Tahoe Safe Alliance announces Ski Tahoe Fundraiser
January 11, 2019
Tahoe SAFE Alliance has kicked off its Ski Tahoe Fundraiser for the 10th year in a row, selling $129 all-day lift tickets to any Vail operated resort including Northstar, Heavenly and Kirkwood.
"It helps us out a lot," said Dawn Harris, development manager for Tahoe SAFE Alliance.
Harris said more than 70 percent of their funding comes through the federal government. With the government shutdown in place, she said funding their programs may get difficult in the near future.
All proceeds from the ticket sales will aid the organization's programs that benefit child survivors of abuse and their families in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.
“For people that don’t have passes we really hope they’d choose to buy these tickets and support a good cause.”

The tickets offer a 30 percent savings versus a same day purchase at a ticket window. The tickets have no blackout dates or restrictions and can be used over Martin Luther King Day and President's Day Weekend.
Tahoe SAFE Alliance has worked with Vail Resorts since 2009, as the organization is given 300 tickets to sell throughout the season. While Harris says the amount of money they make each year largely depends on the snow the resorts receive, they have been able to raise up to $30,000 in past seasons.
"We recognize $129 is a lot of money for tickets," said Harris. "For people that don't have passes we really hope they'd choose to buy these tickets and support a good cause."
