30th AnniversaryLuncheon

Our goal: $80,000

Come join us as we celebrate 30 years of serving youth in our community! The annual Forge Evolution luncheon offers a chance to reflect on our past success and discuss our goals for the future, as well as educate those who may not know about our mission and vision (all while enjoying a complimentary meal in a great atmosphere).

The Forge Evolution program targets youth involved in early trauma or at-risk behaviors like abandonment of a parent, poverty, neglect, abuse, academic struggles, etc., with an understanding these incidents can occur at any point in a youth or child’s life. Prior to the establishment of Forge Evolution, the Teen Court programming delivered this in the “response” or “transition” stage, after a crime occurred. These provisions of legal services and alternative to the traditional court system will continue, but the new programming opens new pathways. We started a FREE weekly drop in program for youth in our community offering various topics each week. Some of our partners are The Space Foundation, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Bemis Art School etc. It is a safe space for them and we make sure they have dinner before going home.

We will continue to offer our Teen Court program, helping kids aged 10-19 overcome misdemeanor offenses that landed them in the judicial system.  

If you’re interested in attending, please sign up! You can also be a table captain and fill a table for your friends and co-workers to learn about our program as well.

– A participant in the Forge Program 


Yes. Unfortunately, as much as we love our youth, this event only is for adults over the age of 21. The funds raised will still be applied to our programming and go towards better serving our youth program participants using comprehensive and inclusive approaches.

We have people from all over our Colorado Springs community who attend this event; so, dress as you like! We just ask that we keep our wardrobes appropriate.

Yup, yup, yup! We know our ticket-registration asks a lot of questions about contact information; that is so that we are able to send you a receipt for your contribution. 

Undoubtedly! Heavy hor d’oeuvres are available for all attendees to enjoy, so feel free to bring your appetite! 

Forge Evolution encourages all attendees to drink responsibly. Our fun event is only fun if all attendees get to and from the event safely. Feel free to ask a staff member to borrow their phone so that you may arrange a ride when you are ready to depart.
