Oct 6th 6-9pm Suitcase Party

A fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters

Of Southwest Colorado

What is a Suitcase Party? The party will be held at the private jet hangar, AvFlight Hangar, at Durango Regional Airport. Guests will arrive with a packed suitcase, walk the red carpet and enjoy an evening of cocktails, food and live entertainment. There will also be a live and silent auction focused around travel. One lucky couple’s name or one individual’s name will be drawn and they will be swept away in an 8 seater, private plane that night for a 3-night trip. They will have a chance to purchase two other seats on the plane or those seats will be auctioned to the highest bidder. Combine that with live music, auctions and great food/drink and its one heck of a party. The prize includes: transportation via private plane, transportation to the hotel, three nights luxury accommodations, dinner and some activities. After the winner is chosen, we will begin a live auction of travel packages to destinations within easy driving distance. Packages will be for that night and the following day as well as some for future travel times. The destination of the trip is not disclosed until after the winners are drawn, but we will give hints so that people know how to pack! Check out the Suitcase Party event page on the website ( and our Facebook page for updates!
