STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Every great fairytale starts with those famous four words, “Once upon a time,” and Yampa Valley Autism Program’s annual masquerade ball fundraiser was another in the long line of stories about people doing wonderful things for others.
More than 400 guest were able to enjoy an evening in their favorite pieces of fancy attire and amazing masks while raising money for the local nonprofit. The event — which took place Saturday, April 6, at the Neas Auditorium at Colorado Mountain College Steamboat Springs — raised more than $100,000 for direct programming services, such as therapy, education, advocacy and support for children and young adults with special needs and autism.
