Roxanne Willsky and Kris Ferguson took the photographs for the Animal House dinner-dance held recently by the Aspen Education Foundation (AEF) and they gave me so many pictures that I will run some more this week. Partygoers went dressed in collegiate attire and danced to The Twist. AEF is an organization that helps fund programs in the Aspen public schools that are not included in the annual budget.

Sandie is the 2004 Rolex/IGFA Inshore champion in the fly-fishing division. The three-day Inshore championship was held in Florida with competitors fishing with a different guide each day. Sandie has fly-fished her way around the United States and a good chunk of the globe in places like Alaska, Chile and Scotland.

On June 15 the magazine will host its summer party at the St. Regis, honoring the winners. The summer issue of the magazine seems to have the heads of all the major nonprofits on its masthead.
