The annual Giddy Up Gala: A Night of Boots, Bourbon & Beer will take you back to the late 1980s and early 1990s in Golden's Wild West to meet horseman and Hollywood silent film actor Pete Morrison and Golden's tough-as-nails sheriff CP Hoyt.

The Oct. 12 gala and auction will begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail hour and silent auction, followed by dinner, a program and a live auction. The evening will conclude with an after-party with Western entertainment by the Buckstein Band. The evening takes place at the Colorado School of Mines' Lockridge Arena.

Paul Andrews, president and CEO of the National Western Stock Show and a third-generation Golden ranching family descendant, will serve as the evening's emcee. After-after-parties will be hosted in downtown Golden at the Miners Saloon and Ace Hi Tavern.

Tickets cost $125 per person, or $1,150 for a table of 10. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase online starting Sept. 5.

The gala and auction is the primary fundraiser for the Golden Civic Foundation's community grant program. The 2018 auction and gala set records for highest attendance (more than 500) and the most money raised. For the 2018-19 grant cycle, nearly $200,000 in grants were awarded to 40 local nonprofit organizations that make a positive impact on our quality of life in Golden.
