Last February, the Lindsey Vonn Foundation reached a milestone by hosting its first big event! A fundraiser and banquet was held at the Donovan Pavilion in Vail Colorado during the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
It was a beautiful evening, with nearly 200 supporters of the Lindsey Vonn Foundation in attendance. Guests were invited to participate in a silent auction that boasted a number of fabulous prizes.
One lucky supporter won a Denver Broncos VIP Experience, which offered box seats in Mile High Stadium, a private tour of the training facility and a meet-and-greet with Peyton Manning himself. Another won a package with Vail Resorts that included four Epic Passes and luxurious accommodations at Game Creek.
Lindsey Vonn Foundation supporter and famed American designer, Cynthia Rowley generously donated a unique experience to the guest with the highest bid: a day at her New York City design studio.
The event was a huge success, raising $380,000 for the Lindsey Vonn Foundation, which will fund initiatives that empower young women to find their voice and develop the confidence they need to succeed! LVF wishes to extend special thanks for Vail Resorts for making this inaugural event and lovely evening possible.
