Friday, June 16th - SALUTING OUR FALLEN HEROES DINNER & SONGWRITERS SHOW
We're combining the best from 12 years of Colorado Celebrity Classics into ONE event - the always popular Songwriters Show at The Ranch featuring Grammy and Country Music Award-winning artists. If you've attended before, you know this evening of story-telling and music is fun and intimate. This is a fresh, new show this year, with inside stories of the hit songs you'll remember.
Meet your friends, enjoy a drink and dinner music by Tony David and Wildefire. Savor a full-course dinner of delicious pit-roasted prime rib prepared by the Coors Cowboy Club "Chuckwagon Crew". Learn how you help TAPS make a difference in the lives of the families of our fallen military heroes. Bid on exceptional and unusual gifts in the fast-paced Live Auction. Then, enjoy an evening of exceptional musical entertainment with Grammy Award-winning songwriters Billy Montana, Frank Myers, Jimmy Nichols and Keni Thomas and the internationally acclaimed, R&B/Pop group, All-4-One!
