GrassRoots golf thanks

Dear Editor:

Recently, GrassRoots TV12 held its second annual Free Range Open Golf (FROG) tournament fundraiser at the Snowmass Club golf course. We had a full field, and we’d like to thank everyone who participated in making this tournament a huge success. It was a beautiful day, and play was both fun and competitive.

GrassRoots TV12 has over 2,000 studio visitors a year, which includes service to over 135 local nonprofits. Unfortunately, with all that use by our community, our equipment has become outdated and in need of replacement. The funds we raised at this FROG event will help replace the outdated equipment, which will allow us to continue to fulfill our mission of providing television access to anyone in this community.

A big thanks to our sponsors: Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Aspen Club and Spa, Aspen Daily News, Bishop Plumbing and Heating, Bob and Renee Bowden, Elk Mountain Motors, Frias Properties, John Olson Builders, KSNO, Lipkin Warner Design and Planning, Rasmussen Construction, Resort Quest, Sandy’s Office Supply and Timberline Bank.

Thanks to the great Snowmass Club golf course staff: Ken Everett, John Wiltgen, the grounds crew and the rest of the very helpful people who made this fundraiser possible.

Thanks to our prize donors: Ace Hardware, Belmont Clean, Cantina, Clark’s Market, Great Divide Fencing, the Green Spot, Isberian Rug Co., Jerry Bovino, Of Grape and Grain, Peak Electronics, Peter Lik Fine Art Photography, Randy Placeres’ Aspen Culinary Solutions, Richie Cohen, the Roaring Fork Club, Soul Impact Images and Taster’s Pizza.

This was a great event; we’re already looking forward to next year’s tournament!
