For the sixth year the ladies of Pajarito Mountain have sponsored the K2 Women’s Weekend. This event has historically paired the fun of skiing with the benefit of fundraising for the Anita Salas Foundation, a Northern New Mexico charity that benefits men and women diagnosed with breast cancer and women who have cervical cancer. This year, due to lack of precipitation, the skiing part of the event was moved to Taos. For the fundraising portion, the annual silent auction will be during Skiesta, from 2-3 p.m. Saturday at Pajarito Mountain, with registration starting at 1:30 p.m. in the Lodge.
Skiesta is an event where the public contribute to a very worthy and local charity while enjoying the music of Felix y Los Gatos — Zydeco music, snow competitions for all ages, costumes and five New Mexico Breweries.
The silent auction will be open to the public. There will be lots of ski gear, including a pair of K2 Talk Back 160 cm skis, spa services: 10,000 waves, facials, massages, fine art: stained glass, prints, pottery and many fine wines. There will also be handmade crafts: hats, scarves and jewelry just to name a few of the items local vendors have provided! All proceeds from the silent auction go directly to the Anita Salas Memorial Fund where 95 cents of every dollar goes directly to those in need.
