Pink Heavenly Event Canceled to Limit Spread of COVID-19

(South Lake Tahoe, Calif.) - To protect community members, employees and care providers in the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19, Pink Heavenly, an annual fundraising event taking place at Heavenly Mountain Resort on March 21, 2020, has been cancelled. The decision was a precautionary measure with the importance of prevention and reducing the risk of vulnerable populations’ exposure in mind. While the on-mountain event is canceled, fundraising will continue for Pink Heavenly’s cause; Cancer Support Services through Barton Health - programs dedicated to improving the lives of those fighting cancer.

Barton’s hospital operations and clinical patient care across its network of medical offices remain fully operational. Heavenly Mountain Resort is also open and operating normally.

Pink Heavenly benefits Barton’s Cancer Support Services, a program that receives direct funding from the Barton Foundation to improve the lives of community members fighting cancer through wellness programs and help for patients and loved ones living with all types of cancer. Funds raised for Pink Heavenly 2020 will be rolled into next year’s Pink Heavenly event, happening March 2021 at Heavenly Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe.

“Pink Heavenly benefits some of our most vulnerable community members, and we encourage event participants to continue fundraising efforts and join us in support of local cancer patients” said Chris Kiser, Barton Foundation Executive Director. “Although this precaution was not an easy decision to make, it is the right decision to protect the health and safety of our community and our care providers. The Foundation will continue its commitment to Cancer Support Services through Barton Health and providing funding to keep these services available.
