The Colorado PGA REACH Foundation continues its pursuit to recruit the best and the brightest as Trustees. Sandy King has joined the ranks, bring with her wealth of knowledge and experience, along with a love for golf. The Board, which is made up of diverse business professionals, provides the leadership to carry out the Foundation’s mission of furthering the scope of the game of golf.
“I am very excited to be a part of the PGA REACH family,” says King. “I believe in giving back and to do so with a community that has given so much to me is very special. I look forward to the journey we will share together.
Golf is one of Sandy passions – watching it, reading about it, taking lessons, practicing, playing and competing in various events. She believes there are so many valuable lessons that can be learned through playing golf at any age that carry over into everyday life. In addition, she loves having the opportunity to work alongside others to positively impact the lives of others through the game of golf.
Sandy has the attitude that if something needs to be done, she will take on the challenge. That helped mold her diverse background in her 30+ years in business—from project and people management, business development and technical sales in the telecom world, to real estate brokerage. A constant throughout Sandy’s life has been the gift of music. She has expressed her creative side as the lead singer for several different well-known local bands, playing guitar and piano, and as a songwriter of tunes for her own use. She also writes custom songs for others, including a theme song for the non-profit, UMOM, in Phoenix, and a song co-written with LPGA Tour player and Colorado Hall of Fame Inductee Lauren Howe called “Champ It Up” about the shift to a positive competitive attitude. Sandy returned to college at age 48 to pursue her dream of a music degree, graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Colorado.
Sandy and husband, Chris, have lived in Denver for most of their lives, support many organizations including Boys & Girls Clubs, Hope House, Gold Crown and The First Tee of Green Valley Ranch, and enjoy life with their 5 girls and families, including 2 grandsons and a granddaughter.
