The Avalanche's annual Charity Golf Classic was held Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2015, at The Ridge at Castle Pines North in Castle Rock. The event gave fans and sponsors an opportunity to spend a day golfing while raising funds to support youth recreation, health and education programs in Colorado. 

This September Classic has raised over $1.3 million during its 20-year run.

“Without this event we wouldn’t be able to do what we really want to do in the community,” said Deb Dowling Canino, executive director, Kroenke Sports Charities.
