One of the big things we support as part of the Superior Tailgating Club is giving back to the community. One of our traditions for the annual CSU game is to take the donations for food and drink and donate them to a charity.  We have raised over $2000 for charity in the last 7 years.

2014 CSU Charity Donation

For 2014 we will be raising for Mi Casa Children's Home in Baja, Mexico.  This orphanage is supported by my brother's church in Stockton, California.  My brother Scott goes to Mexico 4-6 times a year to help build the orphanage so it will be ready for children within the next year.

2013 CSU Charity Donation

Our 2013 charity benefited the Nephcure.  We raised money to support research seeking the cause of the potentially debilitating kidney disease Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and Nephrotic Syndrome, improve treatment and find a cure. For more information information:

2012 CSU Charity Donation

This year we are going to be raising money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  I was able to witness in person the fantastic work the Ronald McDonald House does worldwide.  When our dear friends daughter hurt her finger in a horrible escalator accident in Switzerland, the Ronald McDonald House gave our friends a fantastic place to stay where they could still be close to the hospital, but in a more home-like environment until their daughter had recovered enough to return to the United States.

Ronald McDonald House Charities

RMHC makes an immediate, positive impact on children’s lives through our global network of Chapters in 57 countries and regions and through our three core programs: Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald Family Room and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. We award grants to other nonprofit organizations that align with our mission to positively impact the health and well being of children. We are also committed to education. Local Chapters award thousands of scholarships each year through RMHC U.S. Scholarships to students entering college across the United States.

2011 CSU Charity Donation

Earlier this year we lost a member of our Superior Tailgating Club family, Drew Armstrong to colon cancer. Drew put in an over three year fight with cancer, but ultimately succumbed to the disease in late April. Drew left behind his wife Kerri Lehn Armstrong and two young daughters.  Drew was a fantastic father, husband and friend.  To honor Drew’s memory we are dedicating all of the funds we raise at the CU-CSU tailgate to the Cancer Support Community.  This charity not only helps those with cancer, but also other family member impacted by cancer like Drew’s daughters. 

Cancer Support Community

The mission of the Cancer Support Community is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.

The Cancer Support Community is leading the way in empowering people affected by cancer. By addressing their individual needs, linking them to a community of support, and helping them to live better lives, we are advancing the central idea of the Institute of Medicine report "Cancer Care for the Whole Patient": that social and emotional support are as important as medical care in the face of a cancer diagnosis.

From Kerri: "This picture is very special to me, it was taken 3 weeks before Drew passed.  I had a photographer come to Quinn's baptism because we did not have any pics of the 4 of us due to Drew's appearance, he hated the way he looked (he had lost almost 70 pounds).  Drew was having a really bad day and almost didn't make it to the baptism but somehow he put a smile on his face and made it there.  I am so thankful for these pictures bc they all came out fantastic and Drew actually got to see them in the ER the day I brought him to the hospital and they made him very happy.  I have some wonderful ones of just him and the girls that we will treasure forever."  

2010 CSU Charity Donation

Growing up my brother and I lived with my grandparents for a year and spent a good portion of most summers at their house in Lakewood, CO.  Grandpa Jordan would tell us stories of how he fought during WWII in Italy.  Sharing his pictures and memories of time in our history where Americans put everything aside to protect our freedom.  Even 20+ years later, those are some of my best childhood memories.

CU football great and Olympic skiing champion Jeremy Bloom started a foundation to benefit senior citizens.  Their mission is to inspire an entire generation and to create a cultural shift on how we view aging. With the belief that growing older doesn't mean you have to stop dreaming and living a life of purpose. By granting lifelong wishes to seniors who have overcome tremendous challenges in their own lives, his foundation is able to spread its inspirational stories of hope.

JBWOL's core program, the "Wish of a Lifetime Program" is to make wishes come true for low-income senior citizens. Most elderly men and women have something in their life that they have always wanted to do or see, but because the majority of their discretionary income and lifelong savings goes towards paying medical bills and other expenses, they are often not able to live out these dreams. The JBWOL foundation wish fulfillment program aims to change that, creating opportunities to ensure each of these very special wishes can come true.

2009 CSU Charity Donation

Mr Jones loved the Buffs!

As many of you know, in July we lost our beloved Golden Retriever, Mr. Jones. He was only three years old and passed due to an infectious brain disease that took him from us in only two days. Mr. Jones had been a mainstay at our tailgates in Boulder. Arriving early, roaming other tailgates, stealing sandwiches from unsuspecting victims and supporting his favorite team, the Buffs!

In his honor, all donations for the CSU game will be donated to the Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies. Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR) is an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that helps place unwanted, abandoned or surrendered Golden Retrievers into loving forever homes. GRRR was founded in 1996 and has experienced continued organizational growth while working toward the goal of caring for our breed. GRRR re-homes approximately 300 Golden Retrievers annually.
