Be prepared to be delighted and awed, as spectacle and fun come together at this vintage circus themed Bash:

  • Hosted by the Ultimate Ringmaster, Lenny “Boogie” Weinglass, at his stunning Merry-Go Ranch overlooking the majestic mountain views of Aspen, Colorado.
  • Honoring Angie and Gary Stewart for their spectacular support of the Buddy Program and the youth in our community.
  • Outside under the Big Top, the evening begins at 6:00 pm with our signature Taste of Aspen featuring a dozen of Aspen’s top chefs and cocktail mixologists, and one of the best Silent Auctions of the year! Feel the magic up close at a seated dinner, a brief program and a Live Auction. Let your freak flag fly with dancing to Live Music by MarchFourth!
  • Get in the act! Vintage circus theme attire encouraged!

Come one, Come all to the Greatest Party of the Summer!

Annually attended by over 500 patrons and philanthropists, the Bash is a great celebration of the Buddy Program and the over 660 youth, families and volunteer Big Buddies throughout the Roaring Fork Valley that we serve through our youth mentoring programs. This evening typically raises $700,000 or more in one night which is nearly two thirds of our annual operating budget, thanks to the generosity and support of our many donors! This event will sell out, so don’t delay. Buy your tickets today!
