The Hangar at The Stanley Marketplace

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we invite you to join us for Colorado Mountain Club’s Inaugural Benefit Gala.


This extraordinary event will feature a keynote address by world renowned adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, a seated dinner, silent and live auctions, mountaineering achievement awards, and a program designed to entertain and inspire.


The evening will reflect the vibrancy, comradery, and generosity of the outdoor community and beyond as we raise funds vital to CMC’s Youth & Adult Education Programs.
