Dananne Solomon has been volunteering for the Gabby Krause Foundation since its inception in 2004. Gabby’s mom Tammy is a lifelong family friend and the families spent lots of time together playing at the pool, baking or just hanging out. The Krause family holds a very dear place in Dananne’s heart as she was around for Gabby’s diagnosis, treatment, hospital days and stays, good days and not so good days, as well as everything in between. To say that Gabby was a fighter is an understatement; she was so much more than that. She was first and foremost the little girl who taught us all so much; she taught us how to endure, how to smile, how to cry, and how to be inclusive, how to pray, how to become a community who cares and does, and how to overcome and when to give in, but most of all she taught us how powerful play is! She loved her own Bag of Fun and loved to share her toys. Dananne works with the volunteers for this amazing organization as well as planning and executing the fundraising events for Bags of Fun.
Dananne was born and raised in the Denver area. A mother of three daughters, Delaney, Darby and Dailey, Dananne and her husband Andy spend their time at sporting events and activities. Dananne has been a volunteer for many organizations over the years including The Fine Arts Foundation, Haiti Partner’s, The National Charity League and the Junior League of Denver.
