About Sean ‘Ranch’ Lough
The SRL Foundation was started in memory of Sean, who was a dear friend, brother and son who tragically passed away in June of 2001 as a result of a mountain biking accident. In his twenty-nine years of life, Ranch accomplished more than many do in a lifetime. One of his greatest attributes was his ability to live every day to its fullest and have a good time, while focusing on accomplishing the high goals he set for himself.
Although his life and bright future were cut short, his spirit will remain in everyone he knew and, thanks to sponsors and donors like you, his legacy will provide scholarships for deserving young students. This legacy lives on as each year we throw the biggest and best Derby party in the country in order to to raise money and provide four-year scholarships to those who would otherwise not be able to attend college.
As we prepare to throw another edition of the biggest and best Derby Party in the country, we are excited to say that Sean’s life means more and more to each one of us.
Denver Derby Party – A Party with Purpose
The Denver Derby Party was started by a small group of friends as a way to help raise money for another friend, Sean “Ranch” Lough who tragically passed away. 20+ years later the Sean Ranch Lough Foundation serves a greater purpose and helps students from around the world achieve their dreams and aspirations.
Our end goal has always been to follow Sean’s lead of placing an importance on education while balancing it with fun, laughter, and excitement. His legacy lives on as each year we team up with sponsors, donors, and our guests to raise money and provide four-year scholarships to those who would otherwise not be able to attend college.
Thanks to you, we are proud to say that 100% of all proceeds are used to fund the SRL Foundation.
