On May 21, hundreds of Denver community members will gather at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Denver in the organization’s first annual gala in two years.

DENVER – Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver (BGCMD) is delighted to announce the 2022 Gala, Great Stories Start Here, presented by Suncor. After pausing the in-person Gala over the last two years due to COVID-19, the organization will joyfully reunite with donors and supporters in celebration of the BGCMD mission at an exclusive event on May 21.

The 2022 Gala provides an opportunity for attendees to step into the inspiring stories of Denver’s kids while supporting their bright and limitless futures. Connection will be cultivated through sharing stories of Club members, honoring Youth of the Year winners, and through remarks from CEO Erin Porteous. The evening will be complete with an interactive cocktail hour, an elegant chef-designed dinner, and a silent auction.

Porteous said, “We are counting the days until we can connect with our incredible supporters, staff, and Club members at our Gala, which is our signature annual event. Together, with community members from across our city, we will celebrate all of the great stories that start in our Clubs.”

This special event is made possible by presenting sponsor Suncor. Suncor has invested more than $3.2 million in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver mission over the past 15 years, providing Club members with a safe, supportive, fun and enriching environment that inspires and empowers them to achieve their greatest potential.

Suncor’s commitment to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver ensures that thousands of children have the opportunity to develop a strong sense of community and belonging; where they become leaders; where they learn to excel in academics. With Suncor’s flagship support, on May 21 the Denver community will come together to celebrate the incredible stories of Denver’s kids and play a collective role in supporting the bright future of our city.

Supporters can learn more about the event and participate in the silent auction, regardless of event attendance, here:
