Star Spangled Gala Celebrates Veterans with the Denver Dolls

Tickets are now on sale for the annual Healing Warriors Program Star Spangled Gala on October 8th at the Downtown Denver Aquarium. The annual Star Spangled Gala celebrating Veterans and supporting Healing Warriors Program free non-narcotic clinics for Veterans and their families, has grown each year attracting guests from all along the Colorado front range. The Star Spangled Gala will feature a VIP visit and a professional photo opportunity with the Aquarium’s Animal Ambassadors, a live and silent auction, gourmet cuisine, wine pairing, elegant signature cocktail, and special jewelry gift bags for each guest provided by our sponsor. All proceeds from the event will bring vital funds and support to Healing Warriors Program 4 pillars programming for suicide prevention and service delivery. Master of Ceremonies, Ken Clark from Colorado’s Own Channel 2, will begin our evening with entertainment from the Denver Dolls, and then kick up the pace and excitement with the famous Healing Warriors Program pie auction!

“We are seeing an escalation in anger, anxiety, suicide ideation and sleep disturbance issues in our community. At a time when our service members are enduring the sustained impacts of pain and post-traumatic stress, we need to increase access to care,” said Healing Warriors Program Executive Director, Ana Yelen, “our annual Star Spangled Gala provides critical programming resources so that we can deliver much-needed services.”

For more information about our services, please contact our clinic at 970-776-VETS.
