Playworks Colorado is hosting our 4th Annual Soiree for Play to celebrate, learn, connect, and raise money for Playworks. The event transports guests from the dinner table to the playground, bringing out the playful side in all of us. Dressed in cocktail attire and sneakers, guests will engage in games, bid on fun silent and live auction items, and enjoy dinner and drinks while learning first-hand how play works.

There are sponsorship opportunities available to companies that would like to support Playworks through our event.

Why join us at our soiree? To come together in a semi-formal setting to support safe and healthy play in elementary schools across Colorado. Together we can help kids feel safe, be active, and learn valuable life skills through the power of play. It is important that we continue to push this work forward together.

Information about the evening will be posted as the event approaches.
