Calling all golfers! Support Colorado Ballet at the Dick Saunders Classic Golf Tournament

Thursday, April 09, 2015

Do you enjoy playing golf and supporting one of Colorado's most-beloved cultural institutions?  Then you need to participate in Colorado Ballet's first annual Dick Saunders Classic Golf Tournament on Monday, May 18 at Columbine Country Club.

We are looking for foursomes and individual golfers to play in the event, which includes fabulous prizes, lunch and drinks.  Warm-up begins at 10 a.m. and players will have lunch at 11 a.m.  The golfers will tee off at noon.  There will be on-course challenges like closest to the pin and longest drive for men and women.  The top foursome and competition winners will receive prizes.  The tournament will also feature a hole-in-one competition and the winner will receive a two-year lease on a Maserati (sponsored by Mike Ward)!

Plus, all players will receive tickets to Colorado Ballet's Arts with Altitude Gala two days before the tournament on May 16.  Foursomes receive six tickets and individual players receive two tickets.

Join Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs, Dick Saunders and local celebrities at the tournament.  Take off a Monday, enjoy the beautiful Colorado sunshine, play a little golf with your friends and support a great cause!  We are only entering 25 foursomes, so register today at www.coloradoballet.org/golf.

The Dick Saunders Classic raises money for Colorado Ballet, which encompasses the professional Company, Academy and Education and Outreach Programs.  The tournament is named in honor of Dick Saunders and his family because they have done so much to support Colorado Ballet.

Colorado Ballet to host gala and golf tournament in May

Wednesday, April 01, 2015

Colorado Ballet will host the Colorado Ballet gala Arts with Altitude at 6 p.m. on May 16, 2015 at its new building, The Armstrong Center for Dance at 1075 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO 80204.  Two days later, the ballet will host the Dick Saunders Classic Golf Tournament at Columbine Country Club, 17 Fairway Lane, Littleton, CO 80123.

The Western-chic inspired Arts with Altitude gala includes a selection of culinary creations by chef Troy Guard of Guard and Grace and Three Tomatoes Catering.  The event features live artist demonstrations throughout the ballet studios and silent and live auctions.  In addition, Colorado Ballet’s dancers will present a unique performance to live music by country band Buckstein.  At the end of the evening, attendees are encouraged to show off their dance moves during a live concert by Buckstein.

“The gala will feature fabulous culinary creations, libations, and live entertainment,” said Alyson Graves, Gala Chair.  “The event will take place in Colorado Ballet’s fantastic new building and every space in this unique venue will have so many amazing attractions.  Plus, we can’t wait to see everyone in their Western-chic attire, which is basically fancy Western wear with a nice jacket.  This is such a fun way to raise money for Colorado Ballet!”

On May 18, the golf tournament will begin with warm-up at 10 a.m., lunch at 11 a.m. and tee off at 12 p.m.  The tournament will consist of twenty-five foursomes and will include on-course challenges like closest to the pin and longest drive for both men and women.  The tournament will also award prizes to the top foursome and competition winners.  The hole-in-one competition is sponsored by Mike Ward and the winner will receive a two-year lease on a Maserati.

“We named the golf tournament after Dick Saunders because we want to honor the man and his family for everything they done for Colorado Ballet,” said Susan Struna, Golf Tournament Co-Chair.  “So many people who love golf are also fans of the ballet, so we put the two together to raise money for one of Colorado’s most beloved arts institutions and specifically, our education and outreach efforts.  Our outreach programs make 60,000 contacts each year.”

Foursomes for the golf tournament include six tickets to the gala.  Individual players in the tournament will receive two tickets to the gala.

Both events raise money for Colorado Ballet, which encompasses the professional Company, Academy and Education and Outreach Programs.

“In addition to touching so many lives through the power of dance, Colorado Ballet also has a $30 million annual impact on the City of Denver,” said Struna.  “This is an important organization to the cultural vibrancy of our city and state and we need support to keep our outstanding programs and performances going.”
