The Joseph Family
In October 2012, the members of the Joseph Family Foundation assembled a committee of 50 volunteers forming the vision and beginning the strategic execution for the inaugural Urban Nights held in August 2013. The committee's vision for the event was to artfully meld a high production fashion show with the message of Urban Peak. A "runway for a reason" was born launching Denver's newest and most exciting Summer fundraiser.
The inaugural event welcomed over 1,400 guests, raised more than $150,000 for Urban Peak.
Over its six years, the Urban Nights fashion show and fundraiser has welcomed more than 8500 guests and has raised more than $3 million dollars. In 2018, under the extraordinary leadership of chairs Andrew Feinstein and Sarah McCarthy, the event donated $502,000 to Urban Peak.
Urban Nights has also introduced Urban Peak to many new and prospective long-term donors. Most importantly, Urban Nights continues its mission of raising awareness to the plight of youth homelessness.
As it's founding and chief sponsor, the Joseph Family Foundation sponsors and underwrites Urban Nights guaranteeing that no financial risk flows to any beneficiary. All net proceeds from Urban Nights are donated to the beneficiary.
