VAIL – Rumor has it that the Vail Valley Medical Center Volunteer Corps’ spring luncheon and accompanying Neiman Marcus Fashion Show was a great hit. I wouldn’t know, as anyone who has ever organized such an event can understand – when you’re behind the scenes playing hostess, it’s tough to tell.Chef Sean Cavanaugh of the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort served a fresh and healthy gazpacho and lump crab meat, organic chicken breast and the fresh fruit martini with rum sabayon. Lunch was followed by an upbeat and fun exhibition of spring fashions with Neiman’s own models.

The silent auction received huge kudos from the guests, with items from a week at Rancho La Puerta Spa that sold for around $5,000 down to manicures at $20. Sandy Jacaruso and her team – Bonnie Sims, Suzana Warnock, Liz Stern and Dottie Gould – managed admirably, and co-chair Stacy Gunderson managed last minute details with Neiman Marcus, particularly in the absence of co-chair Magda Vossler, who was spending much needed time away with family after the loss of her spouse, Dick.Sponsors WestStar Bank, Ellen and David Mitchell, Alexandra Linn, the Sonnenalp Foundation, Sonnenalp Real Estate, Ellen Fetterolf, Sue Sweeney, Stacy Mengedoth and Suzi Perozzi received special gifts from Christel Dikeman and Nancy Sagar of Neiman’s. The boutique reflected our mountain lifestyle, and Neiman’s was able to include prices for most every budget. Sales were ringing up at record speed, and for every charge opened that day, Neiman’s donated $10 to the Shaw Regional Cancer Center.
