60 SUNSET DR - BASALT, CO
Join us at the Woody Creek Distillery at their new facility in Basalt. We are doing a special second event this November to replace our Farm to Table event in October that was unfortunately canceled. This will be a great event with a tour of the operations, a welcome cocktail and talk from the owner, and a tasting of their various liquors paired with some inspired creations from Craft Catering.
DECEMBER 4TH - MOUNTAIN CHALET
Dawn your favorite ugly sweater and bring your best cheesy holiday spirit... it's time for the annual AYPA holiday party! This year we will be celebrating winter-wonderland-style at the Aspen mountain Chalet. We'll have a dance floor, DJ Stan on the turntables, and Sociallight Photo Booth will be capturing magic moments under the mistletoe.
ASPEN YOUNG PROFESSIONALS ASSOCIATION
Aspen Young Professionals Association (AYPA) was formed in early 2003 by a group of nine young professionals living and/or working in Aspen who wanted to network with other young professionals in the Aspen community.
One of the goals of the group is to help recruit and retain a young, vibrant professional community in Aspen the surrounding area. The high cost of living and limited opportunities for professionals in the Aspen has contributed to what is often referred to as "brain drain" where educated, young professionals migrate to larger cities for better opportunities.
A second focus of AYPA is to enhance the quality of life for the area young professionals by providing networking opportunities, volunteer opportunities, and educational opportunities. These professionals wanted to contribute to and be a part of the community. Thus, from these objectives, a mission statement was derived.
