Touted as the “funnest event of the year,” the Citizen Soldier Connection Gala is commemorating its 12th consecutive year of celebrating military veterans and their families with a gala and both a silent and live auction. This year’s event will be serenaded by the talents of the Colorado Springs Conservatory as you settle into the evening while enjoying a reception and a time of reconnecting with long-time friends and colleagues.
Matt Meister, Chief Meteorologist FOX21 News/ FOX 21 Storm Team, will bring the energy and connection to make the evening a memorable one. At the same time, your taste buds are tantalized by gourmet appetizers and desserts prepared by the Broadmoor’s world-renowned chefs. If you wish to participate in beverages throughout the night, please bring a credit card or cash to enjoy your favorite drink from the bar.
You will be introduced to business owners during a live auction event as they describe their donations, services, and wares. It will be a great time to forge new friendships with like-minded people, passionate about supporting our local military men and women.
When the lights go down, the music comes up as husband-and-wife DJ team, Kirk and Tamara Moore, provide us with a music set that is guaranteed to get your feet moving on the dance floor.
We are excited to announce a NEW date for 2021! Shifting the Gala to May allows us to open more capacity for an in-person experience. We will follow all COVID-19 mandates for El Paso County and adjust accordingly.
