Zunesis is excited to announce Saturday, November 12, 2016, as the date for their fifth annual Night of Miracles. The Night of Miracles is an evening to celebrate having raised the funds to build a Habitat for Humanity home for a hard-working family in Denver, and it has become an annual tradition at Zunesis. The event, which will be held at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, will feature Zunesis’ 2016 Habitat partner family, who will receive the keys to their new home during the event. To keynote the event, Zunesis is bringing back international speaker and 9-time New York Times bestselling author, Don Yeager.
For nearly a decade, Zunesis has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver in numerous ways, from donating time at corporate build days on Habitat construction sites, to financial donations, to spearheading their own fundraising efforts. The last of these was the original idea behind the Night of Miracles. Zunesis wanted to do more than support Habitat for Humanity on their own; they wanted to provide an avenue for their valued business partners to join them in giving back to the community.
“At Zunesis, we believe that we’re all stronger when we work together. That’s why we wanted to create a way for those who partner with us in business to also partner with us in making a positive impact on our community,” said Zunesis CEO, Steve Shaffer. Over the years, the Night of Miracles has become an event where multiple businesses work together to achieve one goal: raising enough money to build a home for a family in their community.
The evening itself will be a black tie event consisting of cocktails and dinner. Guests will enjoy access to select museum exhibits as well as an inspiring keynote. Most importantly, they will witness just how impactful their donations are as a family’s life is changed forever when they receive the keys to their new home.

Check out this video recap of the day:
The Bedrock Foundation and Zunesis invite you to join us for the fourth annual Night of Miracles. We hope to raise all of the money needed to build a home in our community in a single evening! Please help us achieve our goal and join us for an evening of camaraderie and entertainment.
The founding members of Zunesis believed that “together, we could accomplish great things”, and that is exactly what Zunesis has been doing for Habitat for Humanity over the past seven years. Zunesis has donated over $314,000 in support of eight Habitat homes since 2008, and has contributed over 1300 volunteer hours.
In 2012, Zunesis sponsored a home for Haider, Muntaha and their two children. Before Haider and Muntaha came across Habitat for Humanity, they struggled to find safe housing for their children. They were living in a dangerous neighborhood filled with crime. Also, their apartment did not provide adequate heat during the winter, and their whole family suffered through the cold. With the help of Zunesis’ home sponsorship, Haider and Muntaha were finally given the chance to provide a safe and comfortable home for their family. They are very grateful to Zunesis for giving them a chance of a lifetime to achieve their dream of homeownership. Zunesis’ 2015 sponsored home will be completed in November 2015.
In addition to contributing time and money towards Habitat homes, Zunesis also sponsors one of our annual philanthropic events, “The Night of Miracles.” This event is used to celebrate the mission of Habitat and create awareness in the community. Zunesis CEO Steve Shaffer, who sits on the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, has seen firsthand how Habitat homeownership opportunities uplift families and help them succeed.
Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver was established in 1979 by a group of passionate volunteers. These volunteers worked tirelessly to fund raise, acquire land, select families and manage all of the logistics to build the first Habitat homes in Denver.
Since then, Habitat Metro Denver has become one of the largest affiliates in the U.S., celebrating the construction of our 500th home in 2012.
Today Habitat for Humanity has completed more than 600,000 homes around the world, completing the construction or repair of a home at the rate of every 5.5 minutes.
