Wine in the Pines was founded 29 years ago by Mike and Margaret Smith, owners of Dillon Ridge Liquors in Summit County. Their vision was to create an event to help people like their daughter Kelly, who has Cerebral Palsy. Named after Kelly, CP of Colorado’s Employment Works program located in the Kelly Smith Employment Center, headquarters in Denver.
CP of Colorado’s Employment Works program reached 3492 people with disabilities last year across the state. The center helps everyone, regardless of ability reach their potential through job training, benefit planning and other services. Employment Works is dedicated to helping individuals with challenges and barriers become self-sufficient and independent through meaningful employment.
Cerebral Palsy of Colorado serves over 42,000 people statewide with a wide variety of abilities through early education, statewide family support and referral services and the employment program.
