Great time at Great Match

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:

Isn’t it grand when people can have fun and help others at the same time?! We at Mountain Regional Housing are grateful to all who supported “The Great Match Wine and Micro-brew Tasting” April 16.

The extraordinary selections can all be found at Catherine Store Wine & Liquor, who hosted and sponsored this first annual fund raiser. The Roaring Fork Club graciously co-hosted the event.

Heartfelt thanks to all who participated, including event sponsors American National Bank, Rainy Day Designs, Alpine Bank, Land Title Co., Liberty Home Loans, US Bank, Vectra Bank, A4 Architects, Stewart Title and the Property Shop. Thanks also to auctioneer/musician Twirp Anderson and the jazz duo of Marty Martinez and Billy Milo.

Our official thank you ad will list the many others who donated time, gourmet food, wine, microbrew and numerous auction items for a delightful, successful evening.

The proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Mountain Regional Housing Corp., whose programs include free Homebuyer Education Workshops every month (bilingual), Downpayment Assistance ($400k Revolving Loan Fund) and Nonprofit Community Housing Development from Aspen to Parachute.

Special thanks to everyone who significantly helped the people we serve while having a great time at the Great Match. You are appreciated!
