Black Diamond Ball - Vail Valley Foundation

Black Diamond Ball

Thursday, February 11, 2021
Virtual Event

Historically, the Black Diamond Ball is the most dynamic and entertaining evening of the season. The event is the signature fundraiser for the Vail Valley Foundation and festivities include a presentation of the Vail Valley Citizen of the Year Award, an award given annually since 1981 in recognition of outstanding commitment to our community. 

While we will miss gathering in person this year, the ability to support the Vail Valley Foundation from the comfort of your own home, in your own style is an opportunity not to be missed. We hope you will join us for the 2021 Virtual Black Diamond Ball.

The 2021 Black Diamond Ball will be a completely virtual event.

Support the Vail Valley Foundation virtually through a Fund-A-Need!

The Vail Valley Foundation’s Black Diamond Ball would not be possible without sponsors.
