Join us for a Special Back to the Future Event

Our social event, OLLI Back to the Future, will be held on Sunday, May 5 from 3:30-6:00 at the beautiful new senior living community Acoya Cherry Creek, 301 S. Harrison St., Denver. It is close to Alameda and Colorado Boulevard and there will be valet parking provided.

The event, subtitled “Beatles, Brews, and Bellbottoms” celebrates the rich history of OLLI at DU as well as the rewarding new directions we have taken in pursuing lives of fulfillment. Dress is nice casual, or ‘60s attire if you so dare.  There will be music, an auction, and other fun events.

This is a very important event for OLLI at DU given that our fiscal year ends June 30. Your $75 entry ticket provides light food fare, music, complimentary beer and wine, and tremendous camaraderie and will help OLLI balance its budget in these post-pandemic times.  You are welcome to bring a guest to this event.

An auction is planned and we welcome donations of vacation weekends/weeks, home services, golf packages, artwork, etc.  And finally, please consider becoming an OLLI sponsor of the event for $500.  Sponsors will be recognized both in the program and at the event.
