Giving Back to Ken Rose

Help after a disaster.

Ken Rose is 63, and a long time adult league player in Colorado Springs. In the summer of 2012, Ken lost his home and most of his belongings in the Waldo Canyon Fire, including all of his hockey equipment.

During our annual golf tourney called “Tee It Up for Dawg Nation”, a special putting contest was held to win a notebook computer. For ten dollars, a player could putt with a hockey stick, and the closest to the hole would win the prize. The money that was gathered from the promotion was given to Ken, and he was able to put around $2000 toward his new equipment.

This idea was a little bit different from the usual scope of what we do in Dawg Nation, but after hearing Ken’s story, we decided to find a way to help a good man in his time of need. We now have a whole new group of friends in Colorado Springs, as Ken has spread the word of Dawg Nation.
