Dancing with Boulder Stars 2019

YWCA Boulder County is excited to invite you to join our favorite event of the year, Dancing with Boulder Stars! 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.

Don’t miss the event on Wednesday, November 6 at the Boulder Theater! To see who is competing this year, buy tickets and vote go to:


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.

YWCA Boulder County hosted our annual fundraising gala on Saturday, March 9th, 2019 at the JCC. This year’s theme of “Viva Las Vegas”  provided a fun-filled, Vegas-inspired evening for our 230+ guests, along with casino games, an exquisite catered dinner, cocktails, live entertainment, and both a live and silent auction.

Our auctions 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 95 years YWCA Boulder County has served as a community resource for women, children and families.

Thanks to you we were able to raise over $160,000 to support our work in the community, far exceeding our fundraising goal for the evening. We are so grateful!
