$10 lift tickets benefit charity

SANDPOINT — Schweitzer Mountain Resort is offering $10 lift tickets on Friday to help raise funds for local charities.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit Community Cancer Services and the Bonner Partners in Care Clinic.

The event is the resort’s first major event of the winter season.

The resort plans to have more than 2,000 acres of skiable terrain open and operate seven lifts. Lifts will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

“Community Day is a great opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to our loyal skiers and support two organizations that provide much needed services in Bonner County”, said Schweitzer President and CEO Tom Chasse.

Tickets are available in advance at Schweitzer.com or in person at either organization. Early purchasers will be allowed to choose which organization they wish to support. During the day of the event, tickets will be available at the Schweitzer Guest Services, Activity Center and Snow Sports Center.

Community Cancer Services is a local resource and information center for cancer patients and their families.  It provides both financial and emotional support during what can be the most challenging time in a person’s life.

The organization offers support including travel assistance, prescription assistance and counseling.

The Bonner Partners in Care Clinic provides support for residents of the community who do not have access to health insurance and meet the clinic’s eligibility criteria. The clinic is staffed by volunteer doctors, nurses and physician’s assistants two nights a week to provide their services to those in need.
