WILDCAT MUG CLUB RAISES OVER $5000 IN DONATIONS TO ADAPTIVE & SKI TEAM PROGRAMS
The Wildcat Pub at Wildcat Mountain is home to a highly sought-after Mug Club. Like most, the mug club membership is limited and the waiting list to join is long. Members receive a handmade mug and enjoy various membership perks. At the end of each year, members are offered the chance to renew their membership for an annual fee. Members who do not renew forfeit their mug, which is then available to a potential new member.
This year, with only a few open spaces and extremely high-demand, Wildcat decided to get creative and support two great organizations while filling the remaining spaces. On November 24, Wildcat announced that they would be accepting the highest bids for the remaining spaces, with one caveat. Every dollar over $55 (the Mug Club renewal rate) per bid would be donated to AbilityPlus Adaptive Sports and the Wildcat Ski Team. After two weeks of bidding, Wildcat collected a total of 116 bids. 28 lucky bidders won with the lowest bid at $160, and the highest bids at $500. Due to the success & generosity of bidders Wildcat Mountain will donate just under $3000 to each organization.
