Spirit of Skiing to raise cancer funds

Aspen Times Staff Report

The Spirit of Skiing 2000 will come to Aspen on Jan. 2-23, 2000 to raise funds to battle prostate cancer.

The Spirit of Skiing has signed on Audi of America Inc. as title sponsor for the fund-raising event. It has also teamed with Newsweek.

The Spirit of Skiing was created by five-time World Cup champion and Aspen resident Kiki Cutter. The event features ski clinics with ski champions and celebrities, a race for fun, a gala dinner with a silent auction and a special benefit concert.

All net proceeds from the auction, concert and celebrity skiing race benefit the national Prostate Cancer Initiative. This is an event of WB2 Charities, an affiliate of the Robert R. McCormick Tribute Foundation. Matching funds will be provided by WB2 Charities.

“We created Audi – The Spirit of Skiing 2000 as a new and highly effective concept of a high-end corporate outing combined with fund-raising for the Prostate Cancer Initiative,” said Cutter in a prepared statement. “The event incorporates the electrifying spirit of skiing with the generosity of the spirit of giving, both of which are dear to my heart.”
