Watch this VIDEO with Sam Boik from Mile High Living  to learn more about UMPS CARE Charities and why this tournament matters to the Denver community. 

We are so excited for the all-new UMPS CARE Golf Tournament in Colorado

during the MLB All-Star Break!

Join a great crew of MLB umpires and network with members of the Denver business community at the beautiful Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course in Castle Rock, for a great day on the links for a great cause in UMPS CARE Charities!

Proceeds from this tournament will support the local Colorado community. UMPS CARE Charities provides annual visits to Children’s Hospital Colorado, delivering Build-A-Bear joy to young patients, in addition to inviting youth-based organizations and military families for VIP experiences at Colorado Rockies games.

UMPS CARE also provides college scholarships to children adopted later in life. One scholarship recipient recently graduated from Colorado Christian University, and another recipient is in her freshman year of college in Denver!

Vitalik Walle was only 4 when he left an abusive home and ended up in an orphange in Ukraine. He was adopted at 15 by a family in Denver and with the support of the UMPS CARE Charities All-Star College Scholarship Program, he was able to graduate from Colorado Christian University in 2022. 

Caroline Mackey is a freshman at Colorado Christian University. Like Vitalik, she was adopted later in life. Each scholarship recipient receives $10,000 annually to support their college education in addition to ongoing mentorship and support from Major League Baseball umpires and their families. 

Major League Baseball umpire Paul Emmel, who lives in the Denver area, has participated in our annual hospital visits at Children’s Hospital Colorado the last three years! At each visit, umpires deliver 100 Build-A-Bear stuffed toys, outfits, activity books and more to children undergoing treatment.

To date, UMPS CARE has provided more than 21,000 Build-A-Bear furry friends to children in hospitals across the country and in Canada.
