Tauers – Honorary Chairs – CDBF

We are so proud of former Mayor and First Lady Paul & Kate Tauer, Founders of the Partnership!  They were recently named Honorary Chairs of the upcoming Colorado Dragon Boat Festival, slated for July 19th and 20th at Sloan’s Lake Park. They are beyond deserving of the honor, having had the vision over 20 years ago to connect in a tangible way to the Asian/Pacific businesses and communities in Aurora, CO.  Through the years, they have remained active as leaders and continue to build relationships with the Aurora Asian/Pacific Community Partnership — Kate remains on the Steering Committee to date — and with Friends of the greater Asian Pacific American communities. The Aurora Small Business Development Center, staff to the Partnership, adds a resounding YES! to this recognition by the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival (www.cdbf.org/about/honorary-chair)! Kate Tauer is pictured here in a beautiful traditional dress from the Philippines. Note, too, that the festival lineup for performers, races and marketplace is set.  Check the full schedule:...
