Haselden Construction is A Great Builder in large part because of its commitment to community and culture of giving.

The Denver Post recently shed a little more light on our company’s philanthropy with an interesting business profile that includes mention of The Moderators, a band whose founding members include Haselden’s Chairman Ed Haselden.

Ed plays guitar in the band, which came together around 2008 at a gathering of the Young Presidents Organization. The band’s members are chief executive officers, board presidents and company founders.

The band’s goals are having fun and raising money for charity. The Moderators have played Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheater and smaller venues throughout the state. A May 6 show at the Ogden Theater in Denver raised nearly a half-million dollars for cancer research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. In eight years, the band has raised about $4.5 million for charity. Members like Ed don’t charge charities a penny to perform. Instead, they just invite their friends out for a good time and encourage everyone to donate money.
