We hope you will join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary year of the Black Diamond Ball, a fundraiser to support the Vail Valley Foundation’s mission to enhance the quality of life in the Vail Valley and showcase our community to a global audience through arts, athletics and education.
Don’t miss the train for one of the most entertaining – and important – evenings on the calendar, the 20th Anniversary Black Diamond Ball! This year’s theme, ‘An Evening on the Orient Express’, will transport you to the golden age of rail travel, the 1920s and 1930s – thematic attire is encouraged! Over the course of the evening, you will indulge in four eclectic food stations with tastings from around the globe, have a chance to bid on incredible live and silent auction items, and blow off some steam on the dance floor with special entertainment!
In addition, we will also honor Betsy and George Wiegers, our 2019 Vail Valley Citizens of the Year!
