Hirschfelds Win the Bonfils-Stanton Award for Community Service

Civic activists, Arlene and Barry Hirschfeld, just received the prestigious Bonfils-Stanton Foundation award for community service. Their years of service in the Denver community span a variety of charities and causes, but it was culture, a Bonfils-Stanton focus, that got the most attention.

Arlene has been one of the chief fundraisers for the Denver Art Museum’s decades-long building program, including the Hamilton Building and now the new Ponti improvements.

Barry was one of the founders of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) in the mid-1980s and has been a supporter ever since. The District first voted on in 1988 was just renewed by voters in 2016 by a 63 percent majority in the seven-county metro area. Arlene and Barry hosted a campaign and fundraising event at their beautiful home.

Barry was one of the metro area’s first leaders to understand the importance of culture to tourism and the local economy.

Thank you Arlene and Barry for your leadership.
