CASA to host 10th annual golf tournament

CASA of the Continental Divide is delighted to announce that its 10th Annual Golf Tournament will be held on Wednesday, June 1. This year’s tournament will be held at the Red Sky Golf Club in scenic Wolcott, Colorado on the par 72 course designed by Greg Norman. Craggy rock outcroppings, twisted knots of scrub oak, rugged gulches and wildflower meadows all contribute to an unparalleled wilderness golf experience which has been named one of Golf Digest’s 20 Best Golf Resorts.

By participating in the tournament, you will be helping us ensure that every child who is the victim of abuse or neglect has an advocate in court to lift up their voice and ensure that they find a safe, permanent home. The tournament is underwritten through the support of Breckenridge Grand Vacations.

The entry fee for the tournament is $300 per person ($1,200 for a foursome) and includes 18 holes of golf, a box lunch, raffles for fabulous items and post-event appetizers and prizes. Registration will open at 9:30 a.m., and the tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. You can register online by completing the form at

Please feel free to send any questions regarding the tournament to

Summit animal shelter says thanks

The Summit County Animal Shelter expresses their gratitude to the Peak School for raising $194 for the shelter animals.

The Humane Education team has worked with the Frisco, Summit Cove and Dillon Valley elementary schools, as well as Summit High School to present their nine-week programs. The shelter would also like to thank local students Winter Eby, Elli Vandeyacht and Carson Michalowski for presenting to second and third graders at the elementary schools.

In addition, the shelter would like to thank local volunteers and Elissa Knox from Parks and Wildlife.

Well wishes to a longtime local

Friends of longtime local John Schurr are encouraged to send him cards and well-wishes since he was hospitalized in New York. Schurr, 85, lived in the Frisco area for 25 years, where he would ski every day.

“He’s been boating his entire life. He was an avid skier, mountain biker and loves Colorado,” friend Barbara Brokos said. “I wish him the happiest, warmest thoughts.”

Schurr moved to New York when his health started going downhill and is currently at the Stony Brook University Hospital. Cards may be mailed in the care of John Schurr to the hospital at 101 Nicolis Road, Stony Brook, NY 11794.
