Since 1954, Junior Achievement of Southern Colorado has been preparing young people for financial success in an ever-changing global economy.

To move that mission forward, 375 sponsors and supporters gathered at Cheyenne Mountain Resort for the 25th annual fundraiser, a Red Carpet & Silver Screen Gala and Auction. More than $151,000 was raised and, said Executive Director Carrie McKee, to help "bring financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness to our young people." Programs reached 16,554 students in 2016-17, with more than 600 volunteers from the business world.

JA galas are well known for exciting silent auctions, and this one didn't disappoint, with an item list filling several pages. Honored as he finished his term as board chair was Ted Mossman of Colorado Business Bank, and JA volunteer honors went to David Zirkle.
