Community Day December 15 at Schweitzer 

$10 Lift Tickets Benefit Bonner Partners in Care & Community Cancer Services 

Sandpoint, ID (November 30, 2017) - Supporting the local community is something that Schweitzer Mountain Resort feels very strongly about and every December the resort sponsors “Community Day” offering full day lift tickets for $10 with 100% of all ticket revenue going to Bonner Partners in Care and Community Cancer Services. 

Ten years ago, the resort began sponsoring “A Day for Heather” with proceeds being shared with “Heather’s House,” an organization that focused on supporting families dealing with cancer. Over the years, both the day and the beneficiaries have evolved enabling Schweitzer to donate over $172K to two very worthy Sandpoint non-profits.

“Community Cancer Services grew out of “Heather’s House” and now provides a wide variety of support and resources for people fighting cancer,” said Mary Weber-Quinn, Schweitzer’s Events & Activities Director. “Incorporating Bonner Partners in Care into this day makes sense to us. Two great causes: one helping our Sandpoint neighbors when they are ill and the other helping people who can’t afford medical care. We are very proud of both of these organizations.”

The resort had originally scheduled Community Day for December 8, 2017 but decided to delay the event a week in hopes of having more lifts and terrain available to the public. “Having more terrain open for just $10 is a great draw for this incredibly important fundraising effort. We want this day to be a win-win for everybody.”

Lift tickets are available directly from the organizations, at Schweitzer’s lift ticket window on December 15 or online at
