Help house performers

Dear Editor:On Dec. 28, 29 and 30 of this year, the Aspen Youth Center is bringing an extraordinary circus event to Aspen. Cirque d’Aspen will include 17 world-class performers who have come together to amaze and inspire Aspen for three shows only. Many of the performers have performed in Cirque du Soleil and are coming together for a special show to benefit the youth center. We are very excited about this and will be offering sponsorship packets to those interested as well as selling locals tickets at discounted prices during the month of October. We will keep you posted on this through the local papers.Our main concern now is to find housing for the performers. If anyone in the Aspen/Snowmass area has a house, condo or caretaker unit with a separate entrance they would be willing to donate for free or offer for some incredible sponsorship opportunities, please let us know as soon as possible. Lodging is needed from Dec. 26-31, 2005. We are trying to get these costs covered by donation so that the proceeds all go to the Aspen Youth Center and our kids. If you have a living space you’d like to donate, or are interested in sponsorships, please give our executive director, Sarah Blangsted, a call at 544-4133. We are very excited about this event and bringing this kind of performance to the community. Please let us know if you can help in any way.Allison DailyAspen Youth Center president
