Ironbridge sets 3 days to support nonprofits

Summer is here, and golfers are itching to get out and enjoy a round or two. Knowing that golfers are strong supporters of nonprofit organizations, Ironbridge is launching a new charitable program this summer to raise money for three area nonprofits: YouthZone, Valley View Foundation and Colorado Mountain College Foundation.

Ironbridge will host a "Charitable Day" for each of the above organizations: YouthZone on Friday, June 23; Valley View Foundation on Friday, July 14; and Colorado Mountain College Foundation on Friday, Aug. 11. For each of the charity days, Ironbridge will donate $50 from every regular-priced green fee ($129) that day to the charity. Golfers simply need to call Ironbridge for a tee time at 970-384-0630.

"We are often approached by local nonprofits who are considering doing some type of golf event as a fundraiser," said Stephanie Keister, Ironbridge director of marketing. "We love hosting golf tournaments for charitable events. However, tournaments can be a lot of work for nonprofits who don't have a large staff that can help organize the event. We wanted to come up with a way to help local nonprofits raise money that wouldn't be too stressful for their staff and volunteers."

For non-golfers who want to support one (or all) of the nonprofits, there will be opportunities to make donations on the Charitable Days while dining at the Ironbridge Grill, which is open to the public daily for lunch and for dinner Tuesdays through Saturday evenings. In addition, area businesses are welcome to sponsor holes on the days of the charitable days for $500 per hole, per day or for $1,000 per hole for all three charitable days. Businesses interested in sponsoring a hole may contact Stephanie Keister at 970-384-3987 or via email at skeister@ironbridgeclub.com.
