Thanks from the Buddy Program
July 10, 2009
The Buddy Program would like to acknowledge all those who contributed to the success of our two major fundraising events last weekend – the 10th anniversary of Boogie’s Bash for the Buddies and the 28th year of Boogie’s Diner Buddy 5-Mile Race.
The generosity of spirit and giving is certainly alive in Aspen as demonstrated by the amazing support of our gala patrons, race participants, event coordinators and volunteers, restaurant contributors, corporate sponsors and Big Buddies. We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you!
We would also like to extend a special thank-you to all of our wonderful board members and national council who are instrumental in The Buddy Program’s ability to help hundreds of our community’s children and their families year after year.
New this year, our event was produced by Think Big Aspen Events, whose creativity and professionalism brought our annual fundraising gala to a new level. Their hard work and eye for detail made our 10th gala the most exciting yet. What’s more, we launched our first junior board, a collection of six young professionals who tapped into their social and professional networks, extending invitations to upward of 600 people for a limited number of tickets (100). The result? A fantastic party that lasted past midnight and incorporated the next generation of Big Buddies, patrons and volunteers.
We are overwhelmed with gratitude by the supporters of The Buddy Program who continue to help us strengthen our community by guiding and inspiring youth through mentoring. There are more local children in need of our services now than ever before. Thanks to your help, we will reach each and every one of them.
