Thanks for contributing to scholarship

Dear Editor:

With great pleasure, we wish to announce that the recipient of the Kate Keenan Art Scholarship at Basalt High School is Sophia Clark. Some of the monies for the award came from the benefit movie showing of “Paint Your Wagon” this past weekend.

A huge thank-you goes to all who came forward to support the benefit.

Especially, we wish to show our gratitude to Annie Schwener, Heather Nemiec and Maggie Everett for giving their time and talents in performing for us; Tommy Sweeney and Lorey Esquibel for running the movie; Basalt Middle School for donating the space and custodial staff; the Roaring Fork School District for the liability insurance; and the Basalt Lions Club for paying the film licensing fee. We also wish to thank the following businesses for their silent auction donations: Bella Mia Restaurant, Blue Creek Grill, Butch’s Lobster Bar, Camp Chip-A-Tooth, Canteen Coffeehouse, Cut Salon, Glenwood Caverns, Great Divide Music Store, Heirlooms Consignment, Movieland, Timbo’s Pizza, Town Center Booksellers, Two Rivers Restaurant, Wells Fargo Bank Basalt and Wyly Arts Center. And thanks to all of you who gave advice, encouragement and help along the way and contributed directly to the scholarship.

Bob and Susan Keenan
