Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort raised more than $21,500 for Mercy Corps during Monday evening’s Haitian Relief night, Feb. 15.
The resort extended operational hours on the President’s Monday holiday and challenged skiers and snowboarders to purchase a $10 night ticket online, all of which was donated to Mercy Corps Haitian Relief efforts.
More than $8,000 was raised from advance purchasing guests, some of whom didn’t even use the lift ticket.
Meadows officials are donating an additional $12,700 from the evening’s proceeds to up that total to $20,760.
Meadows guests also dug deep into their pockets offering spare change and bills to Mercy Corps volunteers attending the event.
Meadows has a page on the Mercy Corps Web site for those who would like to contribute: www.mercycorps.org/fundraising/mthoodmeadows.
