BASALT ” The Fleisher Company has announced the addition of Steve Machado to the brokerage staff of its Basalt office, Fleisher HOME. Machado first came to Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley in the summer of 1976. He moved here permanently in 1978, bought a home in Basalt in 1992, and began selling real estate in 2001.

ASPEN ” Susan G. Komen for the Cure Aspen has added Maura Masters, marketing director, and Stephanie Schilling, education coordinator, to its staff.

Masters, formerly with Promotional Concepts in Carbondale, will develop marketing strategies to support fundraising and educational outreach efforts. Schilling, most recently with Advocate Safehouse in Glenwood Springs, will help directly with outreach programs.

During the last 18 years, Susan G. Komen for the Cure Aspen, one of 127 worldwide affiliates, has granted more than $4 million to fund a variety of local breast cancer programs in its tri-county service area of Pitkin, Garfield and Eagle counties from the 1-70 corridor in Silt to Vail, as well as the Roaring Fork Valley.

Up to 75 percent of funds raised by Komen Aspen remain in the local community to support breast cancer education and treatment, including free mammograms. Additional funds come from the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

In 2007, approximately 2,000 local women received low-cost or no-cost breast exams, and educational information on breast self-exam and breast health. In 2007, approximately 2,500 local women received low-cost or no-cost mammograms. An additional estimated 100 local women received low-cost or no-cost ultrasounds.

Less than 20 percent of the revenue generated by Komen Aspen is used to cover all expenses related to running events, marketing and administration.
