The Pinehurst Project recently received a gift of stock valued at $10,839.71 from Arthur “Gene” Rogers of Eau Claire.
The gift was in memory of his wife, Irene, who learned to ski at Pinehurst many years ago. Together, they traveled all over the country skiing.
“I remember my wife standing at the top of a mountain overlooking Aspen, CO,” Gene explained. “She
was nervous, but I told her not to worry. The furthest you will fall is from your butt to the ground.” Gene
had many stories to share about his and his wife’s adventures while visiting with Pinehurst President,
Christian Peterson and Eau Claire Community Foundation Executive Director, Sue Bornick. “It was an
honor to receive this donation,” explained Peterson. “What a wonderful way to leave a legacy and
encourage more families to get their start at Pinehurst and see where the trail leads them.”
