Vail Symposium hits record numbers for attendance, offers ‘Vail vacation’ raffle (letter)
August 3, 2018
The Vail Symposium, one of the oldest nonprofit organizations in the valley (48 years!), had a record-setting attendance this week at the Sebastian Hotel, when Ambassador Dennis Ross and Greg Dobbs presented the program "Understanding the Mess in the Middle East."
If you haven't attended a program for a while, you may want to visit the website to see the schedule for the remaining months of summer. The Symposium strives to continually up their game by bringing world-class speakers to our community who offer diverse, thought-provoking programs throughout the summer and winter season — and it shows!
The recent success of the Symposium can be attributed to several factors. Kris Sabel, the executive director, along with a very dedicated staff and volunteers, have committed themselves to creating an intellectual body much revered and sought after in our valley. The Symposium helps to round out the many cultural opportunities that fill this community.
Once again this year, the Vail Symposium is offering an incredible opportunity to win a vacation in Vail. Your support of this raffle helps the Symposium continue its presence here in Vail. This raffle ends Sunday, Sept. 9, and includes six nights at The Four Seasons, including spa treatments and daily lift tickets for two, along with five restaurant gift cards to Vail's finest restaurants. There's even more included in this raffle package, which you can access on our website, vailsymposium.org.
I am proud to be a part of this organization, helping to create an institution so vital to our community.
Dr. Kathy Palakow-Kimmel
