Live Music: Groove to the beats of live music performed by Tyree Woods. Tyree Woods is an award winning singer songwriter as well as founder of the SoulGrass band Buffalo Commons. Born and Raised in Michigan, he transplanted to Colorado by way of the US ARMY in 2006. As a highly decorated Combat soldier Tyree is a veteran of both love and war with 8 years of service including 2 combat tours. Upon being injured during his last tour in 2012 Tyree was medically retired, and moved to the Yampa valley, where he reconnected with his life long passion of music and songwriting.

The man behind the mile-wide smile is making real soul magic happen. Armed with a desire to share his story set to the tone of inspiration and hope, what Tyree is doing for our country now, his new mission, is reminding everyone of simple truths and doing it in a way that is inclusive, fortifying, and easily shared while being set to great music and pouring forth from an endless wellspring built out of experience.

Featured Athlete: Francesco Magisano, our esteemed guest speaker, is an athlete, who happens to be totally blind, racing and working for Achilles International, a leading adaptive running nonprofit . He was diagnosed with a form of early childhood eye cancer called retinoblastoma and had low vision for the first 15 years of his life. In high school his vision suddenly deteriorated and he went completely blind over the span of a few weeks. Fast forward to the present and he’s been on five national podiums for cycling and triathlon, placed second at the Tokyo Paralympic cycling trials for the 30K TT, placed second at the Boston Half Marathon in the Para Division, and continues to race many different marathons and triathlons. He likes to hang out with the folks at TASP and shred the gnar in his spare time.

Light Fare: Indulge in a delectable selection of light fare, provided by Telluride Ski & Golf Club chefs, perfectly complementing the evening’s festivities.

Emeritus Pinot Noir: A glass of award winning Emeritus Pinot Noir is provided for each attendee. Elevate your tasting experience with the exquisite flavors of Emeritus Pinot Noir.
