In 1983, at the request of Lita Warner Heller, President of the Board of Ballet/Aspen, board member Christine Aubale Gerschel organized, founded and became President for three years of a group of dynamic and energetic women to be a fund raising auxiliary for Ballet/Aspen called Les Dames de Ballet.

During the fall of 1985, Christine Aubale Gerschel and Joan Bracken Bain were responsible for restructuring the group into an autonomous organization with its own 501(c) (3) renamed Les Dames d'Aspen, Ltd.  In February 2002, Christine Aubale Gerschel once again became President of Les Dames d'Aspen and restructured and revived the group into a new identity.  
 

This year marks Les Dames d'Aspen's 41st Anniversary. Over the years, this prestigious organization has contributed approximately $4.6 million to local Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley art organizations, scholarships and children's programs.
