2015 Black Diamond Ball

The Black Diamond Ball sold out again in 2015!  

The 17th Annual Black Diamond Ball was a huge success and we couldn't have done it without the generous support of our Sponsors, Donors, Volunteers and Community.  We raised over $500,000 which will directly impact our initiative in bringing world class opportunities and experiences in the areas of Arts, Athletics, and Education to the Vail Valley. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you next year!

Please email Taylre Derby at tderby@vvf.org if you would like to receive information about the 18th Annual Black Diamond Ball.   


The Black Diamond Ball’s proceeds benefit the Foundation’s initiatives in arts, athletics and education, by enhancing and sustaining the quality of life in our mountain community. We hope you will join us in making a difference in the Vail Valley!  The Black Diamond Ball isn’t only the most fun you can have in black tie, it is an opportunity to enjoy great friends while supporting a great cause!
