2019 Bend Chamber SAGE Business Awards // Large Business of the Year Award Recipient
It’s their commitment to stewardship, their clarity of mission, and expanding access to our natural resources that set them apart from a strong field of nominees for Large Business of the Year. Congratulations, Pine Mountain Sports, SAGE Large Business of the Year Award recipient!
Pine Mountain Sports is celebrating its 19th year as Central Oregon ambassadors of mountain and trail. “Being an active part of this community is important to us. At Pine Mountain Sports we recognize that our community is growing. As our population increases, the needs and demands on our social services here in Central Oregon are also increasing. We believe that it’s our responsibility to embrace and support those who are working hard to serve our neighbors with real needs,” shared Dan McGarigle, store owner.
In 2016, Pine Mountain Sports began building a team of “Community Ambassadors” made up of local businesses and individuals. Community Ambassadors pledge a donation of $500, which they directly donate to the year’s designated non-profit.
In 2016, Pine Mountain Sports began building a team of “Community Ambassadors” made up of local businesses and individuals. Community Ambassadors pledge a donation of $500, which they directly donate to the year’s designated non-profit. Pine Mountain Sports and its Community Ambassadors support a single local charity through PR and fundraising for an entire year. Through this, we can all Resolve to Be Involved, knowing that a small group of concerned citizens can truly make a difference when they take action together. Since 2016 Pine Mountain Sports and its Community Ambassadors have supported CASA, Volunteers in Medicine (VIM), and Family Access Network. For 2019 Pine Mountain Sports and its Community Ambassadors are supporting Cascade Youth and Family Center (CYFC).
Pine Mountain Sports also donates 1% of all Club Card Member purchases directly to local non-profits that are working to make Central Oregon a better place to live and play. Every time you shop locally at Pine Mountain Sports, you support local charity organizations. Over the years we have donated more than $70,000.
