15th Annual Swinging@AIDS (Hybrid) Denver Golf Tournament
Celebrating a Very Successful 15th Annual Swinging@AIDS Benefit Golf Tournament and Silent Auction in Denver
Friends gathered, golfed and dined at the beautiful newly renovated Denver City Park course Tuesday, August 3rd. Early projections indicate that this event raised over $51,000! Funds go toward people facing twin pandemics: COVID-19 and HIV in Rwanda, Kenya, India and the USA.
Thank you to our dedicated golfers, generous sponsors, hard-working volunteers, and to everyone who helped to make this day a success. We couldn't do this without your support and involvement.
August 3, 2021 Proclaimed Swinging@AIDS Day by Colorado Governor
In recognition of the work through the Center for Health and Hope to fundraise and provide outreach programs for those marginalized and stigmatized by AIDS and COVID; and in honor of the past efforts of Herb Bacon, well- known community leader and philanthropist from Grand Junction, CO, who was the honoree of the 15th Annual Swinging@AIDS Golf Benefit and Silent Auction; Governor Jared Polis proclaimed August 3, 2021 as Swinging@AIDS Day.
Thank you Ron Wooding, Senator James Coleman, and to all who made this happen.
This year's Chair was Bruce Berger. Our 15th Annual Swinging@AIDS Golf Tournament was dedicated to the memory of Herb Bacon.
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.
