The fee for this years’ tournament is $250 per golfer.  We look forward to seeing you again this year.”

Who are Buffs4Life?

In 2005, a group of former Buffs, who were an integral part of the turnaround in CU’s football fortunes in the mid 1980’s, became aware that one of their teammates, Anthony Weatherspoon (Spoon), had been diagnosed with leukemia. His prognosis was bleak and the gravity of the illness hit his family hard in many aspects, including financially. As the burden of medical costs overwhelmed his family, his friends and teammates wanted to help.

The idea of establishing an organization predicated on Buffs helping Buffs in need was born. Spoon’s reputation as being a hardnosed and powerful fullback is synonymous with CU’s return to greatness, but his influence off the field is his greatest legacy. Even though Spoon lost his battle to leukemia later that year, his spirit lives on in the CU Football family. The Buffs4Life Foundation is ready to help those who have worn the Black in Gold in times of need.
Buffs4Life means just that. You are a Buff for life and not just for the four years you wore the uniform. It is a great honor for all our board members and for those who participate in our cause to be a part of something that brings our community, the University of Colorado, and the Buff family closer together.
We will continue to support and honor Spoon’s family each year and reach out to other Buffs in their time of need. We will be committed to supporting them shoulder to shoulder through their struggles.  Buffs4Life is also dedicated to extending our support to the community by supporting children as part of the Denver Safe House program and giving back to the CU athletic department to support current CU student athletes, especially the football program.
Thank you again for your support!
Go Buffs!

Breakfast begins at 8:30
