The Brown Palace Hotel has a three-panel window at the corner of 17th and Tremont. We could have used it to put up a retail message. Instead, we filled it with teddy bears and held a citywide contest with a mobile entry to guess how many bears were in that window. The closest guess received a weekend at The Brown Palace. Even better, they got to choose which children's charity received the bears. Hundreds of kids at a Denver shelter got a surprise gift on Christmas Day. And the Brown proved again why it is a special part of the fabric of the Mile High City.
