SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

PLEASE STAY SAFE & HEALTHY!!!

 

Special statement from the Pro Players Association(updated 9/5/20):

First thing we want to wish everyone well and we hope that you’re staying safe and healthy. That’s the main thing!

These are tough times for us all, and especially for nonprofits. But not unlike others in our industry, we are also suffering financially. We have had to cancel or postpone over 18 fundraising events since March 2020.
We’re thankful that we have received some financial assistance, we however are still in need of financial contributions to continue operations to provide our fundraising activities and community service projects.
Many of these are on hold at the present time due to the stay at home order. We continue to operate our online stores through eBay and Ecrater, although sales are at an all time low.
Thanks to Amazon who contributes donations to us when buyers shop through our nonprofit link(Shop at smile.amazon.com/ch/76-0714756 ).

At the present time we have postponed our Babe Parilli Memorial Celebrity Charity Golf Classic to benefit cancer research at the Anschutz Cancer Center at University of Colorado Medical Campus. The new date is Monday, June 28, 2021.

We are offering some great opportunities for sponsorship that are still beneficial even now throughout this COVID-19 crisis.

Anyone interested in participating as a golfer and/or a sponsor, click here to visit our Tournaments page for details on the event. Please contact our office for more info at 720-327-9207 or proplayersassociation@gmail.com.

We held our first event since the Covid breakout, a Celebrity Charity Tournament & Auction for Tailwinds of Hope at Hyland Hills Golf Club, Westminster on Friday, August 7, 2020. The Silent Auction was held Live at the event and simultaneously On-Line. This turned out to be a successful venture for all involved! Thanks to Greg Boyd, Felix Claudio, Jim Armstrong, JimBob Rogers, John Sandy Santucci, James Kelly, Chris Brewer, Mark Cooper, and Moses Jones for their participation at the event!

We are in process of organizing the 2nd annual Rumble in the Rockies Motorcycle Officer Challenge. Hoping to present this event in June 2021.

The Celebrity Charity Golf Tournament which was scheduled for Oct 5, 2020 at the Broadmoor Golf Club was postponed to May 15, 2021. The event benefits The Becky Barker Breast Cancer Foundation.

We just received a new delivery of some incredible auction items, some in process of being customized and framed-up by Academy Frame Company, Colorado Springs, our official framers. See the slide show below for a preview.

We are actively searching for fundraising opportunities, unfortunately due to Covid-19, they are slim to none at the present time.


For those of you who are able to help us financially, here is a link with which you may make a tax-deductible contribution. All contributions are tax-deductible at present under the CARES Act. Donations accepted by credit or debit card below. Checks accepted paid to the order of Pro Players Association and sent to:  PPA, P.O. Box 631806, Highlands Ranch, CO 80130.

Thank you for your generosity and support of the Pro Players Association.


Stay well and stay healthy!

DEATH NOTICES & CONDOLENCES

Hall of Famer Lou Brock,
Cardinals base-stealing icon, dies at 81
 
Baseball Hall of Famer Lou Brock, a six-time MLB All Star and St. Louis Cardinals legend, died Sunday, September 6, 2020. He was 81. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Brock died Sunday afternoon after fighting numerous medical conditions.
PPA CEO Gary R. Adler had the distinct privilege on behalf of the Colorado Rockies to be an ambassador assigned to escort Lou Brock during the           1998 All Star Gameheld at Coors Field.
Adler was quoted to say, "What an awesome guy he was! I got to talk with him a lot then and later remained in touch now and then over the years. Lou became a member of the Pro Players Association."
Lou died from multiple myeloma, a blood cancer Sunday, September 6, 2020. This is the same disease which killed our good friend, PPA member
Babe Parilli, Quarterback and Coach.
Adler said, "We will be holding The Babe Parilli Memorial Golf Classic next June 2021 at which time we will also remember Lou Brock." The charity tournament will benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Department at the University of Colorado Medical Campus in Aurora, CO.

Randy Penn 1949-2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mayor/Coach Randy Penn of Englewood, CO. Randy assisted and/or advised Pro Players Association on several events held in Englewood over the years. Especially during his term as Mayor. He became a good friend of our organization. We had the pleasure of working with Randy on several projects such as our 2008 golf tournament held at Broken Tee, Englewood in association with the Englewood Chamber of Commerce. He will be greatly missed.
Condolences to his family and friends. RIP Coach.

Jerry Sturm 1936-2020


 

Pro Players Association would like to extend our heartfelt condolences on the passing of Jerry Sturm to his family and friends. Jerry’s been charter member of Pro Players Association. He was very active with us for many years. He was an incredible friend, and supporter of all that we did. May God bless him and his family. May he rest in peace. #72forever
