Annual Art Gala

ar gala header

Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success has their Annual Art Gala fundraiser each November as a celebration and as our largest fundraising event of the year. Local Artists’ Silent Auction, Giving Tree donations, Children’s Art sales, and live musical entertainment make this EVICS’ largest fundraising event of the year. Proceeds from the EVICS Art Gala support services and programs for families and young children, scholarships for childcare and preschool, and support for Estes Valley childcare providers.

The free, adult-only event is semi-mountain formal and features local beer and wine, as well as catered heavy hors d’oeuvres.

We are honored to host this event at Trout Haven Lodge for the third time. Mark your calendar for November 9, 5-8pm!
