Due to the coronavirus and the government order to close down large gatherings, we are cancelling this year’s Founders’ Night Dinner

We had planned to honor Colorado’s Gallagher family with our Dave D’Evelyn Award. They have bucked the corporate trend of apologizing for their industry as they proudly sell tobacco products at their Smoker Friendly stores and they lean into the political incorrectness of it. No wonder they’ve always loved our Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Party and supplied us with their great cigars. We will honor them at next year’s dinner.

Activist and radio host Kim Monson was to receive our Vern Bickel Award for standing up to local socialism and her honoring World War II heroes and saving their stories for future generations.

As you know, our Founders’ Night Dinner is our major fundraising event so cancelling it is quite a financial hit. It is our hope that those of you who were planning to attend or sponsor a table would consider donating that amount directly to Independence. The reality is that our work will be more needed than ever in Colorado as progressives make sure not to “waste this crisis” by growing the size and scope of government.

Who will stand in their way? We will. This could well be our finest hour.


Now is the time for us to be strong and for Independence Institute to be well-funded for the fight. Please use the form below or contact Mary MacFarlane at mary@i2i.org to sponsor an “imaginary” table or purchase an “imaginary” ticket for Founders’ Night.
