ABOUT A MOVEABLE FEAST™
A Moveable Feast™, chaired by Cheryl McConnell, is a unique and successful event benefiting Blue Sky Bridge. The event combines three concepts: the intimacy of a private dinner party, the excitement of a large scale gala and the fascination of private home tours.
The evening begins with a large cocktail party for all the guests at one of Boulder’s most spectacular homes. Then the group disperses to small or medium-sized private dinners at other beautiful residences, each with unique and beautifully crafted menus.
