Join Challenge Aspen for the Vince Gill & Amy Grant Gala and Golf Classic
Challenge Aspen presents two days of fun to help make possibilities for people with disabilities.
The 14th annual Vince Gill & Amy Grant Gala and Golf Classic begins Monday, July 31, 2017, as Grammy Award winners Vince Gill and Amy Grant rock their 14th and final year on the Challenge Aspen stage! This not-to-be-missed, western-themed evening includes cocktails, dinner, silent and live auctions, and of course, great music!
The celebration continues on-course Tuesday at the golf tournament where attendees enjoy VIP treatment including breakfast, clinics and a post-golf awards party, with complimentary beverages and delicious eats provided at each hole by local Roaring Fork Valley restaurants. Meridian Jewelers and Glenwood Springs Subaru have generously donated a Rolex and a 2017 Outback Limited to tournament participants who make a hole-in-one!
