Recently during the fifth annual Paint the Mountain Pink event, hosted by Shawnee Mountain Ski Area, Loreen Peknic purchased the grand prize ticket and won the Nidecker “Score” snowboard.
“When I purchased the ticket I requested number 444. My Mom’s birthday was 4-4-44. My Mom passed away five years ago of leukemia at age 68. I purchased the raffle ticket specifically for the snowboard to help fight cancer and as a gift for my son’s birthday that had just passed. After purchasing the ticket, I told him he was going to win because it was a birthday gift from his Grandma,” stated Peknic.
A total of $1,900 was raised during the breast cancer awareness event and donated to the Hope for Strength Breast Cancer Fund/LVHN-Pocono Foundation. For more information, visit hopeforstrength.com.
