WOW. That was fun. Saturday night was the very succesful Dancing with the Mountain Stars fundraiser for Flight for Life. The Arapahoe Basin crew showed up in force. There was a big last minute scramble for ties and evening gowns allowing them to meet the dress code. But that is our style. After Keystone served a great dinner there was an intense and moving tribute to the Flight for Life Team. Then nine Summit County locals had the honor of dancing with Kim DelGrosso's proffessional team of dancers cutting the rug to disco, tango, rumba, and more styles.
There are so many people to thank I am afraid I will leave someone out. Thanks to Deb Edward's entire team from the Hospital Foundation that organized the event. Thanks to Pam McCain who kept asking me to dance, even thought I said "NO" 20 times. Thanks to the 8 other local dancers, Cathy Carleton, Rolando Cuadrado, John Buhler, Erin Hay, Katha Jenkins, Maureen Maledon, David Preaus, and Patty Theobald. Finally, two very special thanks go first, to Abrea DelGrosso who had the patience and courage to actually dance with me in public and second, to Deb Swartz who spent nearly 3 months teaching and coaching me through the Cha Cha.
A-Basin was proud to be part of the event. The evening was a blast. Don't miss it next year.
