HRC Colorado Gala

The evening of May 21st will include a lavish cocktail reception complete with local artist and musicians, silent auction, with items ranging from high-end art to travel packages, along with a delectable dinner and inspirational program designed by the HRC Colorado Steering Committee. Featured speakers include President of HRC, Joe Solmonese and comedian Alec Mapa. Judy Shepard will present the two Youth Awards for the evening. The gala will conclude with an exclusive after party where you can dance the night away in celebration of the fight for equality.

Gala Co-Chairs, Alex Lindquist & Hank Provost encourage you to purchase your tickets early as previous Gala’s have sold out well in advance. Tickets can be purchased here. Early Bird tickets are $165 before April 1st, and $175 thereafter. The Grand Hyatt, Denver, has extended discounted accommodations to those attending the Mile High Gala and can be arranged upon booking.
