"We are thrilled to be hosting an event that supports such a great charity in our community, and show that cannabis businesses are passionate about giving back to the people of Denver and being philanthropic.

The tournament is expected to bring over 80 guests and participants, and will feature a silent auction open to the public. The scramble-format makes the event enjoyable for golfers of any skill level. Shotgun start begins at 1:30pm, with games and prizes will be awarded throughout the event; the awards ceremony begins at 5:30pm. All participants must be at least 21 years of age.
Andrew Kimmell from the Denver Colorado AIDS Project also had this to say about the event, "The mission of the Colorado AIDS Project is to equitably meet the evolving needs of people affected by HIV and other disease through prevention, care and advocacy. We support over 4,100 people living with HIV annually. Services include case management, behavioral health counseling, health insurance enrollment assistance, housing resources, emergency financial and transportation assistance, and food banks.
We would like to thank The Hemp Connoisseur Magazine, Premium Pete's Cultivation, and their sponsors for coming together to raise funds for what they and their supporters see as being valuable work being offered to support the local Denver and statewide communities in Colorado. "
