DENVER — Denver Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway and his wife, Paige, will be honored with the High Hopes Tribute Award for their philanthropic efforts at the 29th Annual Carousel Ball on Friday at 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Denver.
Proceeds from the event, which includes a silent and live auction, will benefit the programs of the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, which funds programs for clinical care and research for thousands of children and adults.
"John Elway has been a leading community figure, world class athlete and outstanding role model for so many young people," said Barbara Davis, whose daughter, Dana, the foundation's interim executive director, is chairing the ball. "We are thrilled to salute him and have the Elways on our team."
In addition to working with their own individual causes, John and Paige Elway have also worked together with many of their community outreach initiatives. The couple has volunteered their time for the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver in addition to supporting the Barbara Davis Center to help those affected by diabetes.
