LIUB Aspen was hosted by Dr. Jennifer Berman from TV's The Doctors and Johnny Moseley Olympic Gold Medal winning freestyle skier and included music from Project M out of L.A. The rowdy live auction raised plenty of gelt.
The Aspen ladies always look striking in Blue and LIUB Aspen proves it every year. Decked out in cocktail attire the fully VIP crowd dined on a sumptuous selection of vittles. The seafood tower is always a fan favorite. Lobbys, oysters, huge crab legs ...lets just say A. Party hit it early and often. Most of the revelers headed straight for the open bar as the good times started immediately.
The name change from Extreme Sports Camps to Ascendigo is an interesting choice. Maybe its a tax thing? I for one, actually read the program which explained the logic behind Ascendigo. The new name does not change the fact that the organization still provides experiential and community based learning that has an extremely positive impact on the lives of those with autism. I was excited to learn about "The Yellow House" in Carbondale which houses several young adults who live with autism. Autism now effects 1 in 68 children which is a striking fact. It is the fastest growing childhood disability. So HUGE thanks to those who contributed and partied with a purpose. Click to learn more about Ascendigo/Extreme sports Camp. and Autism Speaks.
In consultation with Dr. Berman...and I concur. Light it Up Blue Aspen is the real deal. Get your tix for next year because this party is getting bigger, better and bluer.
