A total of $1,260 was donated to the Bushkill Outreach. The Bushkill Outreach is a local food bank affiliated with the Reformed Church of Bushkill and St. John’s Catholic Church of Bushkill, PA.

Also on Saturday and Sunday, Feb 8 & 9, Shawnee Mountain held its Cancer Awareness Weekend in cooperation with the American Cancer Society and the Hope for Strength Breast Cancer Fund. Saturday’s activities included the first annual “Paint the Mountain Pink Day” which raised $2240 for the Monroe County based Hope for Strength Breast Cancer Fund. Sundays activities centered around the Joe Reisle Memorial Ski Race Against Cancer on the Upper Tomahawk NASTAR Race Trail. Race fee proceeds, along with corporate sponsorships and individual donations raised $6,622, all of which has been sent to Monroe County Chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Both Pennsylvania Learn to Ski Day and the Ski Race Against Cancer are long standing Shawnee Mountain Events and along with the new Paint the Mountain Pink Day and other fundraisers are held annually at the family orientated Ski Area.
