THE 8TH ANNUAL ASCENDIGO BLUE ASPEN autism beneﬁt event will take place on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at the Hotel Jerome in downtown Aspen. Hosted at the height of Aspen’s winter season over the busy President’s Day Weekend, Ascendigo Blue Aspen is the signature fundraising event of Ascendigo Autism Services. This grand evening anchors an exciting weekend of festivities.
Formerly known as Light It Up Blue Aspen, Ascendigo Blue Aspen has been renamed to bring more awareness to Ascendigo and its mission — to raise both awareness and much-needed funds to assist families and children on the autism spectrum in the Roaring Fork Valley and western Colorado communities. All proceeds from Ascendigo Blue Aspen (ABA) directly benefit these programs through its beneficiary, Ascendigo.
