2017 Try Out Event Thank You

We would like to extend an enormous thank you to everyone who helped make the 2017 Try Out Event a wonderful success, with a special acknowledgement to the Colorado Firefighter Board of Directors and Try Out Event committee members for all their wonderful ideas and contributions, without which the Try Out Event would not have been as successful. We’d also like to express our appreciation to our emcee Chris Parente, all of our celebrity judges, and of course, the 24 firefighters who auditioned for a chance to appear in the 2017 calendar.

With over 800 guests in attendance, the 2017 Try Out Event raised much-needed funds and awareness for the Children’s Hospital Colorado Burn Center and Burn Camps Program.

Any event we produce would not be possible without the invaluable support of our dedicated volunteers. If you would like more information on volunteering for next year’s Try Out Event or on becoming a corporate sponsor, please contact Tim Schuetz, Executive Director, at (720) 231-2114 or

The Colorado Firefighter Calendar is a group effort and without the help and support of hundreds of great people it would not be possible.
