The 17th Annual John Lynch Foundation Salute the Stars awards luncheon, sponsored by Scott Reiman and the Reiman Foundation, was held at Denver’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High in May. The event featured more than 2,500 participants and awarded nearly $90,000 in scholarships to student-athletes from the metro Denver area.
FourPoint Energy and the Reiman Foundation sponsored the event, featuring Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s keynote address, as well as award presentations from John and Linda Lynch and Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock.
Nearly 1,800 students from local school districts were invited by the John Lynch Foundation, allowing them to share in the inspirational stories of their student-athlete peers. The night before the event at Mile High Stadium, the John Lynch Foundation Kick Off Party took place at the Denver Tech Center’s Venice Ristorante. The memorable evening featured entertainment from Matt Mauser, the Frank Sinatra Tribute Band, and raised over $410,000 through a live auction to support many of Colorado’s inspiring student-athletes.
