Grand Targhee Resort will be turning the mountain pink in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Boarding for Breast Cancer’s year-round education, outreach and survivorship programs.
B4BC’s second time at Grand Targhee kicks off the weekend with an Art + Silent Auction on Friday, March 6th from 5 pm-7 pm at Habitat in Driggs (18 N Main Street). Join local artists as they display their work for the Art Auction and don’t forget to check out some amazing items from event sponsors like Yeti, GoPro, The North Face, and Smith.
THE PINK POKER RUN. The Poker Run welcomes all ages and abilities and registration is a minimum donation of $25 per person. Participants are welcome to register as an individual or together with friends and make a team. Upon registration, participants can share their fundraising page with friends and family near and far, to help raise funds. We encourage participants to fundraise as much as they can for the cause and a chance to win some fantastic items from our B4BC sponsors. Killer prizes will be awarded to the top fundraisers AND the best poker hands.
On-site registration is Saturday, March 7 from 9 to 11 a.m. at B4BC Booth and the poker run event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants visit four checkpoints around the village and on the hill to collect pink playing cards. The best poker hand at the end wins! Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony around 2:30 p.m. Other activities include a tasting of organic cold-pressed juices from our Presenting Sponsor Suja Organic as well as a Tribute Ride at 3 p.m. starting at the B4BC tent.
Participants are welcome to dedicate their run to someone who can’t be with them that day. Can’t participate? Join the fun and support B4BC by creating a free fundraising page to share with friends and family! All proceeds and donations from the auction and events will benefit Boarding for Breast Cancer’s Outreach, Education and Survivor Support Programs.
