GVH Foundation Events

Throughout the year the GVH Foundation hosts signature fundraising events at both ends of the Gunnison Valley.


Annual Golf Tournament

The Gunnison Valley Health Foundation Annual Golf Tournament takes place in the early summer at the prestigious Club at Crested Butte near the base of Mt. Crested Butte. The Robert Trent Jones II designed course covers 160 acres of pristine mountain landscape with championship quality fairways and greens, trout-filled lakes, aspen groves, and panoramic views of the majestic West Elk Mountains. This unique event features the finest local chefs providing food along the course as well as custom created libations from local establishments.

The tournament features a ball drop from the St. Mary’s and Montrose Careflight helicopter, which drops over 700 golf balls from the sky above the Club to kick off the tournament and give each player an opportunity to win $500.

All proceeds from this event go to the Gunnison Valley Health Foundation for the designated project of the year. Past events benefitted a new ambulance, staff education, mental health services, and a renovation of our Family Birth Center. The 2017 event will support the construction of Gunnison Valley Health's new senior living facility.

The Annual Golf Tournament brings the community together at the Club at Crested Butte to enjoy the magnificent setting and provide philanthropic support for Gunnison Valley Health. Come join a competitive lineup of locals, second homeowners, and first-time visitors to kick off the summer season in style!

It was a beautiful evening of community coming out to support the health system while listening to a Big Noise! A new tradition was born as the Foundation put on the biggest concert of the summer with 4-time Grammy® winner Wynonna Judd.
