Reservations are being accepted for the Aspen Hall of Fame’s 2019 banquet, which will see the induction of Matthew and Kay Bucksbaum, Jon Busch and Dr. Barry Mink. All will be honored for “their major contributions to the unique character and charm of Aspen,” according to a recent release from the AHOF committee.
The 32nd annual Aspen Hall of Fame induction and banquet is set for Jan. 19 at the Hotel Jerome. The deadline to buy tickets, at $125 each, is Jan. 11 or when tickets sell out. Tickets may be reserved by going to www.aspenhalloffame.org
Another option is to send a check to Aspen Hall of Fame, P.O. Box 510, Aspen, CO, 81612.
“This year’s inductees are all long-term residents who have made tremendous contributions to the community,” the release stated.
Matthew and Kay Bucksbaum are steadfast supporters of the Aspen Music Festival and School; both served on the board, endowed a scholarship program for exceptional music school students and funded the Matthew and Carolyn Bucksbaum Campus.
Jon Busch’s deep involvement in the Aspen movie scene is well known. In addition, he’s been a strong advocate of LGBTQ civil rights, and was instrumental in passing Aspen’s gay rights ordinance. Busch was also a founder of Aspen’s Gay Ski Week.
“Dr. Barry Mink has offered his medical expertise to the community for over 40 years through his internal medicine practice and his service on the Aspen Valley Hospital Board,” the release noted. As a sports medicine pioneer, Mink supported young skiers from Rocky Mountain Nordic and Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club with their training and medical issues, it was noted.
At the induction ceremony on Jan. 19, the evening begins at 5 p.m. and includes a cash bar, dinner and an awards ceremony, where video profiles of each inductee will be highlighted.
