Mark your calendars! The Ninth Annual Colorado Celebrity Classic to benefit TAPS will be held June 12-14, 2014 and we anticipate another absolutely incredible event! Last year we raised nearly $300,000 for TAPS bringing our total to nearly $2.5 million cleared since the inception of this event.
This is not an ordinary golf tournament! What makes it unique is that two evenings of exceptional entertainment are also included. Back by popular demand we will kick off on Thursday, June 14 with the incomparable Songwriter's Show, (show only-no dinner) The "Saluting our Fallen Heroes" Dinner Show and Auction, Friday, June 13, will again be at Steve Grove's Ranch at Cherry Creek with the famous prime rib barbeque dinner prepared by the Coors Chuckwagon Cowboys!
This year's entertainers are yet to be confirmed but you can be assured both evenings, as always, will feature an incredible array of entertainment and we guarantee electrifying shows not to be missed!
Golf will be played Saturday, June 14 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 one or both of the shows.
All proceeds from our 2014 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. As last year, we also hope to help underwrite the National Suicide Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp . TAPS is more relevant than ever to surviving families due, sadly, to the high suicide rate of our returning military.
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” shows. 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.
Check back for event specifics and registration to be posted at a later date.
