40th Anniversary Children's Gala

September 23, 2017

Children's Gala 40th Anniversary

Through generous community support, more than $2.4 million was raised for Children’s Hospital Colorado, which will help to transform the lives of the children and families we serve. Thank you for your generosity and continued support of Children's Colorado! We hope to see you at next year's Children's Gala on September 29, 2018.

Check out the Letters from the Heart video that debuted at the Gala to see the journey our ambassador families have been on together.

Event photos and Step & Repeat photos are available for you to view and purchase. If you forgot to pick up your auction item or event photo, please contact Leslie Boersma.

As a special offer, our auction partner Cuvée will donate 10% of any trip booked by Children's Gala guests back to Children’s Colorado!
