Chairlift Swing Raffle: ONLY 200 Tickets

Nostalgic Boyne Mountain: Your Chance to Win a Chairlift Swing while Supporting Challenge Mountain

As Challenge Mountain continues its 40th-anniversary celebration year, Boyne Mountain Resort has once again stepped in to support the organization.

With the revitalization of Boyne Mountain came new chairlifts and technology, leaving the original chairs filled with nostalgia and highly sought after. “Long-time lovers of Boyne Mountain want to have a little piece of history.,” shares Kari Roder, Boyne Mountain Resort Director of Marketing.

“As we continue to celebrate monumental anniversaries — Boyne Mountain’s 75th and Challenge Mountain’s 40th — we want to keep the momentum alive by donating a custom chairlift swing for Challenge Mountain to raffle,,” adds Roder. “Our team designed and produced the swing to perfectly complement the chair.”

“We’re grateful to the Mountain for their generosity,” shares Elizabeth Gertz, Challenge Mountain Executive Director. To commemorate the 40th year, the organization is selling 200 tickets at $200 each for a chance to win the chair swing. “We thought it fitting to set a $40,000 goal in honor of our 40th,” she adds.

With the entry limited to 200, Challenge Mountain anticipates entries to sell quickly! Those interested in supporting the fundraiser, can entry ONLINE!!! The drawing will be held once all 200 entries are received.

Challenge Mountain believes that access to and participation in recreational and social activities are integral to the well-being and fulfillment of every person. “For many of us, the activities we enjoy are easily accessible,” shares Elizabeth Gertz, Challenge Mountain Executive Director. “This is not the case for children and adults living with disabilities.” In rural northern Michigan, these opportunities are even more limited.

“With funds raised from the chair swing raffle and from generous supporters like Boyne Mountain Resort, Challenge Mountain will continue to provide adaptive recreational programs year-round — from adaptive skiing to kayaking, from adaptive biking to dance,” Gertz adds. “And all are provided at little or no cost to the participant, eliminating financial burden that often comes with a disability.”

“Making a $200 donation with a chance to win will help us continue our inclusive environment and provide the opportunity for youth and adults with disabilities to live full and active lives,” Gertz concludes.
