In support of regional youth programs and Mercy Flight, Holiday Valley donated $7,250 to several local groups on June 5, 2012. Throughout the season, Holiday Valley hosts events that not only entertain guests but generate funds for these donations. Events include the Fall Festival chairlift rides, Winter Carnival events and Snow Bar, and the Guns and Hoses Snowmakers Race.
Recipients of the checks were Ellicottville Youth Soccer Program, Great Valley Youth Program, Ellicottville Little League Football, Ellicottville-Cattaraugus-Little Valley Little League Baseball and Mercy Flight Emergency Helicopter Service.
