VIMSS hosting Snow Beach Bash at Mount Washington

THE SNOW BEACH Bash will be a blast.

 

 

Come out and celebrate spring, and support mountain sport athletes from Vancouver  Island at the Snow Beach Bash on Saturday, April 23 at the Raven Lodge on Mount Washington.

The Snow Beach Bash, organized by the Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Society (VIMSS) with sponsorship from Captain Morgan’s Rum, is your chance to don your summer apparel and head up the mountain for some fun in the sun.

The event includes a barbecue buffet, music, snow volleyball and limbo, along with a silent auction and raffles. All proceeds will go to support emerging competitive Vancouver Island athletes involved in mountain sports.

“It’s a fun-filled evening for both our athletes and the community,” said Karen Bonell, Snow Beach Bash coordinator. “And an opportunity to meet and mingle with our sponsored athletes, who spend many hours throughout the year in training and competition.”

Since 2003, the society has raised over $75,000 in a variety of fundraising initiatives and has assisted over 55 Vancouver Island athletes with their travel expenses to competitive sporting events. Most recently, this resulted in three gold medals and one silver at the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax for Island athletes.

On April 23 the fun gets started at 6 p.m. with a welcome rum cocktail courtesy of Captain Morgan, and everyone is encouraged to dress in their best beach wear. Tickets are $60 per person or $100 per couple and are available at events@VIMSS.com. Space is limited so get your tickets early.

Also on April 23 VIMSS will be showcasing the new Mountain Sports Centre with a tour through the facility prior to the Beach Bash.
