DENVER (CBS4) – CBS4’s Jim Benemann and Karen Leigh were honored to take part in the annual Great Thanksgiving Banquet at the Denver Rescue Mission on Wednesday.

Dozens of volunteers served up a turkey feast with all the classic side dishes to about 300 people.

More than 16,000 turkeys were donated to the mission this Thanksgiving. They’ll be served up by the mission and several of its partner charities over the holidays.
