Beer, Broncos, wings and golf. What could be better? How about combining all of the above to help Denver-area youth? Tuesday night guests gathered at Top Golf in Centennial to attend ‘Golf Par-Tee’ hosted by Denver Broncos cornerback, Bradley Roby. The event benefitted Smile Generation and Strikes for Kids.
Roby made his way through the 16 reserved golf pods on the bottom level of the venue — signing autographs, taking photos, and swinging clubs with fans. Guests enjoyed food and libations while golfing and bidding on silent auction items.
“It is great to be here” Roby said. “It is helping a great cause, and it is always great to celebrate with fans the day after a big Broncos win.”
Also in attendance were kids from the Boys and Girls’ Clubs of Denver. Leaders spoke about how it was most of the kids’ first times at Top Golf.
“We wanted to invite the kids to come and enjoy the event with everybody else” event host Alex Ramirez from Mile High Sports Radio said. “They have a chance to golf, play pool and meet Bradley.”
It would have been hard to miss the event’s co-guest of honor, Mike Dobbyn — standing 6’8″ this professional long-drive golfer holds the world record for the farthest drive in history at 551 yards, twice the length of the Top Golf range.
This year’s outing marked the first time The Final Word has hosted the charity golf event. They decided to go forward with the event after their inaugural event this spring at Brunswick with CJ Anderson was such a success.
“The generosity of our sponsors and guest this year was incredible,” Ramirez said. “The organizations that will benefit from this generosity have a meaningful impact in their communities.”
The event ended up raising thousands of dollars for its benefiting charities — now that’s a hole in one.
