For Immediate Release
Brought to you by Buckeye Cruise for Cancer, Coors Light, and Snow Trails
Mansfield, OH: The inaugural "White-Out Cancer" event at Snow Trails will be held Saturday, January 23rd. Guests and family can receive discounts throughout the weekend of Friday, January 22nd through Sunday, January 24th at Snow Trails. Buckeye greats, Craig Krenzel, Justin Zwick, Ryan Miller and other former Buckeye football players will join guests for a day of fundraising in the lodge, on the Ski Slopes and in the Tubing Park Saturday, January 23rd.
The Slopes and Tubing Park will open at 9AM Saturday. Buckeye Cruise fundraising activities begin at 10AM and run through 5PM in the main Ski Lodge. Guests can walk away with great prizes and one-of-a-kind autographed Buckeye memorabilia. The Slopes will stay open until 9:30PM and the Tubing Park until Midnight. Ski packages and tubing tickets can be purchased online with a 10 percent savings going to the guest. Snow Trails will donate 10 percent of the proceeds to support the Urban and Shelley Meyer Fund for Cancer Research at the OSUCCC - James.
DJ entertainment from 1PM-5PM, while fundraising activities take place with Buckeye Athletes, followed by a live performance by the band "Swagg" starting at 9:00PM in The Snowflake Loft at Snow Trails. Kids are welcome in the Loft until 9PM.
Every February more than 35 former Buckeye Athletes to include Archie Griffin, AJ Hawk and Scoonie Penn join 3,500 Buckeye fans, cancer survivors and families on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship for a unique and meaningful adventure. But during that adventure, it is apparent that the reason the Buckeye Cruise exists is to combat cancer and be part of the cure. The Buckeye Cruise for Cancer has helped raise over 8 million dollars for cancer research in eight years!
