Arapahoe House held its 10th annual charity golf tournament Teeing off for Arapahoe House on Monday June 21, 2010 at Green Gables Country Club in Denver. 130 golfers helped raise $42,000 through sponsorships, golf tournament contests and auction participation.
“In a struggling economy, many nonprofits have been forced to cut their charity golf tournaments this year,” said Aaron LaPedis, golf tournament chairman. “We feel fortunate. Arapahoe House was able to increase both the revenue from the tournament and the number of golfers by more than 50 percent this year. We also welcomed two brand new sponsors: Colorado Casualty and Lockton.”
Golfers enjoyed 18 challenging holes with prizes given to the top men’s, mixed and women’s foursomes. Tournament participants also enjoyed challenging contests, including a betting hole and dress up hole. At the dress up hole, participants paid $5 each to don tutu skirt and tee off at the women’s tee box.
All proceeds from the tournament benefitted the life-changing addiction treatment programs of Arapahoe House.
Arapahoe House would like to thank its sponsors: Budget Control Services, Colliers International, Colorado Auto & Parts, Fascination St. Gallery, Flood and Peterson, Lockton, Palace Construction, and Type Etc., with special thanks to Colorado Casualty for their generous support.
