Comedian and writer Adrianne Chalepah began her career in entertainment while attending Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado in 2004. In 2007, she and her college sweetheart welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world. And in 2009, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, Magna Cum Laude. In 2010, her comedy career took off when she teamed up with the popular Native American comedy troupe, 49 Laughs Comedy. Since then, she’s been featured in the Sept/Oct 2011 Issue of Native Peoples magazine as the leading Native female comedian in America. She’s also been a guest star on the late night television show The After After Party, and in 2012, she was honored to open for the First Lady Michelle Obama at a campaign event in Colorado.  In 2013, she made television history by becoming the first Native American bride to be featured on WeTv’s Bridezillas. She then formed the world's only, all-indigenous, all-women comedy group, Ladies of Native Comedy. Aside from comedy, Chalepah has a passion for writing, photography, editing, graphic design, and videography. You can read her work in the anthology Funny Girl, released in 2017. 



Our Gala features a Silent Auction and Raffle to raise funds for future Galas, Entertainment, and business contacts to network.
