LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Feb. 3, 2009 – Christy Sports stores in Boulder, Fort Collins and Flat Irons will participate by donating $1 per every sale. In conjunction with this effort, consumers will also be able to make additional donations of their own by stopping at or calling any of the three previously mentioned stores.
Mahon was the Eldora Mountain Resort general manager. He was tragically killed in a random shooting by a co-worker on Dec. 30, 2008 while at the resort.
Mahon first joined Eldora Mountain in 1991. He was a lifelong skier and volunteered his time at the YMCA in Boulder Valley. He is survived by his wife and two daughters, ages 12 and 15.
Rob Linde, the Director of Marketing at Eldora Mountain Resort, is grateful for Christy Sports and its willingness to help the Mahon family. “In tough economic times, we appreciate Christy Sports desire to donate money and to provide a way for their customers to give back. As a close business partner, we appreciate their support during this difficult time for our resort”
As a friend of Mahon, Dennis Meeker, Boulder store manager at Christy Sports felt it was important for the company to provide assistance to the Mahon family. “Christy Sports has worked closely with the Eldora Mountain Resort on other projects such as its Gear and Grow program, but this is personal and we are more than willing to step in and help where we can.”
To make a donation or for more information please contact Dennis Meeker at the Boulder Christy Sports at 303-442-2493.
