Mom's Day Off Raises $12k for Breast Cancer Services

BENNINGTON, VT—April 4, 2024— Bromley Mountain’s 21st annual “Mom’s Day Off” fundraiser set a new record on March 1, raising $12,000 to benefit breast cancer care at the Dartmouth Cancer Center at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC).

Recently retired Bromley General Manager (GM) Bill Cairns (pictured center) and incoming GM Josh Witkin (left) presented a check to President and CEO of SVMC Thomas A. Dee, FACHE, on Thursday, March 28 at the Peru, VT ski resort. 

“Mom’s Day Off is an event close to our hearts at Bromley Mountain,” said Cairns. “The community really shows up each year to make a difference. I’m thrilled that my final year at Bromley is breaking records and setting the bar a little higher for 2025!”

Bromley donated more than $7,600 in proceeds from lift ticket sales, which are sold at a discounted rate of $30 for the day. The Wild Boar Tavern at Bromley also donated 50% of its food sales to the cause, totaling $2,257. Participants and community members made additional donations on Mom’s Day Off, including a $2,000 gift from the Women of Willard, that brought the grand total this year to $11,988.

“Our cancer center has an exceptional team in place to support our patients,” said SVMC’s Tom Dee. “These philanthropic dollars make it possible for that team to go further and provide support that goes beyond treatments. Thank you to Bromley, the Wild Boar Tavern and everyone who came out to make this possible.”
