Boys & Girls Clubs of Chaffee County are hosting a new countywide event on Tuesday, Sept. 28, at 5:30 p.m. at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort: the Great Futures Gala. This event replaces the Salida Club’s Casino Night and Buena Vista Club’s Boots and Bolos fundraisers of past years.

The Gala features a buffet dinner and cash bar and a live auction emceed by Jim Wilson. Artist Joshua Been will offer a demonstration of his impressionistic realism style as he creates a new painting to be auctioned off at the event.

Two Club heroes–Sandy Boyd and Oren Dreeben–will be honored for their exceptional service and dedication to the Club’s mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, productive and responsible citizens.

Mind reader Sean Bott rounds out the evening’s entertainment and underscores the futuristic theme. Futuristic dress is encouraged.
Space for the Great Futures Gala is limited. Tickets are $50 and may be purchased at To protect the health of our community, this is a self-attested COVID-19 vaccinated-only event.
