CoAND's First Annual Fundraising Gala

Let’s celebrate!

Join us for an unforgettable evening at the inaugural fundraising gala hosted by the Colorado Association of Naturopathic Doctors! As champions of naturopathic medicine in Colorado, we’re excited to gather our community for an evening of celebration and support. This gala isn’t just about glitz and glamour; it’s about honoring the incredible achievements of our doctors and allies over the past year. It’s a chance to come together, strengthen connections, and recognize those who have made significant contributions to our cause. But it’s also about looking to the future. With your support, we can continue our vital work in legislative advancement, enhance member benefits, and increase community outreach. Together, let’s pave the way for a healthier, more vibrant Colorado. We can’t wait to make a difference with you over food, fundraising, and frivolity at our first annual gala!
