A huge thank-you to each and every one of the 700 people who showed up at the Briarhurst Manor yesterday evening, December 6 to fête the 2012 Independent Best Of Colorado Springs award winners and support the 58 fabulous local nonprofits of  Give! 2012!

The 2012 Give! Campaign will reap the proceeds from what proved, as usual, to be a whirl of fun times, tasty food and good friends. It’s always a thrill to see the Pikes Peak Region‘s best and brightest (and, in some cases, sparkliest) turned out to the nines in the name of a good cause.

Thanks, too, to Cayton Photography, who captured the party’s best moments and best-dressed for posterity. Take a look at Sean‘s fine work (free to download and share), and join us in applauding the cultural, political, philanthropic and artistic work of the fine folks pictured here. You make us proud and grateful to be a part of this community!
