Dawn to Dusk Annual Golf Challenge
Add to your calendar
Date: August 22
Location: The Club at Crested Butte & Skyland Private Residence
Details: Welcome to the 5th Annual Dawn to Dusk 100 Hole Golf Challenge, a signature fundraising event for the Center. Golfers play 100 holes of golf - or as many as they can - from dusk to dawn and solicit sponsors for either a flat dollar amount or a per-hole basis. Golfers must secure $1,000 in sponsorships to play. Sponsors may sponsor any amount, but a minimum $100 commitment gains them entry to the Player & Sponsor Celebration Party. Read on for details, golf registration, and sponsoring.

GOLF/PLAYER DETAILS
Location: The Club at Crested Butte
Time: 7:00 AM Breakfast for the Golfers / 8:00 AM Tee Time
Maximum Players: 36
Registration Fee: Free to golfers, but golfers must get $1,000 in sponsorships
Golf Guides: Mike Swan, Gloria & Ren Kern

There is no fee to golf; but golfers must get at least $1,000 in sponsorships to golf and attend the Player & Sponsor Celebration Party. Secure sponsorships by getting your family and friends to donate $1, $2 or $5 per hole. Modified rules, all the balls you need, and a golf cart help assure your success. Plus there are special awards for golfers, including the "Almost Green Jacket" and big prizes for most money raised. Club Pro Mike Swan says, "It was the best way to practice that I've ever participated in."

SPONSOR A GOLFER
Sponsorships are key, and any amount of sponsorship helps. You can commit a flat rate, or you can plege a per-hole amount. You can sponsor someone you know; or we can pair you with a player. A minimum $100 sponsorship is required to attend the party below.

THE PLAYER & SPONSOR CELEBRATION PARTY
Location: Skyland Private Residence
Arrival Time: 4:00-6:00 PM (after golf)
Cost: Minimum $100 sponsorship
Party Hosts: Kathy & Andy Rector
Chef: Chef / Owner Douglas Dodd, Coal Creek Grill (Crested Butte, CO)
Music: Chuck Grossman and Dawne Belloise

End the day with a celebration at the home of Kathy and Andy Rector on Grant Lake. Enjoy out-of-this-world small plates highlighting Colorado ingredients accompanied by plenty of Colorado spirits and musical entertainment from Chuck Grossman and Dawne Belloise.

ABOUT THE RECTOR HOME. The custom design of the Rector home is apparent as soon as you step through the doors. The stone rotunda entry emulates a wine barrel, complete with wrought iron metal strapping. The enviable walnut wet bar features rainforest marble and true leaded glass hand-set by local artist Heather Peterson. Hand-forged iron steel exists throughout, with highlights such as the torch style chandeliers composed of aspen branches and leaves, the hand-forged iron banisters, and stunning iron fireplace mantel. Hand-tooled, high-back leather chairs encircle the medieval style grand dining table. The timber framed Douglas fir beams are partnered with reclaimed oak wood floors and distressed alder kitchen cabinets.

ABOUT CHEF DOUG. Chef Douglas’ culinary journey took him from small local restaurants to training at the CIA (Hyde Park), apprenticing at the Hotel Erilbacherhof (Zurich), boutique upscale establishments in Dallas, Aspen, and Scottsdale, and a 7-year stint as Executive Chef at the Hotel Bel Air, which earned Zagat’s Most Popular Hotel Restaurant during his tenure. After a recent 6 years as Executive Chef at The Arabelle at Vail Square, Douglas comes back to a small town, living the dream of owning a restaurant.

ABOUT CHUCK & DAWNE. Local musicians Chuck Grossman, one of Colorado’s most talented guitar pickers, and Dawne Belloise, a vivacious and colorful vocalist, team up to give you a raucous good time. The well-seasoned duo’s tunes range from blues to Americana, spiced with soul that highlights Dawne’s sultry vocals and the pair's tight harmonies. Chuck has performed in Colorado ski towns since the 1970s and toured extensively in the U.S., Europe, Canada, and Mexico. Dawne was an integral character in Boulder's burgeoning music explosion in the early 1970s, serving as lead vocalist for several popular bands.
