Many Vermonters including local farmers lost everything in tropical storm Irene. Many people are already helping the storm recovery in a variety of ways, however, here’s another chance to offer your support.
Killington Resort created an online auction, “From the Ground Up,” to assist Vermont farms that sustained damage from tropical storm Irene. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Vermont Farm Disaster Relief Fund to help local farmers begin to rebuild.
Starting September 12, 2011 at 8 p.m. EST, From the Ground Up will open online for bidding on items such as an Unlimited 2011-12 Killington season pass, first gondola ride of the 2011-12 season, two VIP passes to any one of the 2011-12 Dew Tour stops, including 2 one-day lift tickets to the host resort, one week of Woodward Camp at Cooper Mountain, Red Sox tickets for four at the Budweiser Roof Deck Table, a Burton Nug snowboard signed by Jake Burton and much more.
Fortunately, Killington Resort received minimal damage from tropical storm Irene, however, many of our local farmers lost everything. From the Ground Up online auction will help Vermont farmers replace infrastructure as well as help cover losses sustained from the storm.
Killington Resort expressed gratitude for the generous auction items provided by local businesses as well as Resort partners and sponsors.
From the Ground Up auction bidding will conclude on September 25, 2011 at 8 p.m. EST.
