This year’s Gala for Wellness, A Blue Star Night, will be a formal/black-tie evening affair with lots of fun to be had! In addition to a gourmet plated meal and just-for-fun gambling, we will have a live band, Great Family Reunion, to keep you on the dance floor all night long. There will be a chance to win 10 vacations and a brand-new Subaru, generously sponsored by Subaru of Loveland. Our program is proud to feature Sal Giunta, First Living Medal of Honor Recipient since the Vietnam War, who has an amazing story to share. Click for our Facebook event »
