Thank You for Your Support!

We have been so positively overwhelmed with such great support from our community and we are very excited to share our preliminary fundraising numbers. We met our goal and raised over $150,000 that supports our Community Grant Program and the Golden High School’s Community Track Renovation project…A BIG THANKS to our:

  • Sponsors, Donors and Attendees that made this possible!
  • Confluence Companies for being our Title Sponsor, and to the Colorado School of Mines for being our Community Partnership Sponsor.
  • Additionally, we are very appreciative of the Kelley Family/Kelley Trucking, a multi-generation Golden Family and business, that generously provided at $20,000 match to the paddle raise funds. This exemplifies their continued investment into the current and future generations of our Golden community.
  • All of our volunteers who worked tirelessly to throw a great party!

Event Photos

We were thrilled to see so many of our attendees in their finest 1950s flair! Check out (and Like!) the Golden Civic Foundation’s Facebook page for a 100+ 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 #GoldenCivicFoundation 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

Proceeds Benefit…

the Golden Civic Foundation’s Community Grant Program. Through the contributions of many businesses and individuals in our community, more than $6.1 million has been raised over the past 49 years to support charitable organizations, public schools, museums and cultural centers in the greater Golden area.

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.

A Big Thanks to our 2018 Sponsors!
