Those options also may be purchased separately. Each player will receive a “goody bag.” And, of course, the coveted “Cozens Cup” trophy will be awarded to the winning team, to be held until next year’s winners claim the prized cup engraved with all winners’ names.
Karen Vance has again donated the raffle prize, a signed and numbered giclee titled Aspen and Wild Roses.
For the live auction Grand Park has again donated a stay at their private retreat, Canyon Ranch. The beautiful cabin near the Gunnison River sleeps six, so the winner can take a family, or three couples can collaborate on the bidding. Entertainment at the ranch includes fishing, hiking, bicycling, elegance, comfort and beautiful scenery.
One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the tournament will be distributed to non-profit organizations in Grand County. Lions provide eye exams and eyeglasses for local school children in need, annually award college scholarships to Middle Park High School graduates, and support community organizations through our Lions Foundation.
