On Saturday September 17th, hundreds of our friends and community partners will join us at the EXDO Events Center to celebrate our 30th anniversary! This year's celebration will insist on connectedness by bringing Helping Hands Around the Table. Join us as we look back at the various sites we once called home--from the one-room store front on Santa Fe where The Gathering Place was founded, to the brick-and-mortar establishment we’ve grown into. Farm-to-table style catering by Relish Catering Company will highlight Colorado flavor, with wildflowers and pearls symbolizing 30 years of community service. 

Our celebration also seeks to raise awareness regarding transportation in our community. Public transit hikes have made daily life for thousands even more challenging. By bidding on a new Harley Davidson at our event, you can empower our members and provide the tools to help them freely chase down their dreams. 

Note: auction purchases are subject to Colorado sales taxes,which will be added to the final bid amount at the end of the night at check out. 

Are you or your firm interested in supporting our event as a Gala Sponsor? We also have unique business sponsorship opportunities. Please contact our Events Manager, Juliette, at (303) 996-9043 or via email at
