Vail Daily letter: Thanks for all the help

Colleen Gray and Susan OgilvieVail, CO,

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all of the participating businesses and volunteers who helped last Saturday with the event Paint the Town Red. This event would not have been possible without the good will and hard work of many people who braved the inclement weather and raised money and awareness for The Literacy Project. We are so appreciative to Jessica Fisher and Tara Picklo of Tickled Pink Productions, who worked so hard to pull off the event with grace and poise. We could not have done it without our wonderful sponsors Slifer Smith & Frampton, Paradigms Restaurant, Broadway Liquors, and the Brush Creek Saloon. Our hosts at Yeti’s Grind and Everyday Outfitters were so awesome and generous with their space. Thank you to Greg Schwartz and Highline Entertainment for your help with the event. Thanks to our musicians, Adam and Jenna of Hardscrabble and DJ Miles. We also would like to thank the owners and staff at Everyday Outfitters, InKahoots, Mountain Pedaler, The Kind Bikes and Skis, Alpine Ambiance, The Nearly Everything Store, Inyodo Martial Arts and The Cottage of Well-Being, who contributed their time and merchandise to make this event one of a kind. Thank you to the stylists at Fusion Hair Studio, Adagio, Peridot, and Soul, as well as the makeup artists who made the models look awesome! Certainly, we want to give our models and our core of volunteers a huge thank you. You were awesome! Of course, thank you to all of the local businesses who contributed to our awesome silent auction. It was great! Lastly, thanks to the Vail Daily, the Vail Mountaineer and Wendy Griffith for great publicity. What a awesome team that made a super event- look for it again next year!
