Ski resort offers discounted lift tickets to guests who donate food
Newry, Maine (November 14, 2011)-Sunday River Ski Resort is hosting its annual Tin Mountain Round Up this weekend, November 19-20, 2011. Skiers and snowboarders who arrive with three or more items of nonperishable food to benefit the local Andover Food Bank annual drive will receive $10 off of a lift ticket.
Tin Mountain Roundup is part of the resort’s corporate initiative to give back to the community through in-kind giving, food drives, and events that raise money for such programs as the Bethel Rotary Club’s Toy for Tots, Maine Handicapped Skiing, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation as well as Sunday River’s Regional Charitable Fund .
“As the holidays approach, we are reminded of those who may not be as fortunate,” Dana Bullen, Resort President and General Manager for Sunday River, states. “The Tin Mountain Round Up has become a tradition for us, like any other Thanksgiving tradition, but also these types of annual events add to the overall guest experience, create lasting memories for those who participate, and are beneficial to the community.”
The Andover Food Bank was established to provide emergency food to those who find themselves in short-term crisis situations and without the means to buy food. As an interim measure, while these families and individuals await services, Andover Food Bank boxes and provides ten balanced meals-enough for three days, which is the period assessed as the minimum time it takes for the appropriate agencies to be in a position to assist.
