Patrol Day at Brighton - Swag Fest and Fundraiser

brighton_logo (brighton_logo)If you've never won anything in a raffle, my money would be on you or anyone that is headed to Brighton tomorrow March 14. The Brighton Volunteer Ski Patrol is having their annual Patrol Day fundraiser at Brighton Resort.

Not only is it a great way to show support for the Brighton Patrol who work so hard to keep the mountain safe (and open fast like last Tuesday) they also choose a worthy non-profit organization to benefit from Patrol Day through donations and publicity.

This season the excess Patrol Day proceeds will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. One reason for our selection of the Prostate Cancer Foundation for this year is one of our patrollers was diagnosed with prostate cancer and is struggling to fight this form of cancer.

An Avalanche Dog Demonstration will begin at 11am with "Ren Diner" offering a $5 "Combo Lunch Deal of  sloppy joes, chips, cookie & drink from 11:30-1pm at the base of the Crest lift. They will also have some baked goods for sale (top of each lift~ all day) and these are just some of the fundraiser activities planned for the day.

In the afternoon, there will be a Raffle (11-3PM) and Auction 12-1:30PM) on the Deck of the Alpine Rose Restaurant.
