Annual Art Gala

Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success has their Annual Art Gala fundraiser each fall as a celebration and as our largest fundraising event of the year. Local Artists’ Silent Auction, Giving Tree donations, Children’s Art sales, and the chance to win some incredible prizes 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 excited to host this event at SkyView for the first time. Mark your calendar for December 5, 5-8pm!


EVICS is seeking volunteers for planning and for the night of the event. Do you have ideas for a children’s art piece? EVICS would love to collaborate with local artists to create one of a kind art pieces with children! Also accepting adult art pieces for the popular Silent Auction. Artists willing to donate art are encouraged to contact Rosemary Truman at or call 970-586-3055.


Call for Local Artwork Donations

We love to feature local artists and are grateful for your donation!  Artists are encouraged to submit pieces that reflect this year’s theme of Winter Wonderland, or other varieties of unique art.  The Art Gala encourages adults to view life through the eyes of a child and we encourage the same for artists. 
Your donation is tax deductible.  Please complete the Professional Art Donation Waiver Form with your submission (titled Professional Art Donation).  We will be happy to provide a donation receipt for your records.
