Around Aspen: Summer events
August 27, 2008
This summer of 2008 was so full of social events that it will take me all through the fall to work them into columns so keep watching for your event.In late July, The Aspen Club & Spas Tuesdays with Michael event featured a Chris Klug Foundation donor awareness celebration. Aspen Club & Spa owner Michael Fox introduced Chris, who after a liver transplant went on to earn an Olympic medal in snowboarding. Special honoree was former Aspenite and Lt. Gov. of Colorado Nancy Dick, who, while in the governors office, started the organ donor program in Colorado. Coming with Nancy to the event was her daughter Margot Dick of Seattle, her son Justin Dick-Neals and his family of Denver, and Denverite Annette Tillemann-Dick, who is the widow of Timber Dick, another of Nancys children who was killed in an automobile crash last winter on Floyd Hill just outside Denver. Several of Annettes and Timbers 11 children also attended. Burberry Aspen manager Michelle Broser and hostesses Janet OGrady, Debbie Chazen, Isabella Dalenson, Nancy Magoon, Jeanne Greenberg-Rohatyn and Debra Scholl entertained a group of Aspen women at the Little Nell with a luncheon and preview of Burberrys autumn styles. The models in the autumn attire walked amongst the tables so the guests could study the new fashions.The Great Gatsby summertime party returned with an afternoon of cocktails, luncheon, and everyone dressed in the styles of the 1920s and 1930s. The party was held on the lawn of the Wheeler-Stallard House, the mansion that is home to the Aspen Historical Society. Hosts for the gala were Dick Bulkeley, Kendall Chen, Greg Erwin, Jerry Goldman, Don Keltner, John Provine, George Gracis, David Grimes, Kyle Boyd, Fred Ayarza, Bob West and Kent Shodeen. Undercurrent … This weekend is the grand wind-down of summer 2008 with Jazz Aspen Snowmass, the Old Timers parties at Bumps at Buttermilk, and many garden parties around town.
