What is the Masquerade Ball?

This is Yampa Valley Autism’s biggest fundraiser of the year. It’s a night to celebrate the stars of Yampa Valley Autism—our kids and programs. The event theme changes every year but it always happens the first Saturday of April to kick off Autism Acceptance Month.

Mark you calendars now for 2025

Masquerade Ball has it all – dinner, a live band you’ll want to dance to, and a spirited auction including a mouth-watering dessert auction. Beer and wine are included (as well as non-alcoholic beer and sodas).

What does this fundraiser support?

All proceeds from this event help LOCAL kids and families. Your support allows Yampa Valley Autism to fulfill our mission to provide direct services and resources to cultivate abilities and maximize quality of life for individuals aged 2-21 and families living with autism, ADHD, or other developmental disabilities.
