Dog lovers united

Dear Editor:

This past Tuesday, Oct. 23, the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) held a fundraiser at the Double Dog Pub in Aspen. The event was a great success, and we have lots of people who made this happen. We would like to thank them and let the community know how much they are appreciated.

Eric Ley of Green Mountain Private Chef, Adam Gordon of the Maroon Creek Club, Chef Lee of the Double Dog Pub and Clark’s Market provided yummy appetizers that kept everyone fed all night. Colorado Whiskey, Flying Dog Brewery and Jeff Walker of Summit Wine Distributing donated the alcohol that kept the crowd happy. Tom Russell and Dan Sheridan generously gave their time and played music for the entire evening. We had door prizes donated by CB Paws, Barking Beauties, Snuggle Me and the Double Dog. A grand raffle was held for prizes that were very generously donated by the Hotel Jerome, JAS and Steve Mundinger. We would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped everything come together the night of the event. Clancy even came in on his night off and donated his time bartending and a portion of his tips!

The community really came out in full force to support us! ARF is a great organization that helps homeless animals in the valley. We loved telling Aspen about what we do and why we do it. We were even able to bring one of our great rescue dogs, Bailey, who socialized with everyone all night!

Last but not least, the event could not have taken place without the amazing generosity of Bob and Cindy Glowacki, owners of the Steak Pit and Double Dog. It’s no secret to anyone who has been in their restaurants that they are animal lovers, and they bent over backwards to make sure that ARF had a successful fundraiser. We are so grateful!

Ashley Reynolds and Marie Crum, event organizers
