Mike, You are such an inspiration to so many, I wish I could do more to help you! God Bless, Fletcher
So proud of you, Mike!
You've worked hard little bro.
Ready for the film to make it's debut!
Four ski-seasons into the documentary, filming is complete, we are at the editing stage; the hard part. Earlier funds received have been spent on filming; we have increased the fundraising goal to $17,500, as the reset-goal will account for a final $5,000-add to be spent on editing & film completion. Your donation buys you a presale ticket/receipt to the premier showing at a Seattle area venue. Entry fee will be set at $100, SUGGESTED DONATION; but all lesser donations will provide entry, ensuring that nobody stays home. For those who contribute, but cannot attend, their donation will provide them with a thumb-drive, containing the documentary film RETURN to PARADISE – A Skiers Journey.
A new $5,000 goal earmarked for editing, is our first objective; net revenue exceeding $5K after venue costs, will go to Higher Ground in Sun Valley, ID, supporting their Military Program. “HG Military uses therapeutic recreation to facilitate a change in perspective, giving injured service members the physical skills, confidence, and coping strategies necessary for a successful reintegration into their families and home communities”. At the door, we will accept contributions from those who wish to support the National Ski Hall of Fame Museum whose mission is: "To honor and celebrate the athletes and industry pioneers who have made a significant impact on skiing and snowboarding in America while preserving and showcasing the stories and artifacts that support their historic accomplishments in our museum at the birthplace of organized skiing in the USA – Ishpeming, Michigan."
Please print a copy of your donation confirmation; to serve as your entry ticket. If not attending; but requesting that the film be sent, by mail; please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, to make arrangements. I will be keeping a data base on my end, which will aid me in selecting an appropriate size venue. Thank you for your support. Follow Mike Vowels-Skier on FaceBook, to remain current on our progress and skiing adventures to come. Date & Seattle area venue location is TBD.
