BIG SKY – Big Sky Community Corp. has provided recreational resources and programming to Big Sky citizens and visitors for the past 17 years.

The parks and trails nonprofit now invites the community to participate in its annual Parks and Trails Gala fundraiser, to be held at the Big Sky Community Park on Saturday, Aug. 15 from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m.
The gala is a celebration of parks, trails, recreation, and community in Big Sky. Event attendees will enjoy complimentary beer and wine, dinner catered by Bozeman-based chef Ryan LaFoley, unique auction items, and live music performed by eight-piece rhythm and blues band, Bluejack.

The evening’s proceeds will help fund BSCC’s recreational amenities and programs, and further the organization’s vision of a community connected by world-class recreation and enrichment opportunities.
Over the past three years the Gala has helped fund 5 miles of new trails, a concession pavilion, improved park and trail signage, a Camp Big Sky yurt, and landscaping at the community park, among other area benefits.

Founded in 1998, BSCC manages 83 acres of public park land and over 16 miles of public trails. A number of community-driven programs and committees have formed under the BSCC umbrella including Big Sky Tennis Association; Camp Big Sky; Crail Ranch Conservators; Big Sky Softball League; Big Sky Disc Golf League; Big Sky Natural Resource Council; Parks Committee; and Trails Committee.
