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.
