Schweitzer’s Community Day Scheduled for March 25, 2022
Resort Sponsors Fundraising Day for Two Local Non-Profits
Sandpoint, ID (March 8, 2022) – Community Day, Schweitzer’s long-standing fundraiser for two local non-profits, Bonner Partners in Care Clinic and Community Cancer Services, is scheduled to return on March 25, 2022, after a hiatus due to the Covid pandemic. The event, which typically took place in early December has been shifted to a spring date to provide skiers and riders a chance to enjoy the entire mountain. “Community Day has historically been held in December, but we felt that by moving the event to spring, it gives everyone who’s donating to these important non-profits a much better ski experience at Schweitzer,” explains Marketing Manager, Dig Chrismer. “Conditions mountain wide are really good this time of year and we feel that one good turn deserves another.”
Lift tickets for Community Day are $20 and available for purchase online. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to Community Cancer Services and Bonner Partners in Care with guests having the option to select which organization they would like their purchase to support. “Both of these non-profits serve people in need in our community and it’s an honor for us to be able to support them in this way with a great day on the mountain,” adds Chrismer.

About Community Cancer Services:
Founded in 2002 by a group of local citizens, Community Cancer Services, home of “Heather’s House”, is a non-profit, community-funded, cancer resource center providing information and direct support services to cancer patients and their families residing in Bonner and Boundary counties of North Idaho. CCS continues to evolve as we learn more about the needs of local cancer patients and their families.
About Bonner Partners in Care:
The clinic, which opened for patients in July 2003, is the result of dedicated community members with a vision, many benefactors, and our most important asset: our volunteers who make our missions possible. Physicians, Physician Assistants, nurses, and clerical volunteers staff the clinic every Tuesday evening to provide medical services. Numerous other volunteers help with prescription assistance, bookkeeping, clerical duties, and supply management. Many of our board members are also volunteers at the clinic as well as work to assure the clinic is run professionally and economically.
