Schweitzer sets ‘Community Day’

Print Article

SANDPOINT — Supporting the local community is something that Schweitzer Mountain Resort feels very strongly about and every December the resort sponsors “Community Day” offering full day lift tickets for $10 with 100 percent of all ticket revenue going to Bonner Partners in Care and Community Cancer Services.

Ten years ago, the resort began sponsoring “A Day for Heather” with proceeds being shared with “Heather’s House,” an organization that focused on supporting families dealing with cancer. Over the years, both the day and the beneficiaries have evolved enabling Schweitzer to donate over $149,717 to two very worthy Sandpoint non-profits.

“Community Cancer Services grew out of “Heather’s House” and now provides a wide variety of support and resources for people fighting cancer,” said Mary Weber-Quinn, Schweitzer’s events and activities director. “Incorporating Bonner Partners in Care into this day makes sense to us. Two great causes: one helping our Sandpoint neighbors when they are ill and the other helping people who can’t afford medical care. We are very proud of both of these organizations.”

Weber-Quinn said there are a lot of people in Sandpoint who struggle with their health care and this is Schweitzer’s way to pitch in and help as best as possible.

Lift tickets are available directly from the organizations, at Schweitzer’s lift ticket window Dec. 9 or online at schweitzer.com.
