HoliMont is please to announce that the 14th Annual SkiScape event, which is put on by Kids Escaping Drugs, will be held at HoliMont on January 8th, 2012. As with the previous 13 years there will be plenty of skiing/snowboarding, lots of food, and a great selection of prizes that will be raffled off. All of the proceeds from SkiScape help to fund the amazing work that the Kids Escaping Drugs organization does on an annual basis.
By raising a minimum pledge of $50 (plus a $10 early registration fee) you can come take part in this worthy fundraising event. If you choose to register the day of the event you must pay a minimum of $70 (which includes the registration fee) to participate. The first 300 participants who register are guaranteed a SkiScape t-shirt.
“HoliMont is happy to partner up with Kids Escaping Drugs for another great SkiScape event,” said Dash Hegeman, HoliMont Marketing Director. “The work that Kids Escaping Drugs does is so important to the Western New York community and HoliMont is thrilled to have established such a solid, long-lasting relationship with such a great organization. Each year a lot of hard work goes into planning this event and this season is no different. The KED staff has really gone the extra distance to make this event not only a great fundraiser but also a really fun event to take part in.”
The more money a person raises for the event, the more prizes they can walk away with at the end of the day. Every year KED has a great selection of incentives for people/teams who bring in the most money. Last year it was gift certificates to The Ski Rack in East Aurora. At the time this article went to print the prizes had not been established but you can bet they will be good ones!
Every year there are an assortment of races and other activities that take place at SkiScape, which participants can sign up for the day of the event. If you love to ski or snowboard and you’ve never taken part in SkiScape this is definitely the year to come check it out. The sight of watching the Lake Effect Fire Fighter races, where firefighters from all over the Greater Western New York area race down the slopes of HoliMont in full fire gear is worth the price of admission by itself.
Participants of SkiScape will get an all-day pass to HoliMont, breakfast and lunch as well as the free t-shirt (provided you register early). Groups of 15 or more will receive a $5 per person discount. For more information on SkiScape call the KED office at (716) 827-9462 or check out www.ked.makeachangewny.org/events/skiscape.
