You've heard the expression "Doing well while doing good."
Well, Blue Mountain Ski Area in Pennsylvania is offering skiers and snowboarders a chance to do good while having fun, by participating in a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity Saturday, Feb. 26.
The All-Night Skiing & Snowboarding event runs 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. with ticket proceeds going to the nonprofit group that helps people around the world build decent housing.
Habitat reports that the world is experiencing a global housing crisis, with about 1.6 billion people living in substandard housing and 100 million homeless, according to the United Nations. These people are increasingly urban residents, Habitat reports, and every week more than a million people are born in, or move to, cities in the developing world. But it's not just a problem elsewhere, Habitat reports. In the United States, 95 million people, or one-third of the population, have housing problems that range from affordability to homelessness.
Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to providing decent, affordable homes for those in need.
Entertainment will be provided in the Summit Lodge Ballroom and food and beverages will be available for sale. Tickets are available to purchase in advance.
Blue Mountain is located in Eastern Pennsylvania, one hour north of Philadelphia, with the greatest vertical in the state, 1,082 feet, 33 trails, three terrain parks and a 350-foot-long halfpipe, with all terrain lighted for night skiing.
