Golf Tournament

When golf great Gary Player was finished designing the Raven Golf Course, he was left in awe by it’s scenery: “I have yet to see a course that compares with this one for mountain beauty,” said Player. It’s only appropriate that such an incredible golf tournament be held in such inspiring scenes. The Snowshoe Foundation Golf Tournament is a 4-person best ball tournament. Prizes for standard golf tournaments are provided along with a live auction that will leave you salivating over the items. Great Golf, Incredible Course, Quality Food and Drink, and Wonderful Prizes – You’ve got to experience the Snowshoe Foundation Golf Tournament!

On The Mountain

It’s mind-blowing! Buying a raffle ticket for the Treasure on the Mountain Raffle sponsored by Davis Trust and the Snowshoe Foundation enters you in the best raffle contest in West Virginia. Locating the raffle party on the top of Snowshoe Mountain with incredible food and drink vendors, awesome entertainment, and hundreds of festive patrons, all of your senses will experience euphoria (even if you don’t have a winning ticket)!

Treasure on the Mountain tickets are sold out.

Annual Event

Dave Dekema
Holiday Toy Drive

Many local families can use a helping hand, especially during the holiday season. A toy can bring joy and hope to the life of a child. The Snowshoe Foundation invites individuals and businesses to donate to our annual Holiday Toy Drive, which honors the life of a great leader, our dear friend and community member, David Dekema. Direct donations for our 2019 Holiday Toy Drive will be accepted throughout the year. We welcome your participation. We humbly thank you for your decision to donate holiday joy to local children during this year's season of lights.


Benefit Dinner

Each February, the Winter Benefit Dinner provides the best live entertainment, incredible food, and the most fun that can be had on the mountain. Whether you’re casually enjoying the company of those in attendance, or trying to win one of the many auction items, the Snowshoe Foundation puts on a magical evening. One of the best ways to donate to the Foundation is to secure your tickets today and attend the Winter Benefit Dinner. It may just be one of the most fun evenings of your life.

* The ice dinner event for 2021 has been canceled.

Being a Good Neighbor: Addressing Challenges to Help Local Families

The Snowshoe Foundation strives to be the good neighbor to families in the local communities that surround us. It is a privilege to live in this area of the state, yet some unique challenges exist that highly populated areas do not deal with. There are multiple needs that our smaller communities face, and the Foundation prides itself on helping these communities and the families within overcome these challenges. Stronger communities are better for everyone. Whether rebuilding a fence around a local baseball field, helping provide funding for local food banks, supporting healthier lifestyle events, or supplementing higher education scholarships, the Snowshoe Foundation is dedicated to being a good neighbor during good times, as well as difficult moments.
