Team Gleason, Venga Venga, the Town of Snowmass, CO and SGWS have teamed up to create a fun après ski event on April 7th, 2022 to help raise awareness and funds for Team Gleason in its efforts to help support those living with ALS.

Team Gleason has granted an Adventure trip to Karen Stiles, a family member of two SGWS’s employees (her son, Aaron Kisor, VP Comm Finance CPWS NY and her sister, Alison Herman, Senior Counsel -Regulatory and Compliance). As part of this Adventure, Karen, with the help of her husband, will learn to ski down Snowmass Mountain in an adaptive chair, with her family and fellow skiers cheering her on.

Our hope is to bring the Adventure and a fundraising event together to pay it forward and help provide much-needed equipment and a life-changing Adventure to another person living with ALS! All proceeds from wristband sales will be donated to Team Gleason. Venga Venga has also agreed to separately donate proceeds from its Cadillac Margarita sales the day of the event to Team Gleason regardless of whether a consumer has purchased a wristband.

Event Details:
April 7, 2022 | 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Hosted by Venga Venga | 105 Daly Ln, Snowmass Village, CO 81615
Entry Wristbands must be purchased in advance*

From Karen Stiles’ Adventure Request:

“My adventure is to go to Aspen in the springtime and learn how to sit ski! I would take lessons at the school and learn with my husband. He is a former ski instructor during his college years and would learn with me so that we can continue to enjoy skiing together as this has been such a huge part of our outdoor life. My close friends and family would join us as we have skied together over the years and the past 10 always spring ski in Aspen.. Enjoying a few other activities like a dog sled ride to dinner and a horse drawn carriage ride would be an awesome addition to the experience.

This Adventure would mean continuing to live my BEST Life! This is key in staying true to myself by learning new things, adapting, enjoying adventure, and including the people in my life that make it all possible. Learning to sit ski enables me to continue being who I am and empowers me to look forward to all the wonderful things in my life.”
