Voras Haynes Jr., left, receives a legislative citation award Wednesday night for his accomplishments as the current Snowshoe Foundation vice president and board member selection in 2004. Haynes was presented the award on behalf of the West Virginia Legislature by Delegate Phil Isner, D-Randolph.

One of the many accolades prompting the award is that Haynes ‘introduced the idea of fundraising through a massive raffle in May 2007,’ which came to fruition in August 2009 with the first ‘Treasure on the Mountain’ event. 2017 marked the first ever year that all 5,000 tickets were sold. Tickets for the 2018 event, slated to take place Aug. 4, are on sale now.
