Join us for a night of forward-thinking vision and shared community investment into local outdoor recreation and youth organizations!

Far from a boring and stuffy fundraiser, you can expect:

  • A dynamic nightlife experience:
    Enjoy a casual, woods-inspired cocktail party featuring excellent food (grazing tables and heavy hors d'oeuvres included with ticket), drinks (cash bar), and fun
  • Chances to land cool stuff:
    Bid on an exciting and diverse array of live and silent auction items, or take home a prize in our fun heads‑or‑tails raffle
  • Elevation of knowledge:
    Hear from compelling outdoor leaders and keynote speakers, and get the inside scoop on key community projects
  • Mingling with your people:
    Connect and collaborate with like minded individuals, organizations, and businesses working toward a stronger community
  • Your contributions, making an impact:
    Hang out with the knowledge that your ticket, your auction bids, and your attention are helping shape the place we all love

Whether you’re passionate about biking, skiing, hiking, trail running, snowshoeing, paddling, or simply being in the woods – the Trails Gala is your opportunity for a collaborative connection and contribution to the community making it all happen.

Wondering what to wear?

Anything you’d wear to a nice party with friends is just fine! Want to get a little dressed up? Go for it. Want to keep it comfortable and casual? No worries, you’re good to go.

This event isn’t a formal whatsoever. It’s just a chance for the outdoor-loving community to get together to celebrate what we’ve done, and what we yet want to do. It’s about what’s in your head and your heart, not what’s on your body.
