Events that Fund Kids' Cancer Research

At first glance, it might be difficult to see what boxing and finding a cure for childhood cancer have in common, but for us, it’s perfectly clear. Both require focus, dedication, and the strength to persevere in the face of failure, all for the rare moments of triumph.

That’s why it’s fitting that the main event of Friday Night Fights is The Morgan Adams Foundation vs. Pediatric Cancer.

Zach’s Chili Challenge is our food and beverage competition featuring unlimited samples from Colorado craft breweries, small-batch distilleries, and chefs from local Denver restaurants all coming together to “Bring the Heat and Bring the Hope” in support of children and young adults who are in the fight against pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer. Guests cast their vote for their favorite chili, beer, and spirit alongside a panel of food critic judges to crown the champions.
