Put on those blue suede shoes and get ready to Rock-Around-the-Clock for our 43rd Annual Gala and Auction on Saturday, October 20 at the Colorado School of Mines’ Lockridge Arena! Don’t miss out on “THE” social event of the year for members of the Golden community who love our town. After being held at the Denver West Marriott for more than 30 years, the event has moved to CSM’s Lockridge Arena in order to accommodate more guests. The sock-hop themed Gala and Auction will begin at 5pm and will include dinner, a cash bar, exciting live and silent auctions and high-energy musical entertainment by the Rockslide high-energy dance band. This event is the primary fundraiser for the Golden Civic Foundation’s Community Grant Program and more than $5.3 million that has been raised over the past 48 years has been reinvested back into the Golden community to support charitable organizations, public schools, museums and cultural centers in the greater Golden area.
Tickets go on sale mid-September!
