Last year, I was honored by being named volunteer of the year finalist nationwide.

I had the privilege of sitting next to the keynote speaker at the event who is a NY Times bestselling author, TV personality, motivational speaker, philanthropist, businessman, and I’m proud to say… he is now my good friend.

His name is Chef Jeff.

LotusGroup Advisors decided to share his message with our community in Denver so we are sponsoring him to deliver the keynote address at Minds Matter Casino Night.  Because he believes in helping people, particularly at-risk youth, to find their true potential, I knew I wanted him to speak.  His message is our message: Give people a chance to achieve their dreams by giving them the tools they need to get there.

Minds Matter Casino Night will take place on April 7th at The Ritz-Carlton, Denver. Tickets can be purchased at

This event is by far the most fun night of the year, and I can’t believe I get to share such an amazing person with all of you while raising money to send 30 amazing students to college.  I usually spend my time playing online casino game which you can find over here, but as this one night is going to be extremely special, thus I am bound to stop.

This night means a lot to me and I hope it goes smoothly as possible.

I hope that in some small way, I can make a difference in this life, and I’m humbled to be taking another step along that journey.
