BROMLEY MT. – On Friday, February 7, 2014 Bromley Mountain will be holding their 12th Annual “Mom’s Day Off” fundraiser – when Moms ski or ride for just $15 when they show the ticket seller a snapshot of their kid or kids. Once again, this year’s event will benefit the Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center in Bennington, part of Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC). The cancer center will receive the entire $15 donation of each “Mom.”
“Last year’s event raised $4935 from 329 moms in what was predicted to be blizzard conditions,” said Bill Cairns, Bromley’s President. “Schools were closed and a lot of moms had to bail out. Still, that brought our eleven year total to just shy of $54,000. I’d love to see 2014’s MDO bring in seven, eight thousand dollars. Or more! It’s doable, and wouldn’t it be a great thing if it did?”
Dr. Orion Howard, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Putnam Medical Oncologist and medical director of the SVHC Cancer Center, had this to say about Moms Day Off: “Receiving donations like this helps us continue to provide top-quality care to our patients. It is wonderful to have so much support from the communities we serve.”
Leslie Keefe, SVHC VP of Corporate Development says, “We are fortunate to have such a wonderful partner in Bromley Mountain Resort. It’s a win-win event for moms to have fun and support health care at the same time.”
During the day, participants will be able to meet some of the physicians and staff of the cancer center, whether on the slopes or in the lodge.
Bromley Mountain is located at 3984 Vermont Route 11, Peru, Vermont, six miles east of Manchester. For information on any and all things Bromley, visit bromley.com.
