Center Hotel, was the meeting place of sponsors, partners, members and friends to celebrate CBHC’s 11-year anniversary serving the Community. It was a place full of happy people who came dressed in their finery, laughing and flowing in the moments.

Thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, partners, members, donors, exhibitors, and hotel staff for making Colorado Black Health Collaborative’s second Fundraising Gala a memorable success!

Special Thanks to Keynote Speaker Bill Bellamy!

Bill Bellamy discovered early in his life that he enjoyed making people laugh. He has become a very accomplished comedian, actor, and host.  His credits as a standup comic include appearances on Def Comedy Jam, The Improv, The Comic Strip, and The Comedy Store. He has hosted the hit game show Let’s Ask America and Last Comic Standing, as well as others. His movies include the classics How to be a Player, Any Given Sunday, and The Brothers, to name a few.

Bill Bellamy always is the life of the party and his time with us at the 2019 Colorado Black Health Collaborative Black and White Gala will be no exception. He will masterfully discuss the health issues that affect our community, in funny and relatable ways that inspire awareness and taking action.  He will encourage us to be serious about our health and the preventative measures for the diseases statistically known to affect the black community. Bill is a champion of non-profits, supporting organizations that target diabetes, health, and wellness. One of his passions is fitness — to get that “sexy look.” He stated in a Black Doctor article, “It is said that the keys to good health are sweating and laughing every day.” You will leave this Gala having experienced the power of humor, inspired to address not only your own health but also that of the community around you.


A special thank you to our 2019 sponsors for their support of
CBHC’s mission to achieve health equity in Colorado’s Black community!
