You may be sat there wondering, all this fun surely comes at a price? Well actually, other than the hint of self-loathing after boozing too hard, it’s a guilt-free night. ALL of the money spent on tickets, merchandise, food and drinks at the MFA goes towards a number of local charities that help to keep Morzine the greatest place in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD. This years’ charities included:
Secours en Montagne: A team of rescue volunteers who put their own lives at risk to search for those missing in the mountains
ES Foundation: A charity set up in memory of local young athlete Ellie Souter. The foundation funds young athletes who need financial support to achieve their potential and dreams
The Morzine-Pleney Summer Build Crew: Supporting members of the MTB community in Morzine who volunteer to get the Pleney bike track built and read to ride for opening weekend. The tools and equipment used are funded by the MFA
The Pittle Pingouins Hockey Club: Helping youngsters of Morzine build friendships whilst training to become one of the mighty Pingouins!
This year, the MFA raised over €31,000, almost doubling what it had achieved the year before. The event is getting bigger and better each season and we can’t wait to see what next year has in store.
