Around Aspen: Deaf Camp Benefit

MEHAt the benefit for Aspen Camp of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing are Sandi Johnston, the new director of the camp, and Joe Foreman.

Opening Night at the Crystal Palace was always the date for the annual benefit for the Aspen Camp School for the Deaf but, now that the Palace is no longer a theater, the 2009 benefit was held at Belly Up. The evening featured “Beetlemania,” and on hand to meet everyone was the camp’s new director, Sandi Johnston.

The organization recently changed its name to Aspen Camp of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

This week was festive on the mountains. The annual “Wine Party” was held yesterday at Blondie’s Cabin on the Silver Bell ski trail on Aspen Mountain. Hosts were Peter Belsky, Bill Bindley, Sid Hendricks, Ron Krajian, Walter Glass, Ed Peterson, W.T. Ray, Jim Riley, Steve Nardi, Don Crawford, Jack Crawford and Jack Cronin. The invitation this year featured Jack Cronin and his airplane.

And on March 12 “The Snowmass Picnic” was held at the Spider Sabich Center on Snowmass Mountain. Hosts for this springtime picnic were Jerry Elder, Jerry Goldman, David Grimes, Fran Hoffman, Rodney Knutson, Bill Pizzuti, Colby Sandlian, Ronald Soderling, Henry Fella, Cal Fray, John Guiltinan, Don Keltner, Dick Osur, Philip Salet, Wido Schaefer and Stan Starn.

Aspen photographer David O. Marlow is featured in the April issue of Architectural Digest magazine shooting a West Hollywood bungalow with interior design by Craig Wright. The home is owned by a Hollywood executive and has a deco flair with a very “LA Confidential” theme. David is off to Canada, Carmel and Los Angeles for other upcoming assignments.

“Save the Date” invitations have gone out for Sabrina Sadeghi and Sebastien Millecamp’s Aug. 1 wedding on Aspen Mountain. A second “French” wedding will be held Sept. 12 in Paris for friends and family who will be unable to come to Aspen. Sabrina is the daughter of Aspenites Dr. Patricia Hill and Nasser Sadeghi.

Undercurrent … So many in Aspen have spring fever, barbecueing in the backyard, sitting with faces to the sun and riding around in convertibles with the top down.
