Colorado PGA REACH Invitational

Larkspur, Colo. – Chris Hardesty and his family will receive a life-changing gift on the morning of June 26 when they will be presented with the keys to their move-in ready, mortgage-free home in Pueblo, Colo. The home, donated by the Colorado PGA REACH Foundation, will be given to the Hardesty family through the Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program.

“It is an incredible privilege to serve one of our nation’s combat wounded heroes in this way,” said Eddie Ainsworth, PGA, executive director/CEO of the Colorado PGA. “We are proud to support this organization, and thank all our veterans for the sacrifices they have made to uphold our freedom.”

Former U.S. Army Sergeant Hardesty, who served as a Cavalry Scout, was injured while on patrol in Afghanistan when the M-ATV he was traveling in was attacked with an IED. The Purple Heart, the Army Commendation Metal and the NATO Medal are just a few of the awards that have been bestowed upon Hardesty.

The Second Annual Colorado PGA REACH Invitational Fundraiser will be held on June 26 at the Colorado Golf Club Championship Course in Parker, Colo. The event is open to all golfers interested in being a part of this great cause. Teams will be comprised of three amateurs and one Colorado PGA professional. Event registration is open through June 21 at https://copga.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/copga17/event/copga1724/index.htm.

“Through the Colorado PGA REACH Foundation, we strive to instill a culture of giving back to the community,” said Ben Welsh, PGA Head Professional at Frost Creek Golf Club and vice-president of the Colorado PGA and Colorado PGA REACH board liaison. “Being able to give back to a wounded veteran like Sergeant Hardesty is the least we can do as PGA professionals to say thank you for his service.”

Media and news organizations are encouraged and welcomed to cover this life-changing event. The Military Warriors Support Foundation, a non-profit based in San Antonio, Texas, is the sponsor of the Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program, a renowned national military charity that focuses on placing eligible veterans and their families in their own homes.

$2499.00 per Team, $833.00 per Person (each Player will receive a donation statement for $400 to Colorado PGA REACH). $100 per team will be charged at registration with the remainder charged once the deadline for registration closes. 

Entry Fee includes Breakfast, PGA Instruction on the Practice Tee, Golf, Cart, Caddy, Open Bar throughout the day, Cigars, Lunch, and a custom built wedge from Callaway!

HISTORY OF THE PATRIOT TOUR: 

The Patriot Tour begins during
Memorial Day weekend. A group of
riders escorts one American Flag on the back of a motorcycle to Illinois. Upon arrival, the flag is transferred to the
Illinois escort. The very next day the Flag is taken to Indiana, Michigan and on and on for 100 days, through 48 states. The Flag finally makes it full
circle and lands right back in Wisconsin where it started over Labor Day weekend.

PRIVATE "ACRONYM" SHOWING - JEPPESEN CAMPUS


The Jeppesen Engagement Team Presents

ACRONYM

Thursday, May 25 - 11:30a to 12:30p

May is National Military Appreciation Month when we honor, remember, recognize and appreciate all military personnel; the men and women who have served throughout our history.

On May 25, we are honored to observe Military Appreciation Month with the showing of the documentary film, ACRONYM: The Cross-Generational Battle with PTSD. It examines the post-war lives of more than a dozen Colorado veterans who experienced the worst of war and subsequently the mental trauma they brought home. This powerful film has been shown to veterans, military charities, VFW/American Legion posts and to lawmakers on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.

The film’s director, Steffan Tubbs, will introduce the film. Tubbs is the host of The American Veteran Show on KOA NewsRadio Saturdays at 6:00 am.

ARMED FORCES DAY: Ainsley Price Day of Service for Veterans

Ainsley Price Day of Service for Veterans

VOA Bill Daniels Veteran Services Center

1247 Santa Fe Drive   Denver80204

May 20, 2017   9:00a – 12:00p

Dogs play an important role in helping Veterans* cope with reintegration. Unfortunately, though, resources are not widely available to help provide veterinary care for their companions. In fact, many Veterans experiencing hardships choose between resources for themselves and their companion animals, potentially compromising their own welfare.

On Armed Forces Day, May 20 2017 - the “Ainsley Price Day of Service for Veterans” - Veterans won’t have to choose: veterinary students from the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences will provide exams and services to  canine companions under the guidance of licensed veterinarians; case coordinators from Denver Public Health will conduct “Heart Health Screenings” for Veterans; and a representative from an in-home dog training company will offer dog behavior tips. Best of all, all services will be free in appreciation of Armed Forces Veterans’ service.

If you too would like to help please follow the La Alma-Lincoln Park Neighborhood Association and donate to VOA’s “Peer Program.” “Peer Program” funds will be used for counseling and related services. Checks should be made payable to Volunteers of America Colorado with “Peer Program” in the memo line. You can also help by bringing a can(s) of food for the VOA’s Food Bank.                                               

*Veterans: Please bring proof of service for validation prior to receiving services.
