This year's Chair is Bruce Berger. Our 15th Annual Swinging@AIDS Golf Tournament is dedicated to the memory of Herb Bacon.
The 2021 Swinging@AIDS Golf Benefit will be dedicated to Herb Bacon, age 90, Grand Junction, Colorado, who died January 6, 2021, after a struggle in recent years with Alzheimer’s disease. Herb was a truly great humanitarian and philanthropist! A banker by profession, he served since the Center’s inception on its International Advisory Committee and offered assistance for global programs. He helped organize three Swinging@AIDS benefit golf tournaments in Grand Junction.
He and his wife, Laura May, were generous donors to the Center, funding many programs. The Bacon Family Foundation has continued this philanthropy. They traveled extensively internationally and made possible various HIV projects in Kenya and India. They ensured the Center was a source of educational AIDS programs internationally and monitored the effectiveness of grants in various countries.
He was "Mr. Grand Junction" in that he supported financially and personally every good program and project that benefited the community and church. He served with distinction for decades on the Board of the Iliff School of Theology. He was one of Colorado's greatest citizens and a faithful, compassionate Christian.
