What to Expect During the Live Gala

We've been hard at work planning a night to remember! We're committed to making the most of our time and yours, so we're limiting the Gala to under an hour... but we've PACKED that hour with great information, special messages, entertainment, and of course opportunities to support your MS Center. We'll get started promptly at 6 p.m., and the evening will feature:

  • Welcome from our emcee, Ed Greene 
  • Special messages from RMMSC Board Chair David Geonetta and RMMSC Medical Director Dr. Timothy Vollmer
  • Exclusive performances from Denver jazz artist Dave Camp
  • Silent Auction highlights and updates
  • Cocktail demonstration from our friends at Total Beverage
  • Special guest messages throughout the evening 
  • "What's Your Why?" social media images and posts, shown in near-real time during the broadcast
  • "Mission Call" -- your chance to make an impact!

Get Your Gala Party Pack

We want your at-home experience to be as "real" as possible, so we've put together Party Packs for you to help get in the Gala mood! Each pack will come with a number of items, including:

  • Restaurant list for Gala meals
  • Recipe for our official Gala cocktail
  • Cocktail napkins from our cocktail sponsor, Ireland Stapleton
  • "What's Your Why?" sign, for social media pics (Click here to get yours now!)
  • Decorations, including balloons and confetti
  • $25-off meal card from Fleming's

One special item in your pack is a "What's Your Why" sign. We hope you'll show your support for the Gala by writing one or two sentences about why you support the RMMSC, and then take a snapshot to post on social media. Don't forget to tag the Rocky Mountain MS Center and hashtag #MSCenterGala so we can share your photos during the live Gala broadcast!

We hope these party packs bring the feel of an in-person Gala into your home!

Party Packs are available FREE of charge, thanks to a generous Gift Sponsorship from our friends at FirstBank. To place your Party Pack order, please email Sarah Kyger at skyger@mscenter.org before August 31, 2020.
