    Alums and parents participate in charity event

The American Airlines Celebrity Ski Event, which benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, took place on March 2-5, in Vail, Colo. American Airlines, in partnership with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, has sponsored the event for the last 15 years, raising more than $12 million; proceeds have been used to better the lives of children with the disease and to fund research and development efforts. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is headed by Robert J. Beall, M.D., father of Tom Beall ’93.

This year’s event included celebrity ski races and an auction on Saturday night to benefit the cause. The musical group Firefall provided entertainment for the skiers after long days on the slopes. Celebrities participating in the races included Boomer Esiason, Dan Jansen, former Vice President Dan Quayle and his wife, Marilyn, Jim Palmer, and Rosie O’Donnell.

Bernie Willett, father of Erin ’00, was in charge of organizing the fund-raiser for American Airlines. Erin Willett, Amy Winnewisser and Elizabeth Brown, all members of the Class of 2000, volunteered their time in support of this effort.
