Special to the Vail DailyVail Valley: Some of last year's Love for the Ladies participants dressed as dead presidents.

VAIL, Colorado –Love for the Ladies, a freestyle snowboard and skiing event, will return to Beaver Creek March 27 in Colorado’s Vail Valley. The event raised nearly $6,000 for the Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group last year. This year’s Love for the Ladies will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Lumber Yard Terrain Park at Beaver Creek Mountain.

Affectionately called “Love for the Ladies (LFTL)” this event raises money for breast cancer awareness among the younger Eagle County generation, as well as raise money for the Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group.

Each registered team will be given their own section of the LFTL Web site, and a donation button will be created on their behalf to help them reach and surpass their pledge of $150. The team that raises the most money will receive a very special grand prize. All donations less the transaction fees will be donated to the Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group.

Love for the Ladies was started in the spring of 2009 by Nadherny in an effort to bring breast cancer knowledge and awareness to the local Eagle County snowboard and freeski community. She was joined by Secret Stache Media, a local Web strategy group known best for, to help execute and bridge the event’s online and offline activity. In 2009 the Love for the Ladies debut event raised nearly $6,000 from a collection of donations gathered primarily from local Vail Valley residents: a truly magnificent first year feat.
