The Mile High Gala has become the local lacrosse event of the year bringing together individuals from all affiliations acting in unison to grow the game by providing opportunity and access for Denver area urban youth.  The evening featured a cocktail and dinner hour, silent auction and special appeal.  Presenters included six-time NCAA championship and current University of Denver head coach Bill Tierney, DU and World Games gold medal winning coach Matt Brown, and Denver Outlaw president Mac Freeman, as well as 8th grade City Lax participant Cole Finley-Ponds.
