[slide-left]VENUE & DECOR

Aspen Gala has partnered with 10 of the valley’s best interior designers to transform the Hotel Jerome ballroom into a VIP nightclub experience. You will not find traditional banquet tables at this event! Instead, multiple lounges are installed throughout the room. Expect luxe furnishings and lighting. A dedicated attendant will be stationed at each lounge to take care of guests for the evening. Hightop tables and smaller seated tables are also available toward the center of the room. Every seat in the house is a great one for viewing the 3 live performance stages as well as the digital art installation being projected on the back wall of the venue. Dress for a night out dancing.[/slide-left]


Bridging Bionics Foundation works in service to mobility for its clients. MOVEMENT will be featured in live performances indoors by a contortionist, aerialist and acrobatic duo alternating on 3 stages. Guests can also enjoy a fire dancer on the outside patio. A bionic runway show will allow attendees to view high-tech robotic exoskeletons in action. World-renowned DJ Folami will be on hand all night to guide us on a musical journey that culminates in a dance party from after the live performances and auction have ended.[/fade]


Our gala theme, FUTURE: Humanity X Technology is embodied in an original, animated, digital art installation that will be projected on the back wall of the venue. Local artists and innovators, Tomas Zuccareno and Summers Moore have co-created a visually stunning piece of moving artwork that celebrates the intersection of human desire and instinct with high-tech robotics. Viewers will be riveted by this cutting edge piece of optical storytelling.[/slide-right]

In addition to the featured aspects above, Aspen Gala will be hosting an online silent auction in the weeks leading up to July 13th. There will be a live auction at the Gala featuring just 6 highly curated experiences on which guests may bid. Anyone wishing to donate items to the silent auction may send us an email here.


Thank you for creating lasting footprints in our community with the gift of mobility.
