Mark your calendars! The Eighth Annual Colorado Celebrity Classic to benefit TAPS will be held June 21-22, 2013 and we anticipate another absolutely incredible event! Last year we raised nearly $400,000 for TAPS!
This is not an ordinary golf tournament! What makes it unique is that we include one spectacular evening of entertainment. The "Saluting our Fallen Heroes" Dinner Show and Auction kicks off our event on Friday at Steve Grove's Ranch at Cherry Creek with the famous prime rib barbeque dinner prepared by the Coors Chuckwagon Cowboys!
This year's show will star the legendary Michael Martin Murphey (Wildfire & Carolina in the Pines), Grammy-Award winner Gary Morris (Wind Beneath My Wings, Jean ValJean in Les Miserables on Broadway) hot country singer/songwriter, Darryl Worley (Have You Forgotten) and popular singer /songwriter, Brett Jones. Between them all, they have written and recorded over 15 #1 hits and over 50 songs in the Top 40! Also enjoy David Letterman's all-time favorite comedian, Gary Mule Deer plus the exciting musical group and recording artists, Legacy Quartet. We guarantee an electrifying show, not to be missed!
Golf will be played Saturday at one of Colorado's most esteemed and exclusive venues, The Eisenhower Golf Club at the US Air Force Academy followed by a "Burgers and Braggin" Rights Awards Party at the golf course.
If you are not a golfer, we also provide an opportunity for you to attend just our fabulous Friday "Saluting our Fallen Heroes" Dinner Show.
All proceeds from our 2013 Colorado Celebrity Classic will fund the TAPS’ regional Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp for Young Survivors at Fort Carson, Colorado and help underwrite the costs of others at other bases around the country. Our goal this year is to also help underwrite the TAPS National Suicide Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp in Colorado Springs in October.
Please follow the links to the photo galleries and accompanying press stories. You will see how critically important TAPS is to the families of our valiant fallen service men and women.
The Colorado Celebrity Classic not only gives golfers an opportunity to compete, but also allows all of our guests to be entertained by the best and mingle with celebrities at our "talk of the town" show. Previous participants have given this event rave reviews, many saying it was the best event they had ever attended!
We invite you to join our team at the Colorado Celebrity Classic to have a fantastic time while supporting a wonderful cause! Please make our event a priority.
