It’s time for the 2015  Women of Vision Gala !

Join your colleagues and friends for our evening of GLITZ and GLAMOUR to honor twelve Women of Visionwho have impacted our lives and our communities!

  • The evening begins at 5:15pm with a champagne reception in the beautiful atrium of the Ft. Collins Hilton Hotel
  • Enjoy a glass of champagne, compliments of the Hilton Hotel. 
  • Greet old friends, make new ones, and enjoy this casual hour of elegance.

At 6:15pm the doors to the Ballroom open and the magical evening begins with the Proclamation designating July 22nd as “WOMEN OF VISION DAY.” 

We set the stage to honor these everyday women, your neighbors and friends…who didn’t say “Someone should do something” but instead said, “I am going to do something!”

The focus of the evening is to honor twelve women of our community who are truly “Women of Vision:” These women have demonstrated visionary approaches in their professional and volunteer endeavors and have made a contribution to the well-being and empowerment of women locally, nationally, and internationally. They have enriched the lives of others with their courage, intelligence, talent and – of course – vision. They inspire us all through their innovation and leadership.
