Letter: Best year ever

Well, we just finished up with my 18th year hosting the Hickory House Ribs annual Thanksgiving meal. We raised $4,500 for the Buddy Program with everyone’s generous donations — our best year ever. I would like to specially thank the following people and businesses:

My staff (Hickory House), the best staff in Aspen.

U.S. Food Service’s Neal Henley.

The Aspen Times.

Paradise Bakery.

Main Street Bakery.

The Luu brothers and their families.

Chris King and his family.

Aspen Catering.

Alsco Linen.

Lisa Joe at All Things Sweet.

And all the volunteers.

Thank you all for helping to put on this great community event. We hope to see you all next year.

Paul Dioguardi

Owner, Hickory House Ribs
