Dinner, dancing and the Stars of the Credit Union Awards show will happen on Friday, September 27 in an exciting new location – The Vehicle Vault, in Parker, Colorado. This year’s event will be catered by the award-winning Biscuits and Berries Catering Company, emceed by nationally acclaimed comedian and magician Denny Corby,and feature incredible live music from HomeSlice.
Last year’s Gala began a new pattern for the Annual Star Gala, when we decided to switch back and forth between Arizona and Colorado locations. Since the 2018 Gala was held in Arizona, we are back to Colorado for the 2019 event. In 2020, we’ll be back in Arizona, at the stunning Chateau Luxe.
Here’s a bit more about what you can expect at the 2019 Star Gala!
The Venue – The Vehicle Vault
The Vehicle Vault is not your average car museum. It’s a beautiful building that houses an incredible private collection of rare and exotic automobiles from around the world. Gala guests can expect to see cars from every era, from some of the earliest cars ever manufactured to a DeLorean, a 1.2 million-dollar Mercedes, race cars, and many other rare and exotic automobiles.
“Having the Gala at The Vehicle Vault is going to be an incredible, fun experience! The space is large and beautiful and will be entertaining for car aficionadosand those who know very little about all the different kinds of cars that have been manufactured over the years. They have something for everyone!” – Diana Adell, Director of Events, MWCUA
The Food – Catering by Biscuits and Berries
For those of you who have attended previous Gala events in Colorado, you know that the food will be incredible. Biscuits and Berries has catered previous Gala dinners and they always do an incredible job.
This year, dessert will not only be delicious, but an event unto itself. The Biscuits and Berries pastry chefs will use pastry to create an artistic landscape right before our eyes. While we watch, the pastry chefs will use a variety of pastries, dessert sauces, candies, and other confections to create an edible work of art. It will be fun, entertaining, and delicious!
The Music – HomeSlice
HomeSlice is a high energy nine-piece band with an impressive horn section and powerful vocals. The band has experience, talent, professionalism, an extremely diversified song list, and a personable, entertaining nature that’s been entertaining Gala guests for the last few years. We know that this year will be no exception.
If you want to see HomeSlice in action, they have a great live video on the homepage of their website.
The Emcee – Denny Corby
Denny Corby is a nationally acclaimed magician, entertainer and keynote speaker. He has performed for an array of clients including Comcast, Tyson Foods, Berkshire Hathaway, and BMW, entertaining crowds of 20 to 2500, and everything in between.
Denny has appeared on major cable networks like Fox and NBC and created an instructional DVD that shows people how to use some of his favorite tricks to impress their friends, family, coworkers, and even strangers.
We are excited to have Denny emcee this year’s gala because he is the perfect mix of professional and entertaining, guaranteed to make every guest smile and laugh.
