Buddy Program a success

Dear Editor:We would like to extend a huge thank you to all the caring and generous people in our community who helped make our annual Buddy Program Ski Day a huge success this past Sunday, Feb. 13. With the generous support of various individuals and businesses in the community, we were able to offer many youth and their mentors an exciting and new opportunity.First, we would like to thank the Aspen Skiing Co. for making it all work – especially Amy Trubiroha for helping us secure the ski tickets for our Little Buddies, Carter Jones and his crew at Pro Mountain Sports for gearing up many, many people at once, and Barb for helping us coordinate a snowboard lesson.We would also like to thank all the folks at Bumps – especially Henrietta Oliver – for a wonderful lunch. It was delicious! Thank you also to Martha Grimes and Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud for your great contribution. We are so grateful for your generosity!And a huge thank you to Linda Vitti and Natasha Seedorf for your patience, time and instruction expertise. You both helped many kids have a brand-new and exciting experience and we couldn’t have done it without your commitment as volunteers!And lastly, to all the Big Buddies, thanks for coming and providing your Little Buddies with a memorable experience and a great time. You are truly the most important part of our program, and you are making such a difference by spending valuable time with our local youth. Your kindness and generosity are much appreciated.We are so thankful for all the kind souls and consistent supporters from our community who care about mentoring youth and making a difference in children’s lives.Sole OweProgram Coordinatorand the Buddy Program staff
