On Friday, Feb. 5 Bromley Mountain will be sponsoring their eighth annual "Mom's Day Off" fundraiser to benefit the Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen For the Cure.
The idea behind "Mom's Day Off" is simple. For $15, moms can ski or ride Bromley for the full day when they show the ticket seller a snapshot of their kids. Bromley, in turn, donates the entire $15 to Komen's VT-NH Affiliate (the Race for the Cure).
"Over the past seven years, this event has raised just shy of $30,000," says Bromley's President, Rich Wiseman. "Last year was my first Mom's Day Off and I have to tell you, it was an incredibly moving day. The energy was amazing, and we raised a record $5,500... we'd love to break that record this year."
Bromley is also a sponsor of the annual Komen VT\NH Race for the Cure, held each year in July at the Hildene Meadows, in Manchester (this year's Race will be on Saturday, July 17).
Bromley Mountain is located on Vermont Route 11, six miles east of Manchester and online at www. bromley.com.
