Tannersville, PA – It is hard to find someone that has not been touched by breast cancer in some way. Officials at Pennsylvania’s Camelback Mountain Resort feel the same and have partnered with Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) to help educate the ski area’s staff and guests on the importance of an active lifestyle and early detection. To celebrate with survivors and friends, Camelback has planned a full day of fun events on Saturday, February 9th.
“An active lifestyle is one of the key factors in helping to prevent breast cancer, or any cancer for that matter, so we decided again this year to dedicate an entire day to the cause,” said Brian Bossuyt, Director of Winter Marketing for Camelback Mountain Resort.
This is the third season that Camelback is turning the mountain pink in support of breast cancer education and early detection efforts. Last year, over $6,000 was raised and 50 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Pocono Medical’s Breast Cancer Center. The remaining 50 percent will go to B4BC.
The day will be chock full of pink; hats, pink bandanas and pink winter clothing will be available for sale. The grand finale raffle and ever-popular “Hunks & Honeys of Camelback SnowSport’s School” will take place late in the day where guests will bid on private lessons with SnowSport’s School heart-throbs.
