Schweitzer Mountain raises $30K for Sandpoint charities

WINTER SPORTS -- Schweitzer Mountain Resort reports it's donating $30,570 from a (Dec. 14) fund-raising event with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Community Cancer Services and the Bonner Partners in Care Clinic. It was Schweitzer’s first major event of the winter season.

The resort offered skiing for $10 a person and 3,000 tickets were sold for the Community Day.

“To see such a large turnout for an event like this really illustrates what kind of community this is,” said Schweitzer Activities and Events Director Mary-Weber Quinn. “We support and care about each other, and I think that was shown here today.”
