The Sean McCabe Memorial Fundraiser is off to a good start. In five days we have raised $2,000 with contributions ranging from $5 to $500. We are well on our way to making our goal, but still have quite a bit of work to do.
So far we have had 32 people donate to this very important cause. FasterSkier often has that many visits 10 minutes! If each visitor contribute $5 to $10, we could easily rach our goal of $12,000 by the end of the day tomorrow.
It has been inspiring and gratifying to see members of the ski community step forward and contribute to the McCabe family. Over the course of my life I have been a part of many different ski communities in many parts of the country. Our local communities are strong. BUt this fundraiser has already demonstrated that the community extends beyond town, county, and even state borders. Donations have come from Alaska, Colorado, Masschusetts, Vermont, Wyoming, Minnesota and more!
But 32 contributions are nowhere near enough. I know we can do better, and I know we can achieve this goal.
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, and thank you to all the companies who have donated gifts for contributors. We have had several new sponsors come on this week!
