Rainbow Elders of Boulder County

December 2017 | Rainbow Elders Newsletter



More than 200 fabulous community members gathered together last Sunday at Nissi's Bistro in Lafayette for the 17th Annual Lavender Gala and wow, was it FUN!

With Mrs. Eda Bagel as emcee and Susie Pringle (of the Dancin' Divas) leading the crowd in dance and Ostevetto providing a delightful backdrop of jazz, this yearly event held many special moments.

Door prizes ranging from gift boxes of wine with gourmet treats to free acupuncture sessions from to an amazing car emergency kit, attendees were delighted to take home a variety of lovely gifts.

Special thanks to the BCAAA staff who volunteered, our Rainbow Elders sponsors (the Aging Services Foundation, the Jared Polis Foundation, the Open Door Fund, the Daily Camera, and the Dave Ensign Charitable Foundation), and our loyal list of door prize donors (Martin Law Office, Ellen Orleans, Senior Blue Book, Tammie's Gluten Free Bakery, Out Boulder County, Jodi Ansell, Sandy Hollingsworth, the Louisville Seniors Loving Stitches, Fort Collins CommUNITY Acupunture, Always Best Care, Balfour Cherrywood Village, and Maria's Place).

For those of you who would like to access your "photo booth" pictures, please email Beit

THANK YOU for a fun, fabulous time and we will SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
