Exciting times for Aspen Young Professionals

Dear Editor:On Thursday, Dec. 8, the Aspen Young Professionals Association hosted its ninth annual holiday party and charity fundraiser at the newly renovated St. Regis Aspen Resort hotel.With about 200 of the valley’s young professionals in attendance, the party was a huge success! A huge thank-you to our 2011 sponsors of the organization – Community Banks of Colorado (gold sponsor), Garfield & Hecht PC (silver sponsor), Obermeyer Asset Management Co. and Merrill Lynch (bronze sponsors). Without these businesses, we would not be able to plan and organize more than a dozen annual events for our members. We would also like to thank the team at the St. Regis for being an event sponsor and making the whole event run smoothly, start to finish. Lastly, thank you to the many local businesses who donated to our drawing. We had more than 30 prizes to give away and raised just under $1,600 for the Roaring Fork Family Resource Centers. Stay tuned for 12 exciting events in 2012 from AYPA, centered around business development, community involvement and networking. And most of all, thank you to our committed diverse membership. Happy holidays from AYPA!Erin Robinson, Virginia Frischkorn and Steve Sand On behalf of the AYPA Board
