Mt. Bachelor generously donates 100 percent of Ski for Schools revenue. Since the inception, the event has garnered more than $180,000, benefiting countless local students.
“Mt. Bachelor is excited to partner with the Education Foundation for the 11th year of Ski for Schools,” said Spencer Weimar, director of sales, marketing and reservations at Mt. Bachelor. “Through this partnership we can offer an incredible deal on lift tickets to our local community while helping students achieve success.”
Julie Smith, executive director of the Education Foundation for Bend-La Pine Schools shared, “We are extremely grateful to Mt. Bachelor for their ongoing support of our mission. The funds raised for our district largely support the Activity Fee Scholarship Program, providing financial aid for middle and high school youth in need for sports registration fees. Since the recession, the need has been immense and studies show that student engagement in after-school programs yields significant returns to both individuals and society-as-a-whole.”
Tickets are limited and will NOT be sold at the Mt. Bachelor ticket windows, so purchase them at an area retailer now! For more information please call 541-355-5660, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.engagedminds.org.
