The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

 In Uncategorized

There are many reasons that we love the weeks that stretch from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.  The mountains open for skiing, gatherings with friends and family abound, and at the Buddy Program we are reminded what makes the Roaring Fork Valley such a special place.  On Thanksgiving Day, Aspen’s Hickory House once again selected the Buddy Program as the recipient of its donation-based Thanksgiving Dinner.  Hundreds of community members were treated to an incredible meal and were asked to donate $5—totaling in over $4,000 in donations!  A week and a half later, we welcomed over 120 Buddy Pairs to the Little Nell for a Gingerbread House Workshop hosted by Jim Fifield and Helen DeFrance, and a wide array of sponsors (including The Little Nell, Italian Wine Merchants, Aspen Valley Hospital, Charles Cunniffe Architects, Donald Drapkin, Hansen Construction, Garfield and Hecht, the Gorsuch Family, Lorrie Wright-LaRose and Tim LaRose, Coldwell Banker/Mason Morse), Mona Look-Mazza and Tony Mazza, Bill Powers, Angie and Gary Stewart, and Wells Fargo – The Private Bank).  The houses were absolutely incredible, the pictures speak for themselves!  Finally, the Sky Hotel selected the Buddy Program as its event partner for the annual “Red Sky Party.” It featured a fashion show by Radio Boardshop as well as samples from Sky’s new winter menu, and beverages by Belvedere.  A great way to engage the new generation of philanthropists, the Red Sky Party was well attended by the Leadership Development Board and many of Aspen’s young professionals.  The Buddy Program is incredibly lucky to have the support of so many wonderful local businesses- all of which are invested in supporting our valley’s youth.
