Starry Evening Gala

Saturday, July 9, 2022 at 5:30 pm

We can’t wait to celebrate this year’s Starry Evening Gala with you at the Big Mine Arena in the Town of Crested Butte! The evening will be packed with local entertainment; a delicious dinner paired with great spirits, beer, and wine; a silent and live auction full of once-in-a-lifetime opportunities; and the great company of friends and neighbors who support conservation in the Gunnison Valley. Don your cowgirl boots for a fun-filled evening guaranteed to be highlight of your summer! This year’s dress code is mountain chic as we celebrate and raise money to protect our incredible views, crucial wildlife habitats, outstanding recreational opportunities, and valued ranching heritage.
