If anything, 2020 taught us all how to make the best of things. As such, we implemented a virtual option for our event. Virtual attendees receive a wine and chocolate bundle and access to the livestreamed portion of our event and can also participate in the Champagne Toast and Balloon Pop minigames! Check out our ticketing website (or call our office at 719.475.7815) for more information.

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.

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.

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.
