The 2019 Denver Wealth Management Open

 
This year we partnered with Denver Wealth Management (DWM) – a local wealth management firm – to host our first annual Denver Wealth Management Open. The charity tournament was hosted at Fossil Trace Golf Club in Golden, CO. Fossil Trace has been honored on numerous occasions as one of the premier courses in Denver.
 
Our prayers were answered, and we were blessed with gorgeous, blue Colorado skies on tournament day. Bright and early, our participants arrived, signed-in, ate breakfast burritos, hit the driving range, and carted-up for 18-holes.
 
Following tournament play, participants funneled into the Fossil Trace banquet room for a delicious BBQ lunch, an impressive live auction from DWM co-founder Blair Braden (who had trained in his auctioneering skills leading up to the tournament), and a fun awards ceremony.
 
Denver Wealth Management covered all costs of the tournament; therefore, all proceeds will benefit our 2019-2020 Sally Shuler Scholarship fund. That means all of the money raised via registration fees, mulligans, raffle tickets, and auction items benefit local high school students.
 
Like most clubs, continued education is a priority for us. Our members are present in local elementary schools through book and backpack trusts, all the way up to high school through our involvement with local Interact Clubs.
 
The majority of our high school involvement is with Thomas Jefferson High School (TJHS). We have a scholarship fund in place – the Sally Shuler Scholarship – which offers financial assistance to high-performing TJHS seniors. These students not only excel in the classroom, but outside as well. Students who have received the scholarship in past years exhibit leadership through involvement with after-school clubs, sometimes full-time work schedules, and athletics.
 
Considering the impact of student loan debt, these continued-education values ring true for Denver Wealth Management as well. Through their support and the support of our community, we fielded 78 golfers – a huge feat for a first-year tournament. Our team of charitable participants, including the donations from non-golfers, generated a total of $10,520.79 for the Sally Shuler Scholarship. With that money we will offer five new scholarship opportunities that will kick-start these student’s continued education journeys.
 
This will add to our $4,000 fund and continue to change the lives of students here in our own community. We are thankful to Denver Wealth Management for hosting this event. We are also thankful to local businesses for their contributions to our silent auction. And we are very thankful to our members and all participants who made this event a success.
