Local Artists Come Together To Benefit Denver's Mango House For Refugees

This Saturday, December 9th, several Denver artists will come together to support the Mango House on East Colfax, a basic needs pantry for Denver’s refugee community. Mango House, which is currently open one day per week, serves as a free clinic, food pantry, dentist, and youth program integrator, and is free to the refugee community.

Saturday’s festivities have been coordinated by Anthony Ruptak and Corrie Ehler. The night will feature performances by Venus Cruz (KUVO Jazz Odyssey), David Burchfield, Los Mocochetes (Youth On Record) and Ruptak.

Said organizer Ruptak, “These concerts serve in an effort to raise awareness of the critical needs of our refugee community, raise money and donations, and to support equality, inclusion, and acceptance of our neighbors in this incredibly dark and tumultuous time.”

Attendees are asked to bring a donation of food, clothing, housewares, or toiletries in exchange for a free concert ticket, food, and crafts.
