You are invited to be part of our 2018 Annual Gala!


Thursday, October 11, 2018

Hyatt Regency Denver
Colorado Convention Center

Each year, the highlight of our Annual Gala is the DSF Scholar & Alumni Procession, and we need YOU, to make that happen!

This year we will have a DSF Scholar & Alumni Gala Kickoff before the Annual Gala begins for participants to learn and practice networking skills. Our Annual Gala is a great opportunity to network with influential members in our community and we want to provide you the tools for successful connections during the reception and dinner portion of the event.

The DSF Scholar & Alumni Gala Kickoff will start at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 11th. Below is a basic schedule of Scholar/Alumni involvement for the evening.

4:00 PM – Welcome
4:30 PM – Scholar Procession rehearsal
4:45 PM – Networking Session and Heavy Snacks (mac ‘n cheese bar)
5:30 PM – Reception – Network with Guests
6:15 PM – Line up for Scholar Procession
6:45 PM – Scholar Procession!
6:50 PM – Dinner
8:00 PM – Program concludes


Each Scholar or Alumni will be seated with guests/sponsors at the event. DSF will provide each attendee with a code for a free Uber ride, or cover the cost of parking at the hotel. The dress code for the evening is Business Attire.

All funds raised at the Annual Gala will support scholarships for more students like you!
