August 7, 2018 (Denver, CO) – John Elway, Larry Mueller and George Solich Announce Flight to Luxury 2018. The ninth annual Flight to Luxury takes flight on Friday, September 14, 2018 transforming Centennial Airport’s XJet and Signature Flight Support hangars into one of the city’s most prestigious charity events of the year. This year, Flight to Luxury benefits PIVOT, a newly launched Denver-based nonprofit founded by John Elway, Larry Mueller, and George Solich. 

 

PIVOT is an innovative, dynamic new concept with a vision to empower youth-focused nonprofits to collaborate for greater impact. By working together, PIVOT propels Denver to provide the full spectrum of what it takes to help children thrive. PIVOT envisions a future where Colorado youth are empowered to succeed in the multi-dimensional aspects of life, bridging the gaps to provide full access to quality education, mental wellness, nutrition, and career readiness. Flight to Luxury aims to raise 1.5 million dollars for PIVOT at this year’s event, through ticket sales, sponsorships, live and silent auctions, and match programs. 

 

Flight to Luxury is truly unlike any other event in Denver. Presented by Cuvée, the red-carpet hangar party leverages extraordinary, luxury experiences to deliver meaningful impact. Since the event’s inception, Flight to Luxury has raised over six million dollars for Denver youth charities. “We have a unique opportunity through Cuvée to use our business platform, network, and properties, to benefit the Colorado youth-focused nonprofit community in a very big way,”says Larry Mueller, founder of Cuvée and co-founder of PIVOT.“Flight to Luxury has always been very important to our philanthropic mission, but now with PIVOT, we have the capacity to do so much more to empower our Colorado nonprofits to work in collaboration and deliver measurable outcomes for our community.
