Holiday Bling Fling in Basalt

Dear Editor:

On a frigid, post-storm Tuesday night, Bistro Basalt (now called Bistecca Bistro) warmly welcomed guests to the first annual Basalt Holiday Bling Fling. Put together by ETC Clothing (EveryThing Casual), the evening featured three runway shows highlighting ETC’s new fashions. Libations and appetizers were offered, live music filtered through the room, models artfully strutted the catwalk, and door prizes were raffled off. This heartfelt communal effort raised money for Growing Years Pre School in Basalt.

We are honored and humbled that so many people and businesses came out to support us. We would like to thank ETC Clothing and Bistecca Bistro for organizing and donating time, space and money, Aspen’s Model Team for providing delightful young volunteer models, and fabulous local businesses who donated to our gift bags and door prizes: Aspen Skiing Co., Two Leaves and a Bud, Edible Aspen, Total Merchant Services, Paradise Bakery, Midland Baking Company, Barbro Pilch, D.D.S., The Canteen, Express Yourself and Salon Tullio. Finally and most importantly, we’d like to thank all those patrons who braved the roads and the cold to come in and support us.

Erika Leavitt and Cara Borchers

Growing Years School, Board of Treasurers
