We are thrilled to announce our 2014 speaker for The Journey! The inaugural year of The Journey was a smashing success, raising funds for our literacy efforts in the Denver metro community. Join us in 2014 as we again honor our past, look to our future, and raise funds for our beloved community.

When you purchase tickets/tables for The Journey, you support our literacy efforts in the community, including our very own Read2Kids and Kids Connect programs, as well as our One Book 4 Colorado sponsorship. The JLD is also proud to partner with Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia and the Mile High United Way on Colorado Reads 2013 - The Early Literacy Initiative. Learn more about our impact in the community.
Shannon Sharpe is considered one of the greatest Tight Ends to ever play the game. His contributions to the NFL are legendary. He personified what an athlete should be and ended his illustrious career etching his place in history as the all-time NFL leader on several prestigious lists. A lesser known fact about Shannon is his dedication to literacy and education. Shannon came from humble beginnings. It wasn't until his early teen years that Shannon learned to read, guided by his grandmother’s influence. His grandmother stressed the importance of education and pushed Shannon to become the man he is today. Partnering with Shannon Sharpe exemplifies the Junior League of Denver’s commitment to literacy, and proceeds from The Journey will support our efforts in the community.
In addition to Shannon, we have wonderful supporters that have graciously agreed to participate in The Journey!
Our very own Denver Mayor, Michael B. Hancock will speak at the event. Thank you for your support, Mayor Hancock!
Lauren Whitney, CBS4 Weather Anchor and JLD member, will emcee this year's Journey event! Thank you for all you do for the JLD, Lauren.
Reggie Rivers will introduce Shannon at The Journey! Reggie Rivers is a former NFL running back who played six seasons with the Denver Broncos during the 1990s. Reggie is a media personality and business owner, who has worked in newspaper, radio and television in Denver. Thank you for your support, Reggie!
