University of Colorado Cancer Center’s (UCCC) ”Dinner in White” has become one of Denver’s not-to-miss events in the last five years.

The event is modeled after Paris’s Le Diner En Blanc. “It’s a fundraiser, but people view it as a party,” said event organizer Scottie Brown.  Attendees must dress in all white, bring a picnic dinner and aren’t told the location until they receive a text message the day of the event. UCCC turned to Give by Cell’s text messaging system to alert their 250  attendees list one hour before the event. Participants, upon arrival, were also asked to donate using portable credit card terminals.  Next year, event organizer Scottie Brown may implement Give by Cell’s text to pledge to broaden donating participation.

“Give by Cell’s customer service was fantastic,” said Brown, “I felt that you were there for me.”

With the use of a text message blast right before the event and DIY/BYO feel of the event, Dinner in White stands above many other fundraising events held in Denver.
