Kirkwood Sets Goal to Raise $100,000 for the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund

Kirkwood, CA ¿ (October 2, 2001) ¿ Kirkwood Mountain Resort has announced a goal of raising $100,000 for the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund through the sale of the Relief Pass, a $299 full season value pass. For every Relief Pass sold during the month of October, Kirkwood will donate $100 to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund in an effort to help the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

“The Relief Pass will help the American Red Cross continue to provide aid and assistance for all those who have been affected by the devastation of the terrorist attacks on our Country,” states Teresa Soloria of the American Red Cross.

“As in the rest of the country, we here at Kirkwood have been stunned by the tragic attacks of Sept. 11,” said Tim Cohee, president of Kirkwood Mountain Resort. “Over the last few weeks, all of us have been searching for ways to help the victims of the terrorist assaults. Our employees suggested that we bring back our early season-priced Quad Pass in hopes of raising $100,000. By extending the quad pass an extra month, we give members of the Kirkwood family the chance to assist in the relief efforts for those directly touched by these unspeakable acts.”

Passes must be purchased in blocks of four and are subject to holiday blackout dates. Log onto or call 209.258.6000 for more information.

Kirkwood Mountain Resort, located just south of Lake Tahoe, has quietly reigned as the choice of locals and visitors for challenging terrain and deep snow for three decades.
