Mountain businesses team up for raffle to benefit restaurants posted on 02/01/2021

Two Mount Hood businesses have teamed up to show some love to local restaurants struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic this Valentine’s Day.

Mount Hood Cannabis in Rhododendron will raffle a custom-made snowboard from Welches-based Habitual Snowboard Company in an effort to promote dining at local restaurants impacted by a loss of business due to the pandemic. The drawing will be held on Valentine’s Day, Sunday, Feb. 14, a holiday that is traditionally a busy day for the restaurant industry.

“A significant part of our customer base are chefs, waiters and dishwashers at local restaurants. They’re really taking a beating due to COVID this season,” said Michael Budd, owner of Mount Hood Cannabis. “Both of our businesses are having a great snow season, and we wanted to transfer some of that benefit back to others.”

Community members can enter the drawing for free by bringing a receipt from dining at a local restaurant in 2021 to Mount Hood Cannabis. The receipt will be exchanged for five raffle tickets.

Raffle tickets are also available for purchase at the dispensary and at Mountain Mogul Pizza, located at 68278 East Hwy. 26 in Welches, for individuals under the age of 21. Ticket costs are one for $5, three for $10 and seven for $20. Proceeds from the sale of the tickets will be donated to Meals on Wheels.

Budd stated the partnership with Habitual Snowboards was a natural fit because “the product is exciting, and it will hopefully energize people to get involved.”

Habitual Snowboards is a Mount Hood-founded “farm to table” snowboard company that uses locally sourced American manufactured materials to craft their boards entirely in-house at their shop in Welches.

“Supporting our local community is just as important to us as shaping and riding snowboards,” the company notes on its website.

Mount Hood Cannabis also highlighted the importance of community involvement to their business.

“Our customers and employees just want to be positive influences on the community, and we’re always looking for a way to contribute,” Budd said.

Mount Hood Cannabis is located at 73410 Hwy. 26 in Rhododendron and can be contacted by phone at 503-622-4272. More information about the dispensary, including updates on the raffle, can be found on its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Mount-Hood-Cannabis-Compnay-1520388478061986/.
