Tickets on sale for Forks & Skis fundraiser

Proceeds from annual ski event at Bristol Mountain benefit Foodlink

ROCHESTER – A day on the slopes could generate nearly 100,000 meals for our food insecure neighbors this winter.

Tickets are on sale now for Forks & Skis, an event scheduled for March 3 at Bristol Mountain to benefit Foodlink, the regional food bank. This will be the fifth year Foodlink has been involved in the event.

“Come join the region’s business and real estate community in helping to feed those in need,” said FL Gorman, Forks & Skis Committee Chair and Senior Counsel at Harris Beach. “You can spend the day skiing, try the “Dash for Cash” race, enter to win some great raffles prizes, or just listen to some live music. Most don’t realize how many people in our area go hungry, so join us on March 3, have some fun and help support our neighbors in need.”

Tickets cost $75 ($50 for attendees who already own a Bristol Mountain ski pass, or for those who do not plan on skiing) and include lunch, a lift pass, entry into a timed race and a free drink at the Après Ski party.

Last year, the event raised more than $29,000. Harris Beach and Key Bank return as title sponsors for this year’s event.
