YWCA’s Annual Fundraising Gala “Hear Us Roar: a Speakeasy Soiree”

Join us for our annual fundraising gala on Saturday, March 7th, 2020 at the JCC from 6-11pm. Tickets on sale now!

This year’s theme of “Hear us Roar: a Speakeasy Soiree”  will transport us back to the 1920s as we celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted some women the right to vote, and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which later expanded critical voting rights to people of color and women of color.

The fun-filled 20s-inspired evening for our 230+ guests will include casino games, an exquisite catered dinner, cocktails, live entertainment, a paddle raiser and a live auction.

Our auction and paddle raiser play an important role in our ability to raise funds and meet the growing need for our programs.The mission of the YWCA Boulder County is to protect children, empower women and girls and eliminate racism. For over 98 years YWCA Boulder County has served as a community resource for women, children and families.

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this year’s 2nd annual Dash and Bash on September 29th. We had a blast and thanks to you, we were able to raise over $40k to support our services. We’ll see you next year!

YWCA Dash and Bash was an event to celebrate the powerful mission to empower women and eliminate racism. This year’s event was a huge success with over 300 people registered to participate!

This FUNdraising event brought together our community by encouraging teams of 6+ co-workers, family members, friends, corporations and civic groups to make a powerful statement and provide support to fuel the important work of the YWCA in our community.  A fun 5K and 10K walk or run, this was an event for the competitive, those enjoying a fun, impactful run and even for kids to show their support in a 1-mile dash.

Dancing with Boulder Stars 2019 was a HUGE success! 

THANK YOU to everyone who made the event possible. We had a packed house at the Boulder Theater as our 8 teams brought their best dances to the judges and raised critical funds for our programs. If you missed this year’s event, we hope you’ll join us in 2020!

Based on the hit TV show, this event features local celebrities, business people and community leaders who are partnered with local professional dance instructors. The pairs meet mid-summer and undergo an exhilarating 12-week long rehearsal process, which culminates in a live dance competition at the historic Boulder Theater. Audience members and fans of the pairs “vote” for their favorite by making donations towards YWCA Boulder County. Each pair will compete for the event championship by striving for the highest total in donations (efforts led primarily by the celebrities). These contributions support essential services in our community, such as emergency drop-in child care, youth empowerment programs, and racial equity programs.
