OB Promotions, Inc. (OBP) has been incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in the state of Colorado.
The stated purpose of OBP is to "aid in the promotion of the Cedaredge, Colo., municipal golf course and facilities, thereby lessening the financial liability of the Town of Cedaredge. To support, promote, and to teach golf to local youth and residents."
This new entity was created by four local residents to support the local golf course and the Cedaredge community through various promotions, advertising, and events. The intent is to increase the public visibility of the golf course and the Cedaredge area and to increase the number of rounds played at the course annually by local residents as well as by folks from areas outside of Cedaredge. Promotions will be done in partnership with local businesses and area attractions.
OB Promotions, Inc. is a Section 501(c)(3) tax exempt entity so contributions from local residents and businesses are tax deductible. Collected funds will be used to fund various events and programs including classes, clinics, scholarships for local students, and golfing events for local youth and residents. Funds will also be sought to help make improvements to the golf course such as upgrading irrigation systems, adding yardage markers throughout the course, and other items that are identified which will improve the golfing experience at the course. OBP maintains a local bank account and will control all of the funds generated for the purposes stated above. Individual and business sponsorships are welcome.
