NEWRY – The Sunday River Ski Resort will host a benefit ski weekend from Jan. 25 to 27.

Proceeds from the Lenny Clarke Ski Classic will benefit The Genesis Fund, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for New England children born with birth defects, mental retardation and genetic diseases.

People participating are offered three days of skiing, two nights of lodging at the Grand Summit Hotel and events that include fireworks and a comedy show.

The benefit is named for actor and comedian Lenny Clarke, who will perform Jan. 26. Other events include Texas Hold’em poker and an on-slope poker run, a family banquet, and a silent and live auction.

The package costs $875 for a single adult, $1,100 for two adults, and $300 for each additional adult. A children’s pass to the event is $175, while a non-lodging pass is $300.
