Crested Butte Open

The 26th Annual Crested Butte Open

Live on August 1-2, 2021

Presented by the Katy & Kyle Miller Family Foundation | Carolyn & David Miller | Meredith & Kyle Bebee

Over the last 26 years, the Crested Butte Open (CBO) has become the premier charity event in the valley with the mission to raise funds for the Adaptive Center Sports Center. The funding generated over the years has enabled the ASC to grow into one of the best adaptive sports organizations in the world.

We are excited to announce that the 2021 Crested Butte Open will be a live event! This decision was made, after much consideration, factoring in feedback from our event committee and the Gunnison County Coronameter going to the green level (fully open) on May 28th. 

As a health and human service organization, the health of all involved with our organization is paramount. Therefore, there will be some mitigation efforts in place for these events. We will announce those efforts next week. To keep as many of our supporters as involved as possible, the Gala will be live streamed and we will provide proxy bidding on auction items.

It goes without saying that we are looking forward to seeing you back at the Lacy Arena for the Gala on August 1st, and at the Club at Crested Butte for our golf tournament on August 2nd. Whether you choose to participate in person or virtually, your support will make a big difference in the lives of people with disabilities.

From a mental health perspective, we all took a significant hit this year. This week has been a spark of light in the darkness. It lit our world like the sun, you knocked it out of the park.

–Kimery Dudas, Founder of the Expedition School who visited in December 2020 with 4 visually impaired and blind young adults
