We are overwhelmed with such positive community support and have sold out of tickets. Please contact Heather Schneider ( if you would like to be placed on a waiting list.

Put on your 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 the Colorado School of Mines’ Lockridge Arena in order to accommodate more guests.

The 1950’s sock-hop themed Gala and Auction will begin at 5pm and will include dinner, a cash bar, an ‘old-school’ Cake Walk Contest, exciting live and silent auctions and a high-energy “After-Party” by the Rockslide band.

Proceeds Benefit…

the Golden Civic Foundation’s Community Grant Program. Through the contributions of many businesses and individuals in our community, more than $5.3 million has been raised over the past 48 years to support charitable organizations, public schools, museums and cultural centers in the greater Golden area. In 2017, this event raised $130,000 that was distributed to the Golden community via 39 grants to local nonprofit organizations.

The proceeds of this year’s event will again benefit our Community Grant Program with a special paddle raise to help kick start fundraising for the Golden High School’s Community Track Renovation project. The new GHS track will provide an asset not only usable for our students, but also to the greater Golden Community. This is a great event that supports a wide array of organizations that serve the Golden community.
