Another fundraiser at Aspen Chapel

Dear Editor:

The 2012 Aspen Chapel FUNraiser brought our wonderful community together in such a special way that one would be remiss not to thank and thank again all those involved. The FUNraiser is an annual benefit for the Aspen Chapel and this year was a celebration of 43 years of the chapel as a community resource and the 35-year service – and counting – of the Rev. Gregg Anderson.

If you were able to attend, we feel sure you will agree that it was an exciting and vibrant party, particularly because of our gracious and generous party hosts, Lexie and Robert Potamkin.

This year, there were two parties in one: an elegant riverside dinner party for the adults and an adjoining, professionally supervised party for children. This made it possible for more families to take part in the festivities.

A special thank-you to Oscar, of Miami Fitness, whose team of bus drivers, DJs, glitter “tattoo” artists, hula hoopers, along with a supply of delicious mac-n-cheese had some adults raiding the kids party! It was heart-warming to see all the generations having fun. The evening was a true “Rocky Mountain High.” Most of all, we were deeply moved by the terrific turnout and grateful to be able to thank the community for more than four decades of support for the Aspen Chapel and to Anderson for his tireless service in keeping the chapel’s founders’ mission alive.

We also express our deepest thanks to the more than 35 area businesses that generously donated wonderful auction items, the many benefactors and contributors who keep the chapel a vital force in our community, the Aspen Chapel administrative board, Board of Trustees and National Council who provide thoughtful leadership, and the guests who made the party a whole lot of fun. We appreciate your continued support and great enthusiasm.

Your friendship and prayers keep the Aspen Chapel moving forward in its mission to promote an open and progressive theology, spiritual enrichment and peace through interfaith engagement in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond.
