The Little Nell is proud to support The Buddy Program in hosting the beloved non-profit’s annual Gingerbread House Workshop every December. Led by Helen DeFrance and Jim Fifield, the afternoon includes decorating gingerbread houses with an array of accoutrements then taking them home for the holidays. More than150 Little and Big Buddies took part in the creative endeavor held Saturday, Dec. 6, in The Nell’s Grand Salon. Thanks to many generous individuals and business sponsors from the Aspen community, the event was free for all, and more than $65,000 was raised for the Buddy Program.
For more than 40 years, the Buddy Program has been serving youth in the Roaring Fork Valley community. The Buddy Program runs five programs throughout the Roaring Fork Valley, including one-on-one mentoring, group/experiential mentoring, and financial literacy education.
