THE PARTY The 12th annual Vince Gill & Amy Grant Gala and Golf Classic for Challenge Aspen kicked off July 27 in The St. Regis Aspen Resort’s ballroom, as more than 450 supporters of the Snowmass-based nonprofit came out for the fundraiser, which included a cocktail reception; three-course dinner; and concert with Gill, Grant, country music artist Holly Williams and her husband, Kings of Leon guitarist Chris Coleman. The next morning, the action switched to the Snowmass Club golf course, as some 125 duffers, including the gala’s headliners, hit the links. THE GUESTS Scott Kraemer, Don Dwyer, Houston Cowan, Jay Israel THE HIGHLIGHTS The golf tournament was no ordinary game of 18 holes. Each stop on the expansive course had booths set up by local, regional and national sponsors, which offered refreshing libations like an Aspen Brewing Company IPA, to-go salads from Mawa’s Kitchen and other snacks, and accessories including a bag of tees and a ball from Bogner. The day culminated with a party on the deck of the Black Saddle Bar & Grille, with tunes from musician and Challenge Aspen ski instructor Rich Ganson. –Photos by Catherine Aeppel
