Noel Cunningham

Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2007

An unwavering supporter of conventions, travel and tourism, Noel has used his success in the restaurant industry to work as one of the Mile High City’s greatest philanthropists and humanitarians. Born in Dublin, Ireland, he became the youngest-ever sous chef in London’s famous Savoy Hotel. In the mid-1970s he moved stateside and in 1986, he opened the popular Denver restaurant Strings. Some of the many projects Noel has started include Quarters for Kids, which began 14 years ago to teach children about local hunger and homeless issues and has raised more than $500,000. With his wife Tammy, Noel founded the Cunningham Foundation in 2003 and has made numerous trips to Africa to assist with self-help programs and community development in Ethiopia.
