CHALLENGE ASPEN CEO: ANNUAL GOLF TOURNEY BREAKS FUNDRAISING CEILING
This past week’s eighth annual fundraiser for Challenge Aspen was the most successful in its history, according to the nonprofit’s executive director.
Challenge Aspen CEO and co-founder Houston Cowan said while it’s unknown exactly how much the Vince Gill & Amy Grant Golf Classic raised this past Monday and Tuesday, it’s by far more than in previous years. Last’s year take was about $250,000, he said.
“It’s the most successful event Challenge Aspen has had in its 15 years,” he said, adding the money raised will enable 800 disabled veterans and others with disabilities to participate in the Snowmass Village-based organization’s summer and winter programs. more!
