Children's Gala

October 1, 2016

2016 Children's Gala logo

Join us for the annual Children's Gala! Last year, the Children’s Gala brought together community partners, patient families and caregivers for an elegant evening supporting Children's Hospital Colorado, raising more than $2.1 million for patients!

Make a gift to impact the lives of children.


Colorado's own Big Head Todd and the Monsters will be headlining this year's Children's Gala!


Since their formation in the mid-’80s, Big Head Todd and the Monsters have continued to evolve and explore, moving beyond their Colorado club circuit roots to become one of the most respected and durable bands in America.

With hits like "Bittersweet" and "Sister Sweetly," they are sure to satisfy your '90s nostalgia and introduce you to a few new favorites from their latest album, Black Beehive.


Don’t leave the party early, the talented DJ LO will be spinning the hottest tracks to keep you dancing the night away!
