The Buddy Program - The Bash for the Buddies Event

The 20th Annual Bash for the Buddies

Friday, July 5th, 2019

Boogie's Merry-Go Ranch
1650 McLain Flats Road, Aspen

Join us for a Night on the Nile

Enter into this Egyptian themed fantasy to find out what wonders await you!

  • Hosted by Lenny “Boogie” and Gail Weinglass at their stunning Merry-Go Ranch overlooking the majestic mountain views of Aspen, Colorado
  • Honoring Mona Look-Mazza and Tony Mazza for their many years of exemplary service and generosity to the Buddy Program
  • Outside and tented, the evening begins at 6:00 pm with our signature Taste of Aspen featuring many of Aspen’s top chefs and cocktail mixologists, and one of the best Silent Auctions of the year! Feel the magic up close at a seated dinner, a brief program and a Live Auction
  • LIVE MUSIC with Here Come the Mummies, an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5,000 year-old Egyptian Mummies.  Some say they were cursed. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, Here Come the Mummies’ mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will have you dancing all night long!

Annually attended by over 500 patrons and philanthropists, the Bash is a celebration of the Buddy Program and the youth, families and volunteer Big Buddies throughout the Roaring Fork Valley that we serve through our mentoring programs. This evening typically raises $700,000 or more in one night which is nearly two thirds of our annual operating budget, thanks to the generosity and support of our many donors!
