2016 TAPS CELEBRITY CLASSIC EVENTS

Now in our 11th year, the non-profit Colorado Celebrity Classic to benefit TAPS is a true celebration of the lives of our fallen heroes – all while helping military families. With music, laughter, golf, and gratitude, the friends of TAPS know that fun and fundraising create a powerful formula for healing.

Since our inaugural Celebrity Invitational in 2006, the Colorado Celebrity Classic has donated more than $3.5 million to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors – a portion of all proceeds from the several Colorado Celebrity Classic events help fund TAPS programs and services that directly support Colorado survivors, both adults & children. This include seminars, retreats, youth camps, a 24/7 helpline, casework assistance, and a TAPS Quarterly Magazine. Over the past year's through your generous support, Colorado Classic events have also helped fund many TAPS major national and regional events in Colorado. We thank you.

Due to popular demand, the Colorado Celebrity Classic just keeps growing.

2016 offers five premier events
