Urban Peak to Honor Amy Meyer Smith as 2017 Urban Legend
Meyer Smith recognized for her contributions to homeless youth
Denver, Colorado, May 15, 2017 – Urban Peak’s “Urban Nights Denver” will celebrate its fifth year at Mile High Station on August 5th, and once again present Denver’s largest, outdoor urban fashion show under the canopy of the Old Colfax Viaduct at Mile High Station.
Amy Meyer Smith, Marketing Director of Infiniti of Denver, has been named Urban Peak’s 2017 Urban Legend. Each year, the organization honors an Urban Legend to recognize his/her philanthropic work in the community. Meyer Smith is a former Urban Peak board member and past chair of Urban Nights.
“I am proud to honor Amy Meyer Smith this year,” said Gala Chair Donna Crafton Montgomery. “She is a tireless advocate, working on issues that affect our youth. Infiniti of Denver is a staunch supporter of Urban Peak, and our program frequently relies on Amy to share ideas and communicate our mission.”
The theme for this year’s event is Threads of Promise and the entertainment features 90’s rap and fashion icons Salt-N-Pepa. Supporting Crafton Montgomery this year are co-chairs Jill Landman Alfond, Matthew Keeney and Matthew Morris.
“On any given night in Denver, more than 900 youth are homeless or on the verge of becoming homeless,” said Crafton Montgomery. “This year, we are honored to add new beneficiaries that expand our reach into this vulnerable population providing a wide range of services that these kids need to obtain self-sufficiency and a safe life off the streets.”
This year’s charity partners include Urban Peak, The Danny Dietz Foundation and La Academia at The Denver Inner City Parish; all sharing the vision of providing critical services to the at-risk youth that each organization serves.
