CMC Awarded $1000 at Vail Resorts Echo Community Connections Day

Megan Jones (l) of Vail Resorts and Scott Braden (r) of CMC

Colorado Mountain Club was invited to participate in Vail Resorts Echo's Community Connections Party on January 25 at Vail Resorts corporate offices in Broomfield.  The event connected local service-oriented organizations with over 250 Vail employees looking to volunteer in the community. Additionally, Vail Resorts Echo held a drawing to give $1000 to an employee to award to one of the non-profit organizations present.  CMC was able to make connections with many Vail employees who are interested in volunteering with our Outdoor Stewardship program or Youth Education Program.

Megan Jones, an accountant at Vail Resorts, won the drawing and chose to award the $1000 prize to Colorado Mountain Club, saying "I believe that everyone should spend a lot of time exploring the outdoors and this great place called Colorado.  CMC is a great organization to teach kids that it's better to be outside than in!" Thanks Megan, we couldn't have said it better!  And thanks to Vail Resorts Echo for hosting the Community Connections Party!
