Emily's Parade Sponsors, Contributors and Volunteers

The "I Love U Guys" Foundation, represented by our Board of Directors, would like to thank all the wonderful, talented people who help make Emily's Parade such a cool event!

  • We sincerely thank Columbine High School and specifically Frank DeAngelis, Karen Jones and Eileen Doolan for their continued support. Columbine High School hosts the start of Emily's Parade each year and donates the proceeds of tee-shirt sales to The "I Love U Guys" Foundation. They continue to help in so many ways.

  • The Bailey community, plus students and staff in the Platte Canyon School District have welcomed Emily's Parade each year. Special thanks to Superintendent Dr. Jim Walpole, Elliot Mansk, Danielle Haddad and Cathy Scott.

Words can only begin to express the depth of our gratitude.
