Letter: Anniversary auction a success

Thank you for making Anderson Ranch’s 50th-anniversary Art Auction and Community Picnic a wonderful success!

To all who participated Saturday, Anderson Ranch would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you. We all had a wonderful time enjoying the art, the music and the hot dogs, even though some of us may have gotten a little wet during our midafternoon downpour! In spite of the rain, we welcomed our largest crowd in years — the art-loving community of the Roaring Fork Valley — to share in the ranch spirit and enjoy the art and the day. You made the success of this event possible, helping us to exceed our fundraising goal for Anderson Ranch programs and scholarships during our special 50th year!

We would like to recognize the generosity of our event sponsors: Sotheby’s, Aspen Magazine, The Aspen Times, Frame Center, Jay’s Valet, Paddle8, Roaring Fork Beer Co., Rock Canyon Coffee and Suerte Tequila. Thank you also to the town of Snowmass Village and Aspen Skiing Co. for their support.

Finally, we would like to thank all of the artists, galleries and members of the Anderson Ranch family that contributed works to the auctions and the generous volunteers, staff and interns who truly made this event a success.

Nancy Wilhelms

Executive director, Anderson Ranch Arts Center
