Grand Forks businesses raise money for Phoenix snow cat

T-shirt proceeds to go toward a used snow groomer for the mountain

A Grand Forks t-shirt sale raised over $5,000 for Phoenix Mountain on Saturday, April 17.

All proceeds will go toward the mountain’s purchase of a moderately used snow-caterpillar, or “snow cat,” according to sale co-ordinator Madeline Williams.

Saturday’s fundraiser brought in over $4,000 through the sale of nearly 100 Phoenix-themed t-shirts supplied by co-sponsors Crowsnest Creative and Work n’ Play. Williams said she and other volunteers also raised around $1,000 in cash donations.

Williams, who owns Creative Crowsnest, said she and Work n’ Play owner Amber Osovoloff are looking for additional sponsors before they can launch a second t-shirt sale.
