Seen: The Most Interesting Men in Denver at Denver Health Foundation’s Men’s Night Out

February 12, 2018

Inspired, perhaps, by the Dos Equis beer commercials featuring “the most interesting man in the world,” the Denver Health Foundation chose seven high-profile gents to preside over its annual Men’s Night Out.

For one night, Streeter McClure, J Madden, Mike Ferrufino, Josh Hanfling, Michael Pollak and Franklin Rios basked in the glory of being “The Most Interesting Men in Denver” as they mixed and mingled with a couple hundred friends who gathered at the Halcyon Hotel in Cherry Creek ready to learn more about preventable threats to men’s health and programs that address them.

McClure has been a bartender, ski instructor and U.S. Senate intern before founding DigitalSafe; he is also the author of “The Single Man’s Guide to Cooking with Beer.” Madden, the owner/managing partner of Pura Vida Fitness & Spa, shared the 2017 Citizen of the Arts award with his wife, Linda Poletti.

Ferrufino is the president/CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Denver Health Foundation board. Hanfling chairs the foundation board and is the cofounder of Sewald Hanfling Public Affairs.

Pollak, the foundation’s immediate past chair, will be honored at Denver Health’s signature fundraiser, NightShine. This black-tie gala will be May 12 at the Hyatt Regency Convention Center and features entertainment by Flo Rida. Rios, the global head/corporate development for MediaMath, and his wife, Jennifer, are among the co-chairs for NightShine.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock also was one of the Most Interesting, but was attending meetings in Washington, D.C., and was thus unable to take part in the cocktail hour gathering that included food, drink, cigars and a brief program emceed by sportscaster Les Shapiro.
