Thanks for a homecoming to remember

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Aspen High School Booster Club I would like to thank everyone who helped make the Aspen High School homecoming and the Game for the Cure such overwhelming successes.

Aspen homecoming week could not have happened without Mark Lampe and the Maroon Creek Club, Randy Ready, Nancy Lesley, Steve “Jaws” Jaworski and the city of Aspen, Aspen Volunteer Fire Department, Penny Richey and Balloon Affairs, Jeff White and Aspen Kettle Corn, Aspen Caterers, Paradise Bakery, KSPN, the AHS Student Senate and Student Booster Club.

The Game for the Cure was a cooperative effort between the Aspen High School Booster Club, the Basalt High School Booster Club and Komen of Aspen to raise funds to fight breast cancer. Special thanks to organizers Beth Mobelian, Ron Morehead and Logan Hood. Thanks to announcers David Bach and Bruce Johnson. Thank you to KSPN and The Aspen Times for their coverage of the event.

After expenses, the event raised more than $6,500 thanks to generous donations from The Lester and Sue Smith Foundation, Alpine Bank Aspen, Basalt and Snowmass, Greg and Ripley Thomas, David Guthrie, Pinons Restaurant and Meridian Jewelers. We look forward to continuing the tradition of a Game for the Cure next year in Basalt!

Thank you to the Rotary Club of Aspen and the Western Slope College Fair for their donations of soda and water to the Aspen High School Booster Club.

Come support your Aspen Skiers football team at 7 p.m. this Friday as they take on the Coal Ridge Titans. Aspen remains unbeaten in conference play. Girls volleyball plays the Coal Ridge Titans beginning at 4 p.m. this Saturday at AHS.

Again, thank you to everyone who attended homecoming and the Game for the Cure; your support made them both memorable events.
