The Gala is Colorado TU’s biggest fundraising event of the year and the largest fishing-oriented auction in Colorado. Over 350 guests attended in 2016 and helped raise over $60,000 for Colorado’s rivers.
The funds raised will go towards CTU’s work in youth education, protecting stream flows and temperature across the state, reintroducing and protecting native fish, and preserving and restoring fisheries and their watersheds.
One of Pikes Peak Chapter of TU’s favorite aspects of this grand gala event is the “Cookbook” that will contain the recipes for favorite “folk fly” patterns as tied by local fly tyers.
We will be honoring the Colorado Water Conservation Board for their work in developing Colorado’s first ever state water plan. This plan will guide water decisions made in the state and lead water conserving initiatives.
We want to thank Denver Water for being this year’s River Champion title sponsor at the event!
Prizes will be available ranging from fishing trips, fishing gear, nights out on the town, art, and much more! There will even be great trips around the state and even a trip to fish in Argentina!
