Houston Methodist honchos rounded up a cadre of golf-happy supporters for its annual sojourn to Aspen that included a round on the links, a cooking class and an early evening barbecue and chat with several of the hospital's leading physicians. 

Keeping their scores low and spirits high were hosts Cam and Rod Canion, Nancy and Jack Dinerstein and Lesha and Tom Elsenbrook. Co-hosting the golf rounds were "caddies" Clayton Erikson, Denise Monteleone and Dr. Veronica Selinko-Curran.

Monteleone was part of the golfing foursome that won the "best dressed" award for their pink flamingo theme. All four, including Marie O’Neil, Paula Loud and Dathel Coleman, donned feathery pink flamingo headpieces and were escorted by their mascot, an inflatable pink flamingo. 

For those not interested in golf, Maroon Creek  Club's executive chef Adam Gordon joined forces with Houston Methodist Kari Kooi for a cooking class focusing on healthy yet tasty fare.

The "Peak Performances in  Aspen" fundraiser concluded at the Aspen Golf Club with a barbecue dinner, live music and golf awards. Adding meat to the fun was the program led by Houston Methodist president and CEO Dr. Marc Boom and including info on the latest medical advances and research presented by Dr. Stephen Incavo, Dr. Howard Monsour and Dr. Richard Robbins.

Enjoying Aspen's cool weather and the Houston Methodist fun were Bob Hay, president of Bayou City Capital which presented the golf tourney, along with Joyce and Dr. Eric Haufrect, Rita and John Madden, Mary Ann and David McKeithan, Eliza and Johnny Duncan, Shel Erikson, Susan and Dick Hansen, Kim and Dan Moody, Marcia and David Solomon and Leslie and Jack Blanton.
