Each year, the COBS community gathers to celebrate our students and our mission through the Black Tie & Tennis Shoes gala. Join us this year on October 24th at Mile High Station in Denver for stories from the field, a silent and live auction, opportunities to directly support scholarship students, and time to catch up with friends – drinks and food not to be missed! Make your mark on the lives of young people in our community and have fun along the way. Contact Anna Bishop at for more information.

Support for the Black Tie & Tennis Shoes gala is not only a great way to participate in and contribute to the community at COBS. It represents an investment in the leaders of tomorrow. It provides youth the opportunity to experience the wilderness for the first time, and grow their character and leadership skills in the process. It represents challenge, adventure and realizing what we are truly capable of. View sponsorship opportunities here.
