2018 Mardi Gras Ball

Event Details

The Annual COGA Mardi Gras Ball is the signature event of the association, benefiting the local Colorado non-profit, Tennyson Center for Children. In its inaugural year this function sold out in its early days and raised $100,000 for Children’s Hospital Colorado. Focused on positive community impacts, the ball welcomes you to step into a new world of beads, brass bands, and king cake. Join us to be inspired by the goodwill of the oil and gas industry and to celebrate those who have best represented the core values of the industry and given the most across our state. The Krewe of COGA offers you a memorable night of dinner, dancing, live music, auction prizes, and a hosted bar.

Tennyson Center for Children is dedicated to helping children who have experienced severe abuse, neglect, and/or trauma so they can bravely, and safely, change their life’s story.  We are building a community of game changers who, working together, will fundamentally change the child welfare system and how kids navigate through it. For the past 112 years, TCC’s trained professionals have empowered generations of children and families by providing a child-centered, customized approach to healing through our community-based, school, and residential programs. The primary goal of all TCC programs is to reintegrate our children back into safe families, supportive schools and vibrant communities. COGA hopes to foster a long-term partnership with the Tennyson Center for Children.

All proceeds from ticket, table, auction, sponsorship, and other event related sales will go directly to support the exceptional work of the Tennyson Center for Children. This year’s program will be emceed by former Bronco Reggie Rivers.
