Charging to the Top: EverBank Supports Our Peak Performers

April 1, 2016 3 MIN READ

We never take our role as a corporate sponsor lightly. Sponsorships, for us, are truly about helping create the ultimate fan experience and to connect in a very meaningful way with passionate and driven individuals across the country. Accomplishing this isn’t always easy. It takes hard work and dedication to elevate an event beyond the expected. And it’s always worth it. Speaking of elevate, this month we’re thrilled to tell you more about our high alpine work as a Cornerstone Partner of the Vail Valley Foundation and to invite you to participate in the EverBank Vail Mountain Escape Sweepstakes.

The Vail Valley Foundation is committed to enhancing and sustaining the spirit of the Vail Valley by providing leadership in athletic, cultural and educational endeavors. And since 2014, we’ve proudly partnered with the foundation in support of its mission and major international events such as the 2014 and 2015 Birds of Prey World Cup ski races, the lone U.S. stop on the men’s World Cup ski circuit, as well as the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 2015.

EverBank has been an exceptional partner in all that we do, from the arts and music to culture, education, athletics, and the fruition of our mission in the Vail Valley.

- Mike Imhof, Vail Valley Foundation acting CEO

So what’s up for us next in the Vail Valley? This year, we’re going beyond the slopes and breaking out the summer gear as the official bank of the 2016 GoPro Mountain Games . The event, which will welcome competitors from around the world to the mountains of Vail from June 9 - 12, is widely considered the country’s largest celebration of adventure sports, arts and music.

Today, as part of the lead up to the games, we’re excited to invite you to participate in the EverBank Vail Mountain Escape Sweepstakes. Enter by April 22 for your chance to be there for all of the action. The winner and a guest will even have the opportunity to go from spectator to participant in a select GoPro Mountain Games event. Maybe you’d be up for the challenge of the EverBank Half Marathon and its nearly 3,000-foot climb from Vail Village to the top of Vail Pass? This is destined to be one of the more breathtaking events of the week.

The conclusion of the games won’t conclude our summer in Vail, however. In July and August, we’ll be stepping out in support of the Vail International Dance Festival. The event, now in its 28th year, has established Vail as one of the top summer dance destinations in the world. And this summer, it will be celebrating its 10th year under the highly acclaimed direction of Artistic Director Damian Woetzel.

This is clearly a very active year for us in Vail, and we’re excited and honored by the opportunity to be a part of the action. If you happen to be visiting or passing through central Colorado this summer, keep an eye out for us. We’re always excited to meet up and chat with clients about more than just today’s market conditions. Though we can do that, too, if adventure sports or dance aren’t your things.
