We continued its 42-year tradition of being “THE” philanthropic event of Golden and partied like it was 1929 at the Golden Civic Foundation’s Gala and Auction on November 11, 2017! We have been so positively overwhelmed with such great support from our community and appreciate all of the sponsors, volunteers, donors and attendees that made the “Gloomchasers Speakeasy: A Night of Gin and Jazz” possible!  

Event Photos

We were thrilled to see so many of our attendees in their finest 1920s fare! Check out (and Like!) the Golden Civic Foundation’s Facebook page for some fun photos of the evening. If you have photos that you’d like to share with us on social media, please #hash-tagged them as either #GoldenCivicFoundation or #GloomchasersSpeakEasy to make it easier for us to find the photos and follow the discussions about the event…or also feel free to email them to us at contactus@GoldenCivicFoundation.org.  

See you in 2018!

Support the Cause!

This event is the primary fundraiser for the Golden Civic Foundation’s grant program. Through the contributions of many businesses and individuals in our community, the Golden Civic Foundation has provided more than $5.2 million over the past 45 years to support charitable organizations, public schools, museums and cultural centers in the greater Golden area. In 2016, we raised $100,000 that was distributed to the Golden community via 40 grants to local nonprofit organization. We are currently interviewing Golden nonprofit organizations in our 2017/2018 grant cycle and will update you in early 2018.
