Wow- we are already into February! The good news is the groundhog says we have at least six more weeks of winter, and with this week’s snow-storms as a preview, I’m betting he’s conservative with his estimate!
February also means AbilityPLUS at Mount Snow is busy getting the word out about our Winterfest fundraiser at Mount Snow, set for Saturday, March 1. This year we join Mount Snow’s Mardi Gras celebration, with our Ski/Ride-Til-You-Drop-A-Thon, plenty of beads, and a prize wheel to benefit AbilityPLUS, courtesy of Verizon Wireless.
Following the Ski/Ride-A-Thon, join us for our Mardi Gras themed après party, with expanded buffet, raffle, and live and silent auctions, at The Lodge at Mount Snow. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to catch up with friends while helping us go beyond our $30,000 fundraising goal.
Ask friends and family to sponsor you for the day, or by the number of runs you complete, in support of AbilityPLUS adaptive sports and recreation programs at Mount Snow.
We’re also asking for help acquiring items for the live and silent auctions, along with some great prizes for our raffles. Big-ticket items such as vacations, airline tickets, hotel stays, electronics, and ski/snowboard equipment are particularly important, but we need items that run the gamut. We’ll be creating gift baskets for both our raffle and silent auction. No donated item is too great or too small!
AbilityPLUS program fees cover only about 1/10 of the actual cost of providing our programs. We rely on the generosity of individual donors, sponsors, and of course our volunteers, to fulfill our mission. Thanks to your ongoing support, no one is ever turned away from an AbilityPLUS program for lack of ability to pay. Winterfest at Mount Snow is the largest fundraising event we hold each ski season. Please join us!
