Skating for a cause

Dear Editor:

I am so thankful to be part of a community and a sport, which are willing to give their energy, time and talents for the cause of cancer research and assisting cancer patients.

At 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 22, the city of Aspen is hosting a Summer Ice Skating Show and Barbecue to raise money for the “Shining Stars” organization in Aspen as well as the “Taussig Cancer Center,” located in Cleveland.

I would like to thank the staff at the Aspen Recreation Center, skating director Elaine Kozel, the recreation director Tim Anderson, Revolutions Skating Club, guest performer and former Olympian Caryn Kadavy, as well as all of the skaters, coaches and parents who are volunteering their gifts to produce such a great event. It is so wonderful that skaters of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to share their passion for ice skating, both figure and hockey, for such a great cause.

We hope to see everyone at the Aspen Recreation Center on Aug. 22 for an evening of fun, family entertainment and a chance to support our local “Shining Stars” organization.

Michelle Hocknell
