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 Vail Valley Foundation’s Black Diamond Ball would not be possible without sponsors.
Sponsors of the Black Diamond Ball receive the opportunity to create more visibility for their brand in front of a large and influential audience while also creating more goodwill in the community. Shifting to a virtual event for 2021 allows for more opportunities for the Vail Valley Foundation to promote your business across print, press, and multiple social media outlets.
We are willing to work with you to customize a package that will be most valuable to your business.
Sponsorship is available at the available levels:
Presenting | $50,000
Platinum | $25,000
Diamond | $15,000
Gold | $10,000
Silver | $5,000
Bronze | $2,500
