Giddy Up Gala: A Night of Boots, Bourbon and Beer – Saturday, October 12, 2019
TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT!
Please email us at Director@GoldenCivicFoundation.org if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.
For many “Goldenites,” this is THE social event of the year, where locals come together to support their town. Funds raised from the event benefit the Golden Civic Foundation’s Community Grant Program.
This year’s “Giddy Up Gala: A Night of Boots, Bourbon and Beer” will celebrate Golden’s vintage Western history including many of Golden’s most colorful characters from the late 1800’s. The event will be emcee’d by Paul Andrews, the President & CEO of the National Western Stock Show and a third-generation Golden ranching family descendant.
The Giddy Up Gala will begin at 5pm at the Colorado School of Mines Lockridge Arena. Guests are encouraged to don their best Western wear for a rip-roaring evening of fun including State 38 handcrafted bourbon and gin-based cocktails, Coors Brewing Co./AC Golden beer tastings, a four-course dinner and exciting live and silent auctions. High-energy entertainment will be provided by champion trick roper, “Cowboy Craig Ingram,” Ragtime pianist Randy Johnson, Golden’s Heritage Square Music Hall pianist for more than 30 years, and, the bass-baritone powerhouse, Matt Buckstein (of American Idol fame), and his Buckstein Band, aim to fill the dance floor with their boot-scootin’ after-party sound.
Over the past 44 years, the Golden Civic Foundation has raised more than $6.1 million in proceeds from this annual event that has been invested back into the Golden community via a Community Grant program that supports local charitable organizations, public schools, museums and cultural centers.
Tickets to the Giddy Up Gala, are $125/each or a table of 10 for $1,150. Tickets for the event have sold out the past three years, so buyers are advised to buy their tickets early!
