Light It Up!

Alpine Programs Fundraiser

We’re looking to ‘Light It Up’ this season in support of our Club’s Programs fundraising initiatives!

We are constantly seeking opportunities to further enhance your experience at the Club, and this year’s programs fundraising efforts aim to do just that. With the growing popularity of our night events such as Rail Jam and Night Dual, we are determined to “Light It Up” on Lower Alpine with the purchase of an LED lighting system. The on-hill transformation would help provide a unique backdrop for not only our existing evening events, but also open the door for hosting additional special events that the full membership can look forward to.

To make this vision a reality, we are to embark on a fundraising journey that involves the active participation of YOU, our members! Read on to learn more about the fun in store.

Light It Up, A Day of FUNdraising | Saturday, February 10, 2024

We had an action-packed day of FUNdraising activities to push us towards our goal, and are stoked to be over 60% of the way there! Thank you to all members and businesses who volunteered or donated to our fundraising events. With special thanks to Melissa DaCosta, Stephen Riff, Michael Gelfand, Lisa Koster and Jeff Cox for your involvement/donations.

So far this season, our full efforts have netted us $55,223.

Let’s keep the momentum building as we aim for our $85,000 target to help fund the new lighting system on Lower Alpine!
