Vermont Properties’ 11th annual Comedy Night benefits Okemo Mountain School

The 11th Annual "Laugh out Loud" Comedy Night sponsored by Vermont Properties and Development, Inc. raised over $3,000 for Okemo Mountain School's Scholarship Fund. The event was held on Saturday, Feb. 23 in the Clock Tower Base Lodge at Okemo Mountain. Comedian Bob Marley performed for a sold out crowd of almost 300 local community members and guests of Okemo.

Mariel Meringolo and Erica Kattalia of Okemo Mountain School (OMS) would like to gratefully acknowledge Vermont Properties and Development, Inc. for organizing and sponsoring this great event and particularly for designating OMS as a beneficiary.  "We are so thankful for Vermont Properties' continued support of OMS. Every dollar raised for scholarships is crucial.  Scholarships give many student-athletes the opportunity to attend OMS when they otherwise would not have been able" says Meringolo. Vermont Properties' efforts are greatly appreciated by the entire school community!

Okemo Mountain School is a non-profit educational institution dedicated to the academic and athletic development of serious snow sports athletes. Student-athletes are given the opportunity to train in alpine ski racing, snowboarding, and freestyle skiing, while pursuing a rigorous course of academic study. Okemo Mountain School relies heavily on fundraisers and charitable donations to help keep tuition affordable and provide scholarships to deserving student-athletes.
