The Aspen Hope Center
The mission of the Aspen Hope Center is to extend a beacon of hope to those in emotional crisis. In addition, the center offers a continuum of comprehensive care while working to decrease the stigma of mental illness. Their objective is to provide expert clinical care, public education, and outreach.
Year after year, Aspen Cares creates a unique performance, that has been called the social and theatrical event of the season. The event, of course, benefits the Aspen Hope Center. Above all, the team melds modeling, movement and dance to tell a story.
The show would not be possible, without the almost 100 volunteers that create the experience. A huge thank you to the Aspen Hope Center and their supporters, for all their hard work and dedication. Thank you to Kendra Lauren Styling , Kimberly Carlson and Vivian Blizzard for their talents in hair and make-up. Many thanks to the Black Box Theater for the rehearsal space and the Belly Up Aspen for their generous contribution and professional services. In addition, thanks to the Caribou Club, Casa Tua Aspen and Mark Hunt for their charitable donation of venue space.
Finally, thank you to the press: Aspen Magazine, Aspen Times and Aspen Daily News. Thanks to the very talented Jeremiah Hutchens for his stunning videography, and Casey Nay for his memorable graphic design. Lastly, to Jessica Charles for managing the models, Amanda Carlson for her vivid choreography, Ramona Bruland for her passion and Katy Parnello for her creative genius.
