This one-night only show weaves dance, movement, music and story into a seamless choreographed piece. Donated fashions from high end designers to street wear lines are used as costuming for the local models as they present on trend fashion to the Aspen market. This high-energy, theatrical fashion show is a fundraiser that benefits sexual and mental health in the Roaring Fork Valley. The event includes a Live & Silent Auction, DJ After Party and Day-after Trunk Show. The trunk show will take place at Casa Tua in downtown Aspen.
Aspen Cares (formerly the Aspen AIDS Benefit) has expanded to include the Aspen Hope Center as a beneficiary. The Aspen Hope Center is a beacon of hope to those in emotional crisis and will specifically apply our raised funds to support their Individualized Intensive Outpatient Program, a wrap-around 24 hour service to individuals who are at high risk and potentially suicidal.
Remaining funds will continue to support the event’s roots in sexual health with our campaign of ‘Know Your Status – get tested for HIV.’ More specifically, funds will be distributed to local service providers, such as Aspen Community Health, who offers free rapid HIV testing, and WestCap, who provides HIV education and services to the Roaring Fork Valley. Funds will also continue to go to the sister event, Telluride AIDS Benefit (TAB), a non-profit organization that has raised over $2.1million for HIV/AIDS advocacies, NGO’s and education through out Colorado and Africa since 1994.
