Ten Years Makes It a Tradition!
Now in its tenth year, the Colorado Celebrity Classic to Benefit TAPS has a successful formula for healing loss and celebrating life: music, laughter, golf, and unashamed expressions of gratitude and humility. It’s a powerful combination.
In its first nine years, supporters of the Colorado Celebrity Classic have donated more than $3 million for TAPS programs. It is considered one of the most successful charitable events in Colorado – and by all accounts, the most fun!
Three premier events:
1) Songwriters Show and Golf, May 1-2, 2015

Friday, May 1, Radisson Denver Southeast; Golf at Eisenhower Golf Club at the US Air Force Academy with Nashville celebrities and USAF generals available for a limited number of Four-Star Sponsors, Saturday, May 2

Sponsorship packages for golf teams include one or both concerts. Sponsorships are also available for table hosts at one or both dinner concerts. Individual tickets available for golf and/or both concerts (open seating only; TAPS-assigned golf team).
All proceeds from our 2015 Colorado Celebrity Classic fund the TAPS' Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp for Young Survivors at Fort Carson, Colorado as well as help to underwrite the program at other military bases. Last year, we helped underwrite the National TAPS Suicide Survivors Retreat in Colorado Springs for more than 600 families and plan to help again this year. Although our military is drawing down, we feel there is even a much greater need for TAPS now with the epidemic of suicide among our returning military heroes, which is so tragically difficult for the surviving families.
Please follow the links to the photo galleries and accompanying press stories. You’ll learn why TAPS is so significant to the families of our valiant fallen service men and women.
