Why does Flamingo need your support?

Every year, AEF brings the community together at Flamingo, our annual benefit,  to fund extraordinary educational opportunities for every student. Money raised at Flamingo directly supports teacher and staff salaries and a wide range of academic and extracurricular programs. Over 50% of Aspen School District teachers give to AEF annually. We are hoping for 100% family participation this year. Please help us reach our goal!
