Paint the Town Pink is Florence Crittenton’s largest fundraising event of the year, contributing up to $130,000 each year to our budget. The funds raised at PINK help Florence Crittenton provide the highest quality care to our most critical populations, marginalized families and their precious children. Every dime raised at PINK goes to make our communities in Lewis & Clark County and throughout Montana a better place for all of us, today and most importantly in the future!


We are all about having fun and raising money at PINK! You can expect a top-notch night that will leave you feeling great about your community. Thanks to hundreds of volunteers, sponsors, and donors you will step into a truly transformed Fairgrounds that will take you to the most glamorous of evenings fit for the big city!

Hosted cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres will greet you, with time to chat with friends and peruse our high quality silent auction items. Once seated we will get the show started with a fabulous meal, incredible speakers and a fast-paced, high-energy Live Auction. End your evening dancing the night away…this is truly one of the best nights on the town!


Tickets are $125/person or $1,100 for a table of 10. Your ticket price includes a gourmet meal, appetizers, hosted bar, and music.  Tickets go on sale December, 2019.
