A Gala & Celebration

July 10, 2021 from 6:00-9:00 pm

Join us Saturday, July 10, for an evening of incredible scenery, delicious food, and mingling with friends who support conservation in the Gunnison Valley. Bring your cowgirl boots and your big belt buckles, this year’s event comes with a theme! COVID has kept us all inside for too long, so we’re going big, bold and western.

At six o’clock, the festivities will kick off with cocktails, live music by Floodgate Operators, and a silent auction. After dinner, Auctioneer Adam Kevil will lead us through a rip roaring live auction to raise money for land conservancy. We will also play a game of heads or tails ($10 at the door per ticket, 6 for $50, or a baker’s dozen for $100) to win a townie bike donated by Big Al’s Bicycle Heaven.

Michael Marsee of Hogwood Barbecue will prepare a fabulous barbeque to match our big western theme, and Montanya Rum, Buckel Wine, and Irwin Brewing will supply our libations. Let’s get together to celebrate conservation and local flavor!
